  1. Well, I just spoke with Verizon, and they tell me there is no reason to root the Commando, and that doing so will void my warranty. As I am not interested in changing the format or reprogramming anything, aren’t they correct?

    When I read about rooting it, I thought it was needed for some stability or security reason, but now I don’t think so.

    Am I correct?

    • Rooting you device can cause the warranty to be void although in most cases it does not seem to matter. We have sent back 3 different phones to motorola and 1 to samsung and both covered them while rooted. Although they do say it is to their discretion. As far as rooting needs, if you aren’t planning on running a custom ROM or app that requires root access there is no need to root.

  2. Ok, I’m new at this, obviously, and pretty lost. Still can’t root using ant means. If this works, I’m missing something. I have every means of communicating with the Commando,but just can’t get root. Any details/ screen shots of the steps to ROOT would be great. Help a n00b out!
