Re: [PLUG] Rooting Phone Experiences

I personally had no issue and actually enjoyed rooting my wife's OnePlus One when we got it. Just make sure that when you start rooting go with something basic like the clean install of android from google and with something like the Moto X Pure you can easily find a well explained walkthrough. Always remember to read the whole doc twice before attempting to root and double check to see if anyone has run into issues with it.

However, their web page has all kinds of scary warnings about rooting, and
I definitely cannot afford to brick this device.  It seems like this is a
fairly simple process, but the cost of being wrong is potentially very high
(non-working $400 phone).  Before I proceed, I wanted to see how other
people (who are braver and smarter, but not as good-looking as me) have
fared rooting their phones.

Has anyone on this list had a bad experience rooting their phone?
