  1. Pradeep, I went through the installations and the reboot OK. Now I have a very stupid question….How do I know it has worked? And how do I delete my bloatware? Thanks!

  2. My anti-virus said the zergrush file had a trojan attached to it and it was then deleted.

  3. No reboot after root complete

  4. I am having trouble – I have the latest device drivers, the phone is enabled for USB debugging, and the phone is connected via USB, but I cannot get past this part of the screen:

    [*] Waiting for device…
    * daemon not running. starting it now *
    * daemon started successfully *
