I'm new to the forum, and I'm hoping to stick around and participate cause I'm really into my Android (JRO03C, v. 4.1.1). Tonight I successfully rooted it, which is awesome, however I'm baffled by one thing.
It was my understanding that when you unlock / root your phone (e.g. through Nexus Root Toolkit), you lose all the data on your phone.
Hi y'all I have ATT Samsung Infuse 2.3.5 Edge. I had it rooted about 8 months ago to use with T-Mobile. All was fine for several months til I did the check for updates and there were and of course I did it. Yea I know better now. But the guy who actually rooted my phone was out of town so I took to someone he recommended. The phone works ie. calling, texting, going on the internet.
Got quite a bit of questions, don't know anything about Android
1. After you root your device does it reset everything you have or do you keep everything?
2. Can you install more than one ROM or you can only install one? If you can only install one, how do you combine ROMs so you can use the other one in conjunction?
3. Good root apps I should have

I am trying to root my evo 4g with hboot 2.18 without losing my apps or the app data so I can transfer them to my new galaxy s3. Kids would freak if I lost their angry birds progress. I used the non htcdev, non enrevoked3 method to get most of the way there. I have unlocked bootloader and think I got root. I flashed a rom and lost everything but had root access on apps..

Has anyone had problems rooting it, and after rooting it?
Most of you might be very much familiar with the rooting procedure. Its the process of giving yourself superuser permissions (ex - administrator in windows xp ).
If you are using a custom rom, then there is no need to specifically root your phone.
I want to root my device with odin and chainfire. I know this basically leaves my recovery
untouched and modifies some system files so as to allow root apps to install themselves
in a way that they can run with root permssion.
1. I would like to know more about exactly what changes this kind of rooting does to the
device's file system.
