    Roms can theme your phone in different ways check out the roms page and check some screen shots.. and just do some looks around..

    EDIT: chance of rooting is basically 0%

    cause i am told that 2.1 is th main reason why people are rooting
    2.1 is not the main reason people are rooting, or at least i hope not. There is so much more offered when you root. You can always run the 2.1 launcher with out rooting and perhaps this might be a better choice for you.

    While I am still sure it IS possible. I haven't seen or heard of anyone doing it, and I think with the SMUpdater, it makes the process even safer. Also, with the help of the forums, there are people that can usually get you out of jams that if you were alone you might not ever get yourself out of.

    I wonder when the term bricking will go away..

    Good Luck!

    What do you do with a phone that is bricked is there anything you can do like take it to the best buy and use the warranty (doubtful)...is there anything you can really do besides let it sit there bricked?

    lets say 0.001% unless you just root it and start deleting files out of the root.
    if you follow the guides on this site it would almost take an act of god to brick your droid.
