Don't get me wrong, I rooted my Droid the first day it was available. But lately I've been thinking about this. I'm really not that upset about it. Sure I'd like to have free wifi tether as much as the next guy and I'd really like to remove the preinstalled apps.
It sort of reminds me of the old car modding days. I'd throw a big turbo on my car and then had to limp it to the tuner. Sure, afterwards it was awesome but every little hiccup made me blame that big turbo (20g for you car guys). Now I drive a completely stock car and rarely miss the days where I had to pull over and readjust FMIC couplings.
It's kind of like the ROMs that we run now on our Droids. Sure they score awesome linpack and quadrant scores but every once in a while I'll run into a snag and wish I just had an OEM state phone that was strong enough to do what my OCd Droid could. And the X seems to be just that.
I rooted my Incredible (right at the beginning of its root days) and found myself a little perplexed as to why I'd spent so many hours to get through the process.
Am I the only one that just really won't be too upset if we don't get full root access?
