  1. Besides that, I've lost SoundHound, Sound Recorder and Calculator as well. Also checked the comments on the new Cyanogedmod 12 you propose and make a video on, that lots of people have all sort of pretty important nagging issues … so why would you do all this, including a site on it!? … To all of you guys trying to do it, check thoroughly if it really worth rooting your phone or is it just for the sake of 'feeling' a bit like a hacker …. Now I ended up without my personal data, the apps above missing and my old version of Android. My advice: don't do it.

  2. Hey Max Lee! I've lost all my pics and videos and many other personal data because I listened and watched your video …

    I understand that maybe it was too hard for you to update your video with such an important aspect, but I think you could have edit one line in the first lines under your introduction below the video with IMPORTANT UPDATE: SAVE YOUR PICS & VIDEOS AS THEY WILL BE LOST!!! Not as written on the video and verbally affirmed that only personal setting and apps will be deleted …!?! …

    Lost 25 GB of pics, videos and personal data as of you not correcting the video …. !?
    Hope you feel awesome, as I don't, after losing all pics with places I've been, family and friends photos …
