    Rooting my Bionic??

    Ok its embarrassing just to post this, but i have been reading through posts and people talk about rooting a phone? What does that mean? should i do that or just leave it alone? And are there any other helpful "hacks" i guess you would say that i should try? ((:

    It's simply a hack that gives you access and control over all of the files on your phone including all the Operating System files. Let's you do things like remove/freeze bloatware, install custom roms, themes, etc. All this does of course come with some risks. You can make changes that can have a very adverse effect on your phone. There are however files that can be installed to return your phone to original condition from your computer.

    No. YOU should not root your phone. Not if you are asking these questions. Read/learn/search/investigate and then and only then with full understanding of risks/rewards then make an informed decision.
