    probably the coolest thing for me is the screenshots, free wireless tether, and just a faster phone...

    Honestly being rooted is cool but nothing that I have done has jumped out at me as OMG.

    I am still on the 8-1 New Leak rom and I just enjoy customizing it the way I want. Removed over 30 apps/widgets/bloatware, disabled the included flash player in favor of a version that would play Hulu, obviously the root related apps (Root Explorer, Adfree, Wireless tether) are all cool. And believe it or not you get an added extra sense (no pun intended) of security being rooted and knowing you have a Nandroid or Titanium Backup available to you to save your ass.

    For me it was LEDs Hack (turn off LEDs while watching a movie or reading / gaming), Wifi Tether, and Froyo.

    Then just showing people on other Android phones that I already had Froyo was nice, lol..

    I'm not necessarily about one-upmanship but here goes...

    A buddy of mine has a GF that has an iPhone, and she is always talking it up. He just rolls a little flip phone and doesn't like the iPhone because she is always slamming his.

    They were at my shop the other day and he needed to access internet on his laptop... I whipped out the good 'ole wireless tether and he was rolling in seconds.

    He turned and asked her if her iPhone could do that, and no it couldn't... and he said to her, "Wow, Droid DOES!"

    I had to laugh... LOL :)

    She's not that hardcore... and the point was he was using it to get a dig in on her since she was slamming his phone all the time ;-) I just thought it was funny.

    If you're rooted, just download LEDs Hack from the Market.

    Well it's easy removing and disabling apps so I just did that with the included flash player and than used a version floating around here that works with Hulu.

    The coolest thing I've done so far was something I did today.

    I was developing an android application from work via Remote Desktop to my home PC, while actively debugging it via ADB over the internets.

    adbWireless 1.0 - Android app on AppBrain

    I really like the flashlight app! I also use wifi tether for my iPad. Screen shots too, and why that needs root is just a total fail!

    Inside the 2.5.2 Rom package under SDcard folder there's a install_huluflash_player.apk that will work with Hulu app...enjoy!

    Wiimote connect + NESoid, SNESoid, Gensoid = the best reason to have root.
