Well, I love learning about technology so that's one reason. Second is that it also opens the door to many posibilities now that I have spent some time with it (them rooted apps!!). Third is the ROMs, I heard there are some pretty nice ROMs out there. Besides, I used Linux after all, and with Android also built upon Linux kernel... thought I might want some consistency.

ROMs don't require root to flash.

The reason I have to ask is because I see so many people who think they need root just because. There needs to be a reason in my opinion for you to want/need root access. So many others simply root because they think they need it only to jack it all up.
