I've searched around on rooting and was wondering how safe it is. I'm on a DroidX with Android version 2.2.1
I saw a video for an app called Easy Root. The video made it look simple enough. I have no interest in flashing ROMs to my droid i just want to be able to do the wireless tether. I don't care to overclock or anything like that, just wireless tether. I was wondering how safe it is to root the phone.
Are there any rooting apps that a computer novice can use safely?
What are some suggestions?
Reading around i came across the term, "Bricking". not too sure what that is. What is Bricking and what does it do to your phone. From the sounds of it does not seem like something I want to happen to my Droid X.
If there are any tips or advice you could give me on rooting and whats the best app for a noob to use that would be awesome.
Reading around it seems you can unroot your phone if you have any troubles. What exactly does rooting do?
If i root my phone does it change the way it performs?
Any answers would be great and some links to more reading would be much appreciated as well.
Thanks. I want to keep my phone in good working order. I just don't see the point in paying for a phone, then paying for service, then paying more on top of it to use the 3G hotspot.
