To root or not to root, that is the question...
« on: December 19, 2012, 08:45:58 AM »
Okay so I've finally got my N4 and so far only installed Apex Launcher and Tapatalk just so I can come on here and the N7 Forums.
I don't know whether I should root or not...

I know the benefits but my Banking app and Sky Go won't work on a rooted device, my S2 was rooted but I unrooted to use those two apps and I'm really unsure whether to root the N4 or not. I have to say I really like stock JB, I have CM10.1 on my Nexus 7 so can't use Sky Go on that and my banking app incompatible on the N7. I'm think that I'll use my N7 more for multimedia thus I need root for Stickmount (not that I need Stickmount) with CM10.1)....

Thoughts please Nexus 4 owners?

I rooted, if only to have the same apps on it as my Nexus 10.

I rooted my 7 as well.

I'm not that fussed about Sky Go, and my bank's app (currently) works on my rooted 10.

Again, it's upto you  ;D

Keeping my N4 stock for a while... 

And, why won't your bank apps work with a rooted device??
