    Ok, being that this is my 1st ever Android Device, I've never messed with rooting etc.

    I am just curious if being rooted can hurt, if you don't do anything special beside use a Screenshot App?

    Being a beginner I don't want to mess with anything until a SBF is available etc. I'd just like to use a Screenshot App.

    Now with that said, if I don't do anything I would normally not do, and only Root it for a Screenshot App, could I run into problems like mess anything up?

    As long as you don't delete or modify system apps, you should be fine. I am rooted and have frozen a couple of apps with no badness. That said, if you are really concerned about it, then wait until there is an SBF file and/or Clockwork Recovery procedure to get you back to your original state.

    I don't know of anyone who has done rooting and regretted it ;)

    Rooting doesn't hurt it, its what you can do after. once we have sbf files at that point it can save u if you mess up
