    I bought my Motorola Droid as of yesterday
    So far it's nice, but, I am hearing about the process of rooting the phone
    I would like to try this, but as a former apple user, jailbreaking seems much more simpler

    I've also noticed the fact of bricking your device - Which scares me :(
    I know there are ways to fix it, so I'm okay with that


    So,
    Is Froyo just a download or is it something much more complicated? :confused:

    There's no fixing a brick. Some people throw that term around, and they really shouldn't use it. I have yet to hear of anyone bricking a DROID when trying to root it.

    Then again ... maybe an ex-iPhone user would be the first. :D

    I just don't want to do something dumb
    The thread telling you how to root has suspended download pages :confused:

    I almost spit up the Gatorade I was drinking trying not to laugh at that last part.
    But don't worry, you'll be ok, just take your time and read up on rooting before you jump into it.
