If you recently purchased the “near perfect” Samsung Epic 4G Touch on Sprint and were toying with the idea of rooting your device, you now have one more reason to take the plunge. Or rather — one less reason to not take the plunge. The stock kernel for the Epic Touch has finally been made available and flashable via Odin allowing users to root their devices with reckless abandon. This means if something were to go wrong during the rooting process, you flashed a buggy ROM, or you just plain decide root isn’t all that its cracked up to be, you can now return to the a normal, factory state. As they say in the Android modding community — you don’t truly own your device until you root it.
