According to verizon's devices, I would say the Dinc2 and the thunderbolt.

Usually HTC products are root friendly, provided they are not the ones with physical keyboards (desire z).

The above 2 devices can be rooted a couple different ways. Should also be custom Roms available.

Remember, the newer the model, the fewer custom roms.

Thanks!!

Usually, if it can be rooted, it can be rommed! Personally, any root is best using a 1 click app. Unless your friend is a technical person, I would avoid devices that you have to use the software dev kit to get root. Requires you to type in commands, which of course increases the risk of fubarring your device.

As always, read the instructions several times, until you fully understand them. Prep your system before starting. Make your backups BEFORE doing anything. And, it's extremely wise to know your device, and have a recovery method in place before you start. Know how to boot to the recovery menu!!

And as always, if you have an issue, look us up!! :D

This is not actually the case, so be weary. "Rooting" just means forcing the phone to grant you access to its root directory. This is definitely not the same as running custom ROMs because bootloader access must be attained to load the custom ROMs. Yes it is required that your phone be rooted to load custom ROMs but these two do not go hand-in-hand.

An example would be the newly released Bionic. It now has root access via AnyRoot, but the bootloader is still locked down. This means that you could run Apps that require root access such as a WiFi Tether App or Root Explorer, but you couldn't load up a brand new, let's say Stock GB, ROM onto the Bionic.

With that said, the phones that were suggested can have their bootloaders unlocked and can load custom ROMs to have a very malleable phone experience. I would also look into getting an OG Droid (maybe on the side as a second device) since they are VERY easy to root and unlock the bootloader and there are TONS of custom ROMs available for it. Might be a good start if this is the route you want to go and you could probably get one at a garage sale for like $20 or something nowadays lol.

The "bionic, is a new device, and as previously stated, things will eventually catch up to new devices. Including Root and Rom's and procedures required.

The OP (original poster) wished to know devices "tinker" friendly, I don't think the Bionic was mentioned as it's a totally new device to the states.

New developments for a new device.

Motorola Droid Bionic now has an unofficial CWM-Recovery available | Android Central

All things come in due time. So you Bionic users, your time is near :D:D:D
