    Root your Droid and go to jail ???????

    OK, Gotta share.

    A few weeks ago I rooted and installed a nice custom ROM that I like. Our company IT mgr is a Droid guy as is one of my co-workers at our corporate office.

    While visiting with my co-worker Droid user I shoed him my FROYO equipped Droid. He said "got to have, it's so fast and it sure looks sweet".

    My response was to check it out with the IT guy as he saw it on mine and really liked it as well. Maybe he will help you.

    The IT guy says "no way, I'm not even thinking about that. They put people in jail for that stuff".

    Please comment :-).

    There is nothing to comment on, I guarantee not a single one of us will ever go to jail for rooting our phones.
    Anytime someone dares me to walk a mile in their shoes I do it! Because, hey free shoes and I am now a mile away from that person!

    Hatred is by far the ugliest trait any human can possess (think about it)

    Proof you can be a complete idiot and still work in IT... with that said if the phones are 'company' phones the company can discipline you according to their policies which may include termination... of course this would entail the idiots in your IT department being able to catch you doing it...
    You are right to be wary. There is much bullcrap. Be wary of me too, because I may be wrong. Make up your own mind after you evaluate all the evidence and the logic. - Mark Rippetoe

    I completely understand what your IT guy was saying. A few months ago I went to a bakery and bought some cake. When I got home I decided I wanted chocolate frosting instead of the buttercream that came on it, so I put my own chocolate frosting on it. Cops busted down my door and I was off to the slammer!!

    Seriously dude, if you bought it, it's YOURS! while there are some things that you can put on it that will land you in jail, a custom ROM ain't one of them. so go ahead put on a ROM, put on an old copy of Windows ME whatever makes you feel good.
