    Hey guys,

    Basically I'm getting a desire this weekend and have read a lot about rooting. I was wondering whether it would be worth it to root it as soon as I get it before getting into complications or should I leave it as is knowing that an update will be coming soon? Could anyone list any main reasons why I should or shouldn't? If possible don't list reasons that will come in the 2.2 Froyo update, such as apps2sd or tethering.

    Thanks!

    I quote from the first lines of that thread

    ;)

    So that's basicly it. Rooting gives you apps2sd. That's the main raison why someone roots his desire.

    Alright. I know that much. Is there any other advantage as I know apps2sd is coming in froyo so if apps2sd is the only reason to root then I'd rather wait.

    i am in the same positions

    why i dont want to root:
    loose warranty
    2.2 coming out soon
    dont have a spare sd card to make a gold card

    why i want to root:
    Get custom roms... modaco etc....but then again 2.2 is coming


    i cam to the conclusion that i should just wait for 2.2, voiding my warranty is not good :S and other than apps2sd and the ability to isntall custom roms there are not other main advantages to rooting. IMO

    I'm not 100% sure you lose the warranty. I've heard you can flash back to stock and HTC would be none the wiser should you need to send the phone back. Don't quote me on that, I just think I've read it somewhere, probably over at MoDaCo.
