    I do it to add an ad blocker and to install Droidwall (Android firewall), two things that I consider essential. After that, rom changes are gravy.

    PS - and Titanium and MyBackup Root, oops, also essential. LoL

    I'm debating whether or not to get one of these to replace a rooted Samsung Moment that I use exclusively as a mobile hotspot through the hacked hotspot. Will rooting this device unlock the hotspot?

    As long as the ROM itself has it yes.

    TS;
    I rooted so I could remove a lot of bloatware.
    I have tryed other ROMs on my GS2 so in the future I my on my GN2.
    And to use programs that un-rooted will not let you, as stated earlier.

    Lateck,
