    I've had my Droid since it came out,but have never understood this whole "rooting" thing.

    What are the pro's/cons of rooting my Droid?
    Are ROM's free?Are they easy to install?
    Will this crash my phone in any way?
    Can I unroot it if it causes problems?

    Please help me out.
    Im debating if I should root my Droid or not.

    Thanks a lot.

    My heart was beating a million times a minute as I rooted and ROMmed. But I will never look back, and cannot even imagine life without my rooted Droid. So much FREEDOM!

    rooting is great and this is coming from someone who, like yourself, had a lot of questions and was nervous about doing it. You dont have to take my word for it but i promise its easier to do than it even looks ;)
