    What is rooting?

    What exactly is rooting a droid? I just got mine and I'm curious. Is it like jail breaking an ipod? Please give me all the information you know!

    Its gaining administrative privileges on the device.
    Like the admin profile on your computer.

    That's sounds cool! Does verizon allow it? And also what exactly DOES it do?

    It may void your warranty with verizon, but there are many ways to unroot your device and make it stock again. There are people much more qualified than myself to tell You the nuts and bolts of What it actually does.

    Being new to the awesomeness that is the Droid I would like to know WHY a person would root a Droid. Is it like climbing a mountain to say you did? Does it move faster, stronger, longer?

    I'm serious why root your Droid?

    I don't exactly plan on rooting it right this very minute-maybe after I've had it for a while I will. Im just looking into it right now
