    S4??

    Wassup guys just recently got my s4 yesterday. I came from htc one v root with cynaprimo 4.2.2 and was a great phone. l was wondering if its worth roothing this phone since it already comes with 4.2.2. And if I do decide to root what would I have to sacrifice, like mms,or video recording on a certain resolution bluetooth? I know it depends on the rom. All iwanna know is it worth it.

    Thanks

    Is the very first thing I install when I root a phone. Before I do any changes to my phone I performer a back up of the stock rom just in case.

    This is the first phone I haven't rooted almost immediately in probably 3 or more years! It has so many little features that it keeps kind of interesting besides great performance.. They released the new cwm 10.2 nightlies not to long ago so that has my attention, otherwise to find good roms at this point you have to venture around to like xda and see if anyone has made there roms also good for cricket as well... I saw a couple but nothing that felt worth it so far..
