Hello,
I am new to the android and HTC world. I am a little confused on the need to "root" my phone. Is it worth it? Im sorry if this has been posted/asked before. Once I root my phone, would I be able to download apps that are coded for 1.6 or higher?

Thanks

you don't need to root it, I did so so I could run a custom rom which runs much faster than the stock one, i'm also liking wireless tethering app for root users, but you can do mostly the same thing with pdanet, just have to plug the phone into your computer. couple of nice programs you have to be rooted to have, the add free one is great, dosen't load most of the ad's you'll find while browsing the net.
