Hey guys/gals I'm leaving root for a while and going ota .596 for the time being. I'm going miss it but hey, I've had a wild ride, been rooting since my old G1 days ...I will eventually come back and I will still support the amazing devs! See y'all in the near future.

The main reason is that I'm never satisfied with any rom and I would always end up soft bricking and doing an sbf. Plus, if I ever need to use my insurance I can without being charged for full price...I already almost couldn't sbf one time due to my camera button not working. I had to put it into bootloader mode and almost couldn't. This way I feel safe. After I get out of this contract, I'm definitely going back to root, then my new phone I will keep it stock for the same reason of insurance purposes.

Rooting voids warranty .. not insurance.. just a thought.

Yep but I was going to be charged for my phone being rooted if I didn't sbf it before sending it in for a warranty exchange when my camera button stopped working. I didn't use my insurance claim...sorry for that confusion...

U also don't technically have to have the camera button working to Sbf. As long as its hooked up to the computer before u turn it on it'll go into the bootloader for u. So no matter what u can still sbf before u send it in even if any buttons were broken cept the power button. and im sure once they got it to the factory and fix it they arent gonna call back and be like hey this was rooted.

No doubt at least you get the stability plus you can still make minor tweaks like removing bloatware etc

I do hate the bloatware. I doubt I will last a week longer on this. Especially if that one statement about the bootloader mode starting up automatically is true, I never knew that.
