    I know these questions may be answered in other areas and such but I've looked around some and would just like some plain answers. I'm looking to root my droid 2 and just wanted to make sure of some things.

    1) If I root my D2 am I going to have a blank phone after the process is complete, or will it still be the same phone (settings, contacts, home screens, apps, etc.) when it has finished rooting?

    2) Will verizon still be able to offer me support if something goes wrong? (I know if voids the warranty, but if I go into the store can they still help me with minor or possible major problems?)

    3) Is there any way to go back to factory settings? Like if something catastrophic does happen can I 'unroot' or at least make it look like the device has never been rooted?

    Thank you

    1. Yes, the phone just has more access and privileges now.
    2. No, but you can unroot.
    3. You can unroot and also SBF your phone back to stock like when you first got it!

    Thanks!
    What does SBF stand for?
