Here I am saying "hi" too. I love my Android phone... a slightly out of date HTC Magic. My main interesting is making apps. I now have 4 in the market. Humm, not sure what else to say about myself. OK, I have a question. My phone is unlocked. But I have the urge to root it also. (I'd have to figured that out first.) There are a couple apps T-Mobile put on there that I'd like to remove (Amazon, FavFive(sp?)). And also it bugs me some times in the shell I get permission denied when I just try to "ls -l" a folder. But my question is... I want to keep the phone as close to what a regular person has for testing my apps so would rooting change that? Thx.
