    rooting questions. Serious answers only!

    Droid noob here but I have been doing my research and I need just a few questions answers....

    1st If I decide to root, which I am looking seriously at doing, when froyo drops, and the offical update gets pushed to my phone what will that do to my phone? Will it override everything? Will I have to manually adjust things on that?
    2nd Which apps are a MUST once I root my phone, and I want the least the glitchy Rom I can get, and of course I want it to look good, and are most of the apps that I can download once I root paid? I have seen the overclock apps sells for like 3?
    3rd can someone again tell me the benefits or rooting, and I have never hacked anything, but I am looking at things and I am running vanilla Droid on 2.1 update 1 I have been looking things it doesnt look specifially that I can actually root that, if someone could provide me with the easiest step-by-step full proof rooting instructions that would be awesome.
    4th does anyone know anyone who has meesed up there phone by rooting? I am scared that I might brick the phone.

    1. Don't be scared about rooting, the rooting process is so easy now,
    2.get rom manager, this will solve all the headaches when flashing recovery, and also changing roms or downloading roms. Id suggest to buy rom manager so you can get many more roms to try because only certain roms are on the free section and the others are on premium seection
    3. Get MyBackUp Pro its good to to back up data; txt messeges, bookmarks, applications, and many other things
    4. The benefits of rooting is that you can get 2.2 update already on your phone, they are better tweaked than the stock version of 2.2 that verizon will release. Try themes on your phone that will look awesome, oveerclock your phone.

    To try to redeem myself...rooting also allows you to wireless tether, and you can remove bloatware.

    Thanks for the information but I still have two more questions...

    1 what will happen 2.2 gets pushed through to my phone?
    2 what is the best step by step tutorial that they have out there for root from 2.1 to something else?

    The developers of rom disable that option so you won't get the notification, also there is a thread called "sbf to root and unroot"

    Is this how all you guys get your 1 thousand post, posting crap and not helping?
