    Hello all,
    I just leapt from my venerable old OG Droid to a sparkly new Bionic on Sunday. Since the phone is brand new I haven't rooted it yet. I did have one quick question for the folks who've already braved the SU trail however. :)

    Encryption... I was poking through menus and noticed that the Bionic supports encryption of System, SD, and/or SD-ext. (Settings -> Location & Security -> Data Encryption)
    Has anyone enabled any level of encryption on their Bionic and attempted root? I don't see any reason why rooting wouldn't work, but I'm not sure if CWR backup/recovery would be affected.
    Has anyone played with this feature in conjunction with root & recovery yet?
