I went from HTC hero to palm pre (hated the hero) and missed android so much I came back with a moment. I just got it on my b-day, June 25th, and then about 2 weeks or more later I find out it's not going to be updated anymore! I think I am up for an upgrade in Jan, so we still have a way to go before I can even consider getting a new phone (with the upgrade), DH would kill me as he was the one who bought this one for me, from CL for my bday. I was going to attempt to root my phone, because, really I don't care about having a newer phone just to have one, I like the moment so far. Rooting scares me TBH, lol. I'm afraid I'll brick my phone and then be out of a phone, period. BUT...I will do it, when I need to, so when does everyone think I'll need to? I've seen some apps upgraded for 2.2, but they still work on 2.1, is it just NEW apps that I have to worry about? Apps that are created for 2.2 and above? I'm a bit confused. I guess I don't understand much about rooting other than you can customize things and delete the stock apps from your pone. Can you still access the market? Download apps that are for non-rooted phones? etc. Sorry, I know I'm dumb when it comes to this subject, lol.
