    I'm planning to buy a Droid and plan to root it, mainly for the tethering. From what I'm reading it seems like everyone who roots installs a custom ROM, but I'd like to keep the stock user experience, just with tethering added on, for now at least. Is this going to be a problem? Sorry if this is a n00b question, but I've had trouble finding a comprehensive source of info on Android rooting.

    There are ways to have root and still keep a stock experience. That's very easy in fact. You'll just have to wait until someone roots the Droid and you'll be all set.

    Awesome, thanks! Any guess as to how long before the Droid is rooted?

    Is there a way to ROOT the HTC Hero but keep the default ROM until HTC release 2.0 ?

    I'd like to use a file manager and have been told I need to ROOT the Hero in order to gain access to files etc Also use Task manager and install apps to SD card.

    I would be very grateful if someone could help me with this issue.

    Many thanks.
