Windows Well, this can't be a good sign. Samsung has told CNET that the company will not be launching its Windows RT tablet in the United States, citing a lack of demand and consumer confusion. After I spent an afternoon in my country's largest electronics retailer, it's hard not to agree with Samsung.

I can say that in my time owning the phone, all of my Google searches led to much more complicated guides than that. I don't know how well it'll work, but thanks--I'll try it when I get the chance.

Unfortunately for now it'll have to wait, because I can't risk bricking my phone without the ability to just get a proper replacement ASAP if something goes wrong.

Look for the Gordita Root exploit by jcase. Very robust.

Come on. Rooting an Android device is as complicated as doing a file-transfer on Windows Phone.

I rooted dozend of Android devices and never bricked one. Granted I have experience but clicking a few times the next Button isn't that difficult. The whole rooting process is simple, straith forward and like replacing the vendor's Android version with CM doesn't require hacking-skills. The two biggest problems are the need for another computer and the lose of warranty.

And if something does happen? I am shit out of luck with no phone. Sorry, but I can't risk that.
