    Question is simple :)

    it's been 3 months since the Droid was released. and 2 months since root access was established. so just wondering where people are today.

    Give the thread a bump for good measure. interested to see the results of the entire DF.net community

    +1 for not rooted. I'm kinda surprised the vote is even this close though. I'm betting by days end it will be closer to 3 to1 rooted to not rooted. We may be the minority, but we're still here!

    Rooted and loven it.

    i was scared to root at first but figured i have the black tie warranty at best buy so if i bricked it i just run it over with the truck and bring in pieces and get a new phone.

    I'm not rooted, but I have thought about it... I think the results of this poll will surprise folks, honestly... Many of the folks who visit this site are tech-savvy (certainly, you do get non-tech-savvy folks here who need help, for sure) but the average person who's going to respond to this poll is probably not totally afraid of rooting their phone. I'm thinking the unrooted-to-rooted ratio might be as little as 2:1 when it's all over. Maybe even less, perhaps?

    Rooted. I was very happy with it stock. Just wanted to play around with it rooted. Can say that after root I don't care to go back to stock. Like my tether and OC. Just use to it rooted now. With the new ROMS that are out there it is really easy now. Either Sholes or BB you really cant mess it up. But if for some reason root was taken away I would be very happy with the phone in stock form.

    I'm not rooted yet because what comes after rooting seems a little complicated. I'm talking about adding Psychos back up method. Going to the command prompt and adding all that text. I've looked at the directions and so many people have issues after doing it I'm just not comfortable. I've spent 4 hours tonight researching how do root and adding a rom and still haven't found a guide for installing a rom...seriously. I know there here somewhere because I've seen them in the past. I've read so much tonight it's making me sleepy. lol

    Not everyone who is rooting their phone is tech-savvy. I wish everyone who rooted was actually technically inclined, at least to read how to do it correctly =\

    Rooted, then stock, then rooted again. Rom's are getting better every day. Doubt I'll go back.
