    You can use z4root in the marketplace, its one click and i've heard good things.

    As for what you can do with root, there are a lot of possibilities. First you can get root apps like wireless tether or screen capture, then you can over/under clock the cpu. You can also flash custom roms and themes and boot animations.

    Best two benefits of a rooted D2... titanium backup freezing of apps and using bootstrap recovery to boot into recovery and create/load nandroid backups.
