Root for brand new pb's - Guide how to do it
With the recent influx of persons new to the RIM platform due to the recent price reductions of the PlayBooks series, if interest in rooting is to increase the info is sorely needed.
The expression "Golden Opportunity" comes to mind. (Last chance also) to generate and increase long term interest.
(Grow numerically number of persons who are actively interested in what can be done by modifying core system files /access to such.)
As it is currently:
A: Info is scattered across multiple threads, little tid-bits here are there.
B: Skill level of persons posting info is not known, resulting in incorrect or outdated info being posted.
C: Info you do find may brick the device, result in a unsuccessful root.
D: Info Xsacha posts on the subject are cryptic in nature due to his high skill level, his familiarity with the process.
(Xsacha while being very knowledgeable posts on the subject are very cryptic due to him being so familiar with the process, failures that might occur.)
What I'm reading and have experienced on the rooting section is old timers complaining about all the newbies asking the same rooting questions over and over again.
(EG: You create a thread trying to get verification on the process and they tell you to do a search -LOL... With the same effort if there was a STICKY on the subject you could point newbies to that.)
How do you bypass forced non-root friendly 2.1.OS update, and ROOT a new, never powered on PlayBook?
Seems like to me there should be a STICKY on the process in which you could point newbies to, that is updated with procedural changes , tips, tricks. Info in the walk-thru format that would enable someone new to the scene to perform the procedure properly.
As it relates to that, increasing numerically the amount of persons interested "rooting" the platform is a good thing.
PS: There are alot of potenial Xsacha's out there, that if pointed in the right direction would be a asset in the long term. Wouldn't it be better to have a thousand Xsacha's out there versus (1)?
Never know where the next Xsacha may come from you know, like a tree a seed needs to be planted.
Seed= Sticky on Rooting procedure.
