    Forgive my ignorance, but I'm about to try to root and add a custom rom, but I'm wondering - besides aesthetics and geek cred, is there any functional benefit to rooting and adding a custom rom? (on a Droid)

    I read somewhere that it could run a smoother 2.1 than the OTA, but haven't heard any verification of that. Thanks!

    There are a lot of threads already about the benefits of rooting. Just use the search function of the forums and you'll find plenty of threads.

    Yes performance with over clocking kernals. Also there are apps only made for root users. So, it isn't just about appearence.
