It's also not something that I readily recommend for those that don't have some level of technical aptitude. The process can be both tedious and stomach-turning. lol

Is this akin to jail-breaking an iPhone?

Yep, although rooting an Android allows significantly more technical revision than jail-breaking an iPhone.

Just wanted to update this

I ended up picking up a nokia 1520 to replace my note 2. Always wanted to try a windows phone.

So now I have an 5s and 1520

Also like to draw on the picture of the clients yard and give them a quick alternative to what they currently have. Android provides more free apps, removable memory (micro sd) and larger screen to view.

Not to high trying to hijack the thread but how are you doing this, and what app? For what is worth I love my note 2.
