View Full Version : Another Root question

11-27-2010, 03:01 AM
So, here they are. Only a few and I should be good (for now)

I plan on using the Z4 root method
-Titanium back up

If I root and freeze the apps, that will save battery life, right?

Secondly, if I do freeze then I will have no issues with updates to my DX, right?

Lastly, if something happens to my phone and I need to send it back to Verizon, I will have to unroot, right? Is as simple as just hitting the unroot button on Z4?

If I can not unroot for what ever reason and send it back, will the insurance I pay for through Verizon still going to caver any of the phone or am I SOL?

If you freeze apps, it can/will save you battery life, really no downside to it.
Freezing apps instead of deleting then will save you a headache for future OTA updates. I suggest freezing instead of delete

I used to worry about unrooting (just in case something happens) alot but with the one click unroot methods available now helps with that paranoia. :p
Just make sure to always make backups before doing any modding on your phone, it'll save you from headaches.

In addition to what wicked and diesel offered - you can always "thaw" out those frozen apps when an update is coming - thus as wicked said, freezing is more beneficial than deleting as you then have to then persue another path to get your phone back to stock...

If I've rooted a while back, is there anything that rooting via new methods will give me that I don't have? Wicked mentioned in another thread that one of the newer methods was beleived to have up-to-date superuser and busy box. Do these things go out of date? Will apps needing root-level access in the future not work if I've rooted too long ago?

But yes, it is from the device once rooted using Titanium Backup from the market...

Thanks for the advice all, I have not been around for a few days. I'm thinking I should just suck it up and try rooting.
