Actually, I'm glad you did. Because after having woken up with a fresh mind, you have managed to convince me and change standpoint on this topic, and that is not an easy thing to do. Today, I think the "average" (~99.99%) user should not have access to a rooted/ROM'ed phones, but that the remainder who really whish/need to, should have an opportunity to do so. (As I think that was the case for the HTC One X, some time ago.) However, I leave this conversation with the reservation that ODM's should be scrutinized and legally controlled against putting too much and intrusive bloat on their phones. (Whats going on with that Xiaomi case anyway? )

well in the end, i am afraid it does not make this big difference if your phone is rooted or not when it comes to the global view of our data security.
