    I'm a bit hesitant to go to a domain named "Lifehacker." Care to elaborate on what exactly it is before I click the link? Is it just a poll of who's rooted and who's not?

    Lifehacker is a productivity/random tips website. It's perfectly legit.

    Lifehacker is a member of the Gawker media network, just like Gizmodo or Kotaku. It's all about giving tips for "hacking" your "life" to make it more efficient, cheaper, etc.

    Here is why I rooted..
    Drocap
    Incredilight
    Wireless tether
    All apps that should be on the market for non root users. But o well
    I am a complete novice and was able to use the unr3voked 3.0 with one click and that useful thread.

    Another Lifehacker fan here. I get daily emails from them. Some pretty interesting stuff. Not much different than reading Popular Science.

    Yep. I rooted mine! Only took a few minutes and it's a done deal (once I got a fast enough SD card... 16GB Adata)

    I wanted to remove all of Verizon's "Bloat-ware" like CityID that kept bugging me.
    Now I have a nice, clean phone and the battery last a LOT longer!
