If I were to root my DROID, it would initially be for one reason. This seems like a small thing, but to me it is huge. I hate that I can't reduce my screen's brightness below ten percent. At night, outside, or in low-light situations, it's fine. But in total darkness, it burns a hole in my eye. I use my DROID as a book reader, and when I'm in bed and the DROID is the only light in the room, it is blinding.
So, if I root my DROID, will I be able to change that?
That being said, if I do root my device, I will certainly take a note from an earlier thread and get rid of those pesky e-mail and corporate calendar apps, and will enjoy the rooty goodness in other ways as well, but if I can't do that, I probably won't root it.
Also, I saw some talk of this in an earlier post and wanted a little more info. I understand that rooting the DROID voids the warranty, but how do they tell? If my DROID breaks (not bricks) in such a way that I need to replace it, that pretty much means it's not possible to un-root it. If I can un-root it, it still functions well enough that I won't get rid of it.
I'm not trying to put one over on anybody (yet). I just want to make sure I'm safe. And if I'm not, I'd rather know about it in advance than get to the Verizon store and have my knuckles smacked unexpectedly.
