    Ok, so I have decided to finally root my phone but am still running the unofficial 2.2. If I use the one click rooting method, will this brick my phone or cause any issues?

    I didn't see anything on this so just want to make sure

    lol thanks! I came from the iPhone and jailbroke it all the time. I was amazed at what the phone was capable of doing but wasn't "allowed" to do.

    My DX definitely is leaps and bounds beyond that as-is....I just love a lot of the new looks and implementations you can create using root. Looking at the "what do your screens look like?" thread made me wanna root it all the time :)

    Ok I keep trying to root and everything seems to be just fine (I have all the right drivers, I am connected, I'm in USB debugging, etc....but when I'm told to toggle bluetooth, it keeps saying the root failed....any suggestions?
