    Then I guess you won't be getting a Priv.

    I dont know why you would say that. I like the hardware piece of the Priv. I just want the ability to put certain apps I use that require root permissions on the phone.

    He said that because the Priv is not rootable.

    The hardware based security checking of the O/S will make it so that rooting can't be done and still have the phone work. If some does find a way to "root" it, that will cause the phone to brick the first time the phone is booted, as the digital signature of the O/S will have changed and thus the hardware will not allow the O/S to boot.

    What do these apps do that require root permissions?

    Iow, if Priv is rooted, it can't be properly booted. Simple.

    But wasn't it that BB10 didn't allow users to block internet access to individual apps?
