Default

the archangel root method isnt 'true' root, and doesnt allow re-writing so you wont be able to flash new roms using it (you will need the SDE method for that), but it will allow you to use superuser, titanium backup, setcpu, busybox etc. Plus you can use it to run custom scripts at boot to do things like disable adds, or change the location of the swap file to the SDcard so that you dont wear out your internal flash with it.
