questions about rooting
Okay so I really wanna get the most out of customizing my droid so I have a couple ?'s. First is rooting illegal like hacking where if I have a problem and take it to verizon they won't touch it cause its rooted? And if not then what can I do with a rooted droid that I can't with a non rooted droid? Also does rooting cause any problems with the phone? And finally how do I root a droid? I really appreciate any help anyone can give me.
No, rooting is not illegal, but it does theoretically void your warranty. However, if you need to return your phone and put it back to stock there is no way for Verizon to know it was previously rooted. This should answer some of your other questions. Visit the Hacks forum for much more info.
Start with the Hacking/Modding section and read the guides, FAQ's etc. You really need to be able to seek answers on your own if you are interested in rooting, IMO. That said, there are plenty here that are willing to help if you have questions or get stuck.
