Hello Guys ( and Gals ), I am new to the forum and I know all about the "search feature". I have been browsing for days now and while I am certain I can "Root" my new droid phone I am still left with the desire to have someone " IN THE KNOW" explain to me why I might want to do it. Now I understand that having "root" means you have complete access to your phone like you would as an ADMIN in your computer and so on but I am left with wanting to know these specific questions. I am sure others do also but since the topics can go all over the place I figured I would ask them here and just maybe ( my fingers are crossed ) someone in the "KNOW" will be able to answer them. 1.) I understand that my "NEW" Droid is limited to 256MB of space for APPS on the phone. I have always been a person who hates limitations and if I want a CRAP load of APPS....I want to only be limited by the storage card I choose to install so I have this question..... Q: If you "ROOT" your Droid does that mean that when I download an APP from the Android Market, I can download it straight to the 16GB Storage Card "SD" versus keeping it on the phones storage itself? 2.) If you "ROOT" your phone while it has the software 2.0.1 installed, when the update 2.1 comes out...will it OTA update? If not, what would you have to do in order to get it back to the state where it will OTA update? 3.) I was in the local "Verizon" store and playing around with "their" droid I was able to get it to the Triangle and Reboot area so doing the actual "root" does not bother me and I don't worry about the "bricking" the phone issue.....I do worry about how to "UN-ROOT" the phone when needed just as easy as it was to ROOT it......is it JUST as easy? 4.) How come someone has not made an APP that has a ROOT and UN-ROOT button on it? 5.) I do tire or reading all the posts about " When will the 2.1 be coming out" since the only people who know that is Motorola....BUT what would be nice to know is that when 2.1 does arrive......those who have rooted the phones with 2.0.1 will easily be able to get the update either OTA or by simply un-installing the ROM that was added called "update.zip" and put the phone back to it's out of the BOX state....then get the OTA update....is this actually possible? Thanks guys (and gals ) or understanding. I am a NEWBIE but reading everything is quite confusing...I would love to "overclock" the Droid and have it faster.....thats a plus...my main concern is the 256MB limited APP space on the phone itself.....I would like to have 16GB of APPS if I so choose....does that make sense????
