    So I'm thinking about rooting my Droid 2 and I'm just curious about all of the advantages that there are to rooting.

    What are 5 good reasons to root a phone?

    Also, seeing as how rooting a phone voids the warranty, is there a way to restore the phone to factory settings once it has been rooted? I'm a noob about this and I just want to be knowledgeable about it before I go follow through on rooting.

    If you use Z4ROOT there'll be an option to UNROOT the phone. However, the best way to UNROOT is to SBF your phone back to STOCK in the event you needed to deal with VZW directly, that can be found here: TBH & MyDroidWorld Present: Droid 2 (2.3.20) Triple Threat


    Good Luck!
