So anyone root w/ this phone, as previously posted, the sprint guy says not to root your google phone etc. I dont know how so I wouldn't do it myself, but will it allow me to access more wifi etc?
The nexus S is one of the easier phones to root as it is a Google developer phone. Google posts how to unlock the bootloader ( three simple words ' fastboot oem unlock ')
Rooting will void your warranty but there are internal sprint memos telling techs that they must support/ fix rooted devices. YmMV
I got an nexus S for my wife and have yet to root it
I root for wifi tethering and to use titanium backup to backup my Apps etc
On my MoPho I also rooted to hack the webtop mode to work without any webtop add on devices.
If I had a Nexus I would unlock the bootloader to run cyanogen but otherwise the pure google experience is something to writers home about.
If you have no interest in free wifi tethering or running custom firmware then you can just leave it be
