    Hi there,

    Im a complete noob to anything other than Apple products. I understand what root is when talking about a Unix/Linux system, but don't quite understand what it is in regards to my Evo.

    What exactly is rooting, and what are the pros/cons of doing it? If anyone has any links to intelligible information about it that would be greatly appreciated.

    I look forward to hearing from someone =)
