Are you rooted, Not rooted, or not sure?

Say it here, and why for your choice.







I am just very intrigued by the rooting thing, so I thought this might be neat.

Rooted. Have been using the Sholes/DroidMod roms for quite a while. The latest and greatest have been nothing but smooth and stable on my phone. Agree with others, the ease of rooting with DMUpdater is almost too easy compared to the first method I used to root.

Rooted but nothing else for now. I reverted back because I liked the appearance of the stock feel, now that its worked into other ROM's I may take em for a spin.

Agreed. You can root your phone in like 3 screeen presses, and 2 minutes. It's so easy, there's no reason not to anymore. unless you're 100% happy with the stock os (which really isn't bad) then you might not want to. Even if you dont overclock, the pinch zoom, wifi tether, 3d gallery, etc. make buying/using the app totally worth it.

Is that app back in the market?

Rooted. Mostly to run apps that require root, such as the app "LED Hacks" to turn off the four button lights at bottom while my phone is docked at night. The lights would pretty much light up half the room!

You can probably pick it up at DroidMod...

BTW, not rooted (yet). For some reason, I have been waiting for the 2.1 update before rooting.

Then you'll just have to wait for 2.1 to be rooted.

Right. The only reason we CAN root now is because 2.0.1 was rooted. Rooting is OS version specific. It's like every time they update the iphone software, they have to wait for a new jailbreak version to come out.

I'd loooove to root IF I could. My Droid is stubborn and wont let me. I even had a friend of mine who has his rooted and he still couldnt get it to work. My phones just unrootable I guess :(

I have to wait for 2.1 OTA from Verizon and its taking friggin forever. Really dissapointing me in the terrible service droids are getting now that the N1 is out. Its like the Droid was put on the way way way backburner now :( Bullsh!t really.

Its awesome. I'm carrying around Ultimate Droid and a 2.0 lockscreen, and showing off (a little too much, unfortunately).
