i got this phone as the last free upgrade sprint will probably ever give away... i love it, its small its fun, ... but i dont know a damn thing about it... i have a friend who has the (gag i phone 4) he said the word jailbreak... didnt know what it meant, so i googled it... found out root is the same thing for android... here i am trying to hack my phone... apparently gingersnap is the only way and i'm not very savy... is there a good reason to do this before i proceed?

Welcome to AC! Congrats on your new phone. I would take some time to learn your phone before looking at rooting. After that the OptS forums is a great place to fine out all that you need to know about rooting and what to do after.
