    Droid 2 Global
    I have a Droid 2 Global (D2G), my very 1st Android phone. I got it about 2 months ago.

    At first, I was just fine using it the way it came. Having to kill off apps all the time because I tend to hate seeing my available RAM go below 10% and it always keeps going below that. Even when I've just force-closed all the running apps, my available RAM never got above 30%.

    At the suggestion of some posts here, I tried freezing the VZ apps and was OK with the results for a couple of days but I still had to kill off apps from time to time. Still too often for comfort, though.

    Finally, I decided that I want to root my phone and install a ROM. With a lot of effort and loads of luck, I was able to root my phone. A lot of effort because I, in my immense noobness accepted the 629 update which made rooting almost impossible back then. After a couple of days, luck struck and I found a post pointing to some guy's root method that works on 629.

    I'm currently running the latest D2G CM9 unofficial build by 13thAngel.

    Minor functionality frustrations aside, I'm really happy I decided to root my phone.

    I've never had to kill off apps using Task Manager apps anymore.


    Oh, I forgot. Nope, I don't have TB Pro. I'm using the free version. Poor me.

    Did it because I could. Each device was rooted within 5 minutes of owning and being near a computer - D1, DX, Bionic, Gnex, and the latest has been Rezound. Also same went for the HP Touchpad...I bought that just to use as an Android tab, so mostly all of this has been just because I can.

    I root my devices so I can have as much control over them as possible and being able to back up apps and transfer them to keep game progress on all devices is great!

    The main reason I root my phones is so I can have max control and customization over my phone. I love being able to get rid of the bloatware, as well. And I get to meet interesting people on Android forums like this one! Oh, and because Android is AWESOME!!!!!

    I root because it allows me to do whatever I want to my device.

    Enter Current Phone Model Here
    I root b/c it allows me to remove bloatware that came preinstalled with my phone (yes i have a nexus but there were some apps i didn't use ex: google+), install root-required apps (such as titanium backup FREE version, setcpu, adfree), and flashing ROMs/kernels.

    I didn't root (almost 2 years) because this is my primary communication device, and I expect it to do some basic things like proper backups, screenshots,etc. without hacking the phone, and I will bug the Carrier for those basic features.
    If I root, I will not be able to use Good for Enterprise, because the sysadmins consider that a compromised device to connect to their corporate network.
    I do have a ICS 4.0.3 WiFi Tablet that I might root pretty soon...

    I root mainly for real backups using titanium, custom roms and recoveries, along with ad blocking. I used to use it for screenshots and wifi tethering.
