    "I wanted to root my phone when I flew to Indo to surf last month and I found this delightful, step by step video that even a jet lagged traveler can follow. Followed the instructions and I was dialed in to internet on my Third World Surfari. I really liked the choice of background music...Also Sprach Zarathustra...theme from 2001 Space Odyssey! I expected my phone to announce, "I'm sorry Dave, but I can't let you do that!" , but it worked instead! Kudos! "
