    Plus the ability to remove pesky programs like amazon and VVM is incredibly useful.
    They didn't actually call it worthless, they asked for reasons why it's not. Don't be testy, they're not talking about your mom.

    Sounds like you have a sound plan. Figure out how to undo what you are thinking of doing first. If you do decide to root you'll do so in a more knowledgeable state than some others. Although, panicking at 2am is always fun too

    If you apply a rom or theme - backup first!
    If you don't know how to backup...Stop until you do.
    hint: I name my backups like this: sg6.0_20100428 or ss4.2_20100626 to easily find them later. rom and date.

    the way i look at it is by analogizing to buying a house. you have a piece of land, with a house already built on it. you can maybe build an addition, paint, put in new fixtures, etc, but you are essentially limited to working with the house that came with the land (i.e., the stock Droid given to you by VZW). but, if you tear down the house, the land is open for you to do as you please. and, if you use a young, kick a**, free thinking architect, you could end up with something that you REALLY enjoy!!

    that's basically what these guys have done with hacking and providing custom roms.
