  1. I am VERY new to rooting, flashing ROMs, unlocking bootloaders( I’ve unlocked 1) and pretty much everything involved in modifying android devices. I have to say a big THANK YOU to you, RootJunky for making your YouTube videos as well. Between your xda forums and YouTube, you have helped make this not only less terrifying, but also enjoyable. Thanks again!
