If you don't mind dumpstats, you can go Body 1 / Agility 1 and put those into Charisma and Logic for either 4/4 or 5/3, split how you see fit. You can also select Infusion of [Data Processing / Attack] as CFs to raise them higher. That said, your limit at that point is really skills.

Oh hey, I looked over the Edit File action and Editor. Where are peopel getting that it bypasses Protection and Data Bombs?
I don't know.

I'm trying Attributes A, Resonance B, Meta C, Skills d, Resources E, but I really am just thinking of switching Skills and Meta. I'd still have 3 edge (Not the best I know), but trying to shoehorn in Skills-D is just to hard for me and the character concept. I forgot to fill in the background. She was born to a pair of technomancer prejudiced parents, they didn't find out about her abilities until she was around 12-13, they didn't want to have what they saw as an abomination as a daughter, but didn't want to to kill her personally, so they left her in one of (Insert city here, probably Seattle) most worst areas, she learned how to use her abilities to keep her alive.

Probably the build I will go with

A good place to tie in "growing up on the streets" is Knowledge Skills. Knowledge of Sprawl Life and tons of Area Knowledge help. Its also a great way to flavor your contacts. Chances are, as a child (even a technomancer), your character didn't survive entirely on their own. Flavoring some Contacts as people who helped them get by would add some game-relevant flavor and plot hooks.

That's was what I was planning on doing, just don't have the time to com-pletely write the background at the moment.
