http://androidforums.com/droid-all-things-root/18968-help-root-droid.html There are a lot of comments/threads referring to rooting so I am hesitant to add to that long list. My reason for going ahead with this submission is simply because rooting your phone for a first time user is nerve racking. You pay a lot of money for a phone that you expect great things out of. Then you hear about a process that COULD render your phone unusable, but COULD also unlock a world of added functionality. It's like that old game show "Let's Make a Deal"...dare you trade in your reasonable prize for a chance at a new car!?!?!...knowing full well that you could end up with a goat? For the risk takers out there, Android provides a cutting edge, constantly evolving realm of ROMs to flash, apps to install, and processors to overclock. For the risk averse, fortunately there is a dedicated community of users and developers willing to take the plunge, survey the new terrain, and provide you a detailed map to act as a guiding hand. Many work diligently and tirelessly to keep us abreast of this rapidly changing landscape and minimize our risk. These risks are magnified when manufacturers provide less flexibility in the form of locked bootloaders. To be told something is impossible, however, seems to only serve as motivation to a benevolent and determined android community. It truly is a community as you immediately feel connected to other users scouring the message boards for tips, advice, and a break from their normal lives. People are often supportive and reciprocation is abundant. Once helped by a member of the community you feel compelled to do the same for others as they come aboard. This thread is a testament to all of these things from the onset with one of the more notoriously difficult manufacturers (Motorola). Community members taking it upon themselves to get involved for the betterment of our user experience is one of Android's greatest assets. I owe a debt of gratitude to those who have helped pave the way for my enhanced enjoyment of this great operating system. I would like to win a bunch of stuff and continue that enjoyment. Please?
