  1. Does this mean we can install a custom recovery? From what I understand we can gain root however, we still are unable to install a custom recovery…

    1. You can gain root, that is not the issue. Unlocking the bootloader and installing custom roms is. But they have a whole write up on how to partition the drive so you can load custom roms on to it. Go to the XDA forums and they will epxlain all.

  2. has anyone had problems i with bricking from downgrading to cml? I have already bricked my phone once and don’t want that to happen again but at the same time I want root.
