    Is this the FROYO I have been hearing about? Do I still need to root my phone to make it faster and better? Im sure this is a dumb question, but I am just new to my phone. Thanks for any replies.

    FROYO doesn't require rooting. You have it now...enjoy! ;)

    Rooting just provides "superuser" access so you can modify things on your phone that you normally can't. Don't worry too much about that right now.

    Just learn the basics for your phone and get familiar with android. When you find yourself saying "I just wish I could blah blah blah..., then you are probably talking about things that rooting your phone will allow you to change.

    Thanks! I wasnt too sure of what Froyo was. I noticed that my software version was Android 2.2. Didnt know both were tied together. I appreciate the replies. Hopefully I will learn a lot of things about my phone here.

    Yeah, but once this forum reels you in...you'll keep coming back...it's an addiction! :D

    Android versions are named alphabetically (started with "c" so don't really know what happened with a and b...) but here are the variants of the Google operating system:

    1.5 - Cupcake
    1.6 - Donut
    2.0-2.1 - Eclair
    2.2 - Froyo
    ?.? - Gingerbread
    ?.? - Honeycomb
    ?.? - Ice Cream

    Can't you tell they like desert?

    Seems like they also have a liking for tropical storms and hurricans as well.

    Each subsequent name starts with the next letter of the alphabet.
