The text in the wizard that talks about root for unrooted phones makes people think root is required.

This has been told to be several times by different types of users, and I agree frankly. The wording is confusing.

Could we just entirely skip this page and not say anything about root if they aren't rooted? IMHO e shouldn't be recommending they root their phone just for Orbot.

To clarify: I know we don't recommend they root their phone now, but by even mentioning it, we give the impression they're missing out and plant a seed of confusion. Best to leave it out entirely.

From a user:

"it means the first thing a user hits is an alert that things aren't right. that yellow icon is like a big give up sign"
