Admittedly not such a troubled question as to question my existence but it is something I wonder about. Given the relative quietness in the xe section compared to my last phone (desire) I thought is try and open up some discussion. I didn't root my desire, although came close and had I been locked into a 24 month contact,I probably would have done. But this is the thing, the sole reason I would have done would have been to solve the low space warning. However,this issue isn't so relevant now with the xe. So the question would be, what is the payoff for losing warranty? I understand some people just enjoy playing and tinkering with the bare bones, but hobbyists aside, what are the actual benefits for a standard user? I've heard people talk about super user, and more app access. But what are these apps I'm missing out on? What does this super user access allow me to do? I do understand why some people want to root, in the same way some people would enjoy taking an car engine apart to is smallest parts, and then to put it back together, or some one else would enjoy buying clothes, cutting them up, and then remaking them into something very different. I have huge respect for anyone finding enjoyment and happiness in whatever they do. Is rooting therefore just something for people who find pleasue in this level of tinkering, or is there a place for an average user to investigate further into this process to really make a difference and improvement to their phone. Opinions anyone?
