New to rooting but fed up with non-control. Trying to get some opinions here on whether rooting is worth the risk I ran across a forum discussing a brand new OTA update that breaks z4root for some people using Droid X. I'm not sure if that includes Droid 2 though.
PROS (or control I want to have)
-Get rid of non-uninstallable, immortal software that won't die and check for updates as they please
*Use certain applications that require rooting like firewall, antivirus
*Linux terminal access
*Disable OTA OS updates and only run them manually when I say it's okay for them to run.
CONS (or control I don't want to lose)
*Unable to revert back to out-of-box state of the OS
*Unable to use my phone anymore (turn it into a "brick"?)
*Unable to get updates at all
*More privacy/security because I have root password or less security
because the phone is in fact rooted?
