Root is a part of Android, Google doesn't have a problem with it, pretty much every employee at Verizon has a rooted phone, so why is it such a big deal and why do they keep trying to block it. Yes I understand it can be bad for the phone and it ruins your warranty but why cant they just make life easy and give us the option to agree on termination of warranty if we click "Root my phone" button. I really don't get why its not an option, beside from the fact that some companies can lose money with things like tethering. I still believe it should be an option inside the Android OS to unlock root without having to "hack" it. Any other opinions?
