Re: Root Rezound
If getting rid of bloatware and all that VZ crap isn't reason enough then I don't know what is? I mean, a fricken golf game? Not a golf fan!! NFL Live app? I don't even watch football!!

Another pro is being able to make complete backup's of you entire system. Can't do that with unrooting. Also, in a weird way, it's satisfying and enjoyable.
Con's...well there's the warranty thing if you're into that. Some ROMs can be buggy so be careful what you load onto your phone, that's the price you pay for being on the cutting edge (though a ROM based on an OS that was released months ago isn't really that cutting edge anymore).
As you'll find out, there really isn't much you can do to this thing to brick it. You may get into a tight spot but there's always a way back.
You could root, see if it's for you and if not you could still go back to unrooted though that may leave the dreaded "Tampered" label on your bootloader but honestly, who looks at that?
