Disclaimer: I am an old guy with messed up hands and not very good with touch screens, so I've resisted the whole idea for as long as possible, but finally events beyond my control have resulted in my getting a cheap Android phone. Having said that, as a (long, but part-time...) Linux user I know that having root access can be very helpful. Specifically with regards to Android apps it is also obvious that many require root access. So I've started looking at info about rooting and found references to the XDA dev forum right away that is way more complicated than my old brain can get itself around. I've seen ample mention of the Framaroot app by someone at that forum too. It has many versions - and looks enticing - but I'll need the specific model # from my phone (in transit) before I can tell if it can or will work. Found some nifty looking articles on the topic, like these: Fastest Method to Root any Android Phone Without a Computer http://techverse.net/fastest-root-android-phone-computer/ How to Root your Android Phone or Tablet and Why you Should http://techverse.net/how-to-root-your-android-phone-tablet-and-why/ Of course there's loads of references to using modded versions like Cyanogenmod too. Would some of the helpful & experienced folks here please share helpful pointers for easily & safely gaining root access on Android-powered devices, please ?? Thanks.
