After a long time of deliberation I’ve decided I’m going to root my phone.
Apparently rooting gives you full access to your phones capabilities, over-riding the manufacturer’s restrictions and allowing you to do all kinds of things that you couldn’t do before – as well as being able to run all manner of cool and useful apps that will only run on rooted phones.
I’ll expand on this topic in a full post soon. This is just an on the fly update posted from my phone as I’m all over the place atm.
Full details later.
