    Nice Knowing You. I'm moved on to the other side.

    I just wonder how many former rooters have accepted the 2.1 OTA update and gave up rooting.

    I was bored on Monday so I unrooted just to see how the 2.1 ese81 OTA feels. It's slower (was running Smoked Glass with Adamz low voltage kernel at 800 mhz). But it is not bad. At first I was itching to go back to root but I made myslef a promise I would give it two days. I can now say that I am ready to leave it stock. I moved all my root tools over to my 7th home screen (Helix) so I don't see them anymore. No more temptations.

    I'll still pop into this forum from time to time. I really had a lot of fun with rooting and discussing all issues...noobs not following directions...how fast can you clock?...what is your bench test speed?...all those discussions were fun. And I may change my mind if I get bored again and just re-root. And who knows...maybe they will find a way to exploit 2.1 and give it a real root access. But for now I am going commando and it feels good to have air flowing between my (oh the graphic hurts).

    So...who else jumped out of the pool?

    Be prepared for dozens of posts saying that they will never go stock again. This is the hacks section though.

    OK. This doesn't make much sense but whatever. Why go to a slower, less customizable version? Have fun.

    I guess the obvious question is, why not opt for keeping root AND keeping all the software stock? I guess if you're not modding anything there's no point in being root - but there's also no point in NOT keeping root - there's an update.zip that exactly mirrors the OTA update, with the exception of not clobbering the recovery image or su binary.

    in Terminal Emulator, set this as your shell command: "/system/xbin/su -c /system/xbin/bash". You get all the features of bash, root access, and you can still use the initial command field for whatever you want (default is adding /data/local/bin to your path)

    I've gone over as well. I was on UD all the way from the first versions up to 8.x and rooted from DAY 1, now I'm stock and probably won't go back to rooted.

    I'm not going to give reasons though because that just opens my PERSONAL reasons up to ridicule and banal questioning from those that can't accept other people's reasoning.

    Tip for all of you that are tempted... Everyone has their own reasons for being rooted or unrooted. Please just let 'em be.

    Rooted 3 times, back to stock 3 times and 2.1 just does the job for me.

    First, I admit that the ROMs do some pretty cool things, they look good, etc. but I just want my Droid to run good, which it has since I first got it in November. It's suppose to be slower now, if it is I don't notice it. I've got a factory warranty again (and insurance).

    I'm just satisfied with it the way it is. I also think I'm just tired of screwing around with my phone all the time. When I had the Storm I was always installing this leaked release or that hybrid. And every time a new hybrid came out I'd try that so I was constantly screwing with my Blackberry. I don't feel I have to do that anymore.

    So it's 2.1 for me until the next update comes. And I believe there will be other updates.

    I have the same urge with my computer. I would stretch to make the analogy that stock = windows and rooted/customized = linux in terms of all the things it allows you to do AND all the many different ways you can screw things up.

    I've been running linux 100% since around 2000, but every once in awhile I get the urge to just install windows. It usually happens just after I spent like 4 hours trying to fix something that should just work and I think "you know, if I just had windows, I would turn on my laptop and it would just work".

    I still use linux because the things I want to do with my computer cannot be easily done in windows. The same goes for my phone.

    For the people that want to go back to stock - kudos to you. You won't have to spend a bajillion hours tweaking things and reading forums. The Android 2.1 update included a LOT of the things that I rooted to get, so there's a good chance you're pretty happy with it, too.

    I, on the other hand, am stuck in the rabbit hole. "Because I can" ends up being the reason for most of the things I tweak, and I only have myself to blame every time I break something :-P

    lol, that was my #1 reason. That, and reading through some of the support threads were becoming a huge pain as you had to filter through a million flame posts before getting to something constructive.
