    Hi,

    I am thinking about rooting my Desire. I have these questions if anyone could answer.

    1. Is it difficult to root the phone? I know there are guides all over the place - but for a regular Joe, is it difficult?

    2. If I root the phone doe is zero out everything on it? Do I have to install all tha apps again and themes?

    3. Do I get any improvements if I root. I am doing this to be able to buy Market Apps which is currently not available in my country (Iceland).

    4. Is there anything that says I should not do this? A change to harm or f*** up the phone?

    Cheers all!

    Hi, It's not difficult.....just make sure you follow the appropriate guide (depending on hboot & screen type) word for word.

    Rooting will wipe everything from your phone......apps & data

    There are loads of reasons to root...... applications such as setcpu and titanium backup.... and being able to try loads of custom roms are a few

    There's always a chance I guess.... and you will invalidate any warranty you have. having said that the rooting process is pretty stable now. recommend you use unrevoked 3

    Rooting the phone won't wipe everything off it. What wipes it is installing the new Rom...
