    Hoping someone could help me out on a couple of questions about rooting my DROID.

    First of all if I root, can I go back? I am well aware of the benefits of rooting the phone, but not so sure about the drawbacks. At this point I don't care about flashing a new ROM or anything like that, pretty basic stuff. However, this is my only phone, I don't have insurance on it, but I do have a warranty I would rather not void. At what point is my warranty void if I root, and can it be undone so that I could return the phone under warranty if I need to?

    Second question is a bit more technical. I am developing a theme for a popular home screen replacement. After speaking with the dev he told me I could pull the apk from my phone and place it on the emulator. (I am aware that doing this could be considered piracy if I were to distribute the app, but for development its legal.) I need to check for errors on other versions of android, hence the need to have the app on the emulator so I can apply it.

    When I try to pull the app with adb it gives me an error that I do not have permission. Would rooting give me the permission to do this?

    Any help would be appreciated.
