    Thinking about Rooting, what are some advantages?

    I am thinking about rooting my droid incredible. I want to be able to use the wifi tether for free. I know some of the custom roms can do that but what else can they do? Which rom is best?

    I am new to this and am not sure where to begin but I should be able to figure it out. I am good with computers and even JTAG hacked an xbox 360.

    Thanks for all the info. I have rooted it. I haven't been able to find one good guide on how to install roms. Is it really as simple as clearing the data and factory resiting in clockworkmod recovery, then install zip form SD card? All after making a backup of course. I have read things about people using certain kernels with certain ROMs, the ROMs include the appropriate kernel don't they?

    Ultimate Droid 3.1.1 is pretty wicked. I'm getting about 24hrs of battery life per single charge with it. Plus its insane fast. Def worth checking out.

    24 hours! I'm at 10% and it hasn't even been 12 hours yet. I will have to try that. But what about the question I asked above?
