I see a LOT of disappointment with the 2.2 push; Problems with battery charge longevity, quirks, and especially general "It ain't all it's cracked up to be"ness... Well what did you all think was gonna happen? Some of you refuse to root, and I just don't get the reasoning. Because I run a custom ROM, it's easy for me to understand the frustration many of you have after waiting for a very (very) bland update while developers have been offering unbelievably cutomizable ROMs that look and feel like SuperROMs by comparison. This is history repeating itself in our little cybersphere here. Just look at the same titles regarding the 2.1 update. Same disappointments, same broken anticipations. Surely by now most of you that have not rooted have to see that rooting itself has been proved to be safe. Installing ROMs or even just themes to accentuate the stocker is VERY satisfying, both to accomplish (even though it really is not as hard and scary as it initially seems) and as a finished result. It may be dauntingly intimidating at first, but once you do it, it's fantastic. You don't have to keep up with the Jones' here. There's no reason you have to keep flashing the latest & greatest ROM. Even a very basic early release ROM will have more to offer you as an end user than the stock update. emverham did such a great, simple to follow write up. http://androidforums.com/all-things-root-droid/150660-howto-my-guide-rooting-romming-beginner.html I'm not a ROM whore by any means. I've done some hacking in the past on other phones and Canon cameras (mostly just following instructions) but I was still concerned about bricking my new phone. I don't flash a lot of new stuff every time something is released. I love technogadgets, and my Droid is my bestest toy ever, lol, so I would never suggest anyone risk detriment to their own. But for less than five bucks you can upgrade your phone to total kick-assness! Anyway, I've seen a few "2.2 is killing my battery, *$%#!" posts, so I figure I would even suggest rooting if only to allow you to install SetCPU, the CPU clocking app. It's harmless because without installing a special kernel your CPU won't over clock, but SetCPU will allow it to underclock when the phone is just relaxing. This greatly improves battery life.
