    I'm not sure... I think... somewhere...
    Here's what I think should happen: Google should post a way to root all Android phones. But, make it so that it can't be done with a malevolent intent. Manufacturers should stop trying to stop root. As we've seen before with the Droid Inc, the Droid X and 2, among many others. We find a barrier, we smash through it. Adding a chip won't stop us. We'll find a way around, or get a script that automatically roots it on start up. Sure, that method would disable custom roms, but it'd work in the meantime. Root is a right given to all Android users. Although some users shouldn't root.

    Umm, no. When you root, you make it harder for the manufacturer to support the phone.

    Then make it so that rooting still breaks the warranty.

    It already does break the warranty

    And if rooting was ridiculously easy, then it would be ridiculously easy for a piece of malware to gain root access to your phone. Do you want that too?

    I'm not saying make it easy. I'm saying don't try to stop them with methods that will only delay them for a month or so.
