    ya i was contemplating on root now or waiting for the OTA update but I didnt have the patience so I rooted with clockwork mod recovery with voodoo which increase the performance drastically. In other words rooting gives u freedom to access to your system customizing different areas of it such as themes, boot up animations, getting rid of bloatware and the list goes on.

    go into the development portion if this thread and you will find a great, great how to posts. Its simple once you get all the toys. You never get the meaning of a book by listening in on a conversation for 30 seconds.

    Rooting/flashing can get you into alot of trouble if you dont know what your doing... i suggest reading the forums for like a month, then decide. And is your friend really gonna charge you $10? It takes like five minutes

    I've been reading up on the development part of this forum and was planning on following the directions to root to super clean EB01 2.1 with froyo and clockwork mod.the directions are pretty clear and I'm up to it.

    Are there any main differences like performance or something between the two? Sorry I'm new to all this.
