I'm brand new to android and I see many people have 'Rooted' there phones.
Q is, what exactly is root?
What does it do to your phone?
What is the possitive side to it?
BTW, i have a current contract with my SP, so I can only get my droid X10 later this year.
+1 for root. Root basically gives you more control over the phone, the positive side being you can customize it more to your liking. And it's been made a whole lot easier thanks to the One Click Root app.
I recommend to wait; mine is rooted, no big deal about it, i just uninstalled moxier and foreign keyboards. There are only a few useful applications that require root, if you can live without them just wait for the update.
