Hi, Sorry if this is a dumb question but just need to get an idea of why and if I need to root my HTC Desire. Why do I need to root my phone, what's the benefit. I just recently updated it with a download of the HTC Froyo ROM. I've been reading a lot on rooting the phone and most have certain requirements on the version of the HBOOT being version 0.80 or lower. Mine is currently at 0.92.0001 and I can't find a guide that says I can do it for this version. Also I have different values in the software versions. Android Version 2.2 Baseband Version 32.43.00.32U_5.09.00.20 Kernel Version 188.8.131.52-gf9c0527 htc-kernel@and18-2 #1 Build number 2.09.405.8 CL218634 release-keys Software number 2.09.405.8 Browser version Webkit 3.1 Any help or advice would be apprciated.
