Me: Hmm... My Android phone has been acting strange lately, cell signal keeps dropping... Maybe I picked up a virus... let's flash the latest update.

Phone: Updating Done

Me: Hm... signal is still bad... maybe it's hardware... *Angry*

Phone: By the way you lost root

Me: @#$%$&&$%^#$!#$@$%$#%^ OK LETS SEE, SUPERSU, REINSTALL THE BINARIES... YES!!!

Phone: Reinstalling... Restarting...

Phone: Flashing... Restarting...

Me: Please, please... let this work.... it's not starting............. wait. IT LOADED!!!! WOOT!!!! AWESOME...

    @Paramite actually seems on marshmallow, dev mode has a ROOT option which seems good enough I guess...

    Kinda of don't want to go thru trouble of taking a NAND dump. My data partition is like 15gb...

    @sragha45 apparently it's a switcharoo...

    The requirements listed on the job description apparently are the technologies they want to migrate from in favor of a webapp... Whereas I kinda wanted to go the opposite direction...
