I've known about rooting for awhile, i have the 1st Motorola Droid for Verizon. The main reason i want to root it is for the tethering app so i can make my phone into a hotspot. But i want to know if rooting will erase anything? Because for jailbreaking your ipod touch or iPhone you have to restore it. So is that the same with the Droid? Thats my main question, and the next is how do you do it? I need a very basic tutorial haha cuz i know nothing. and lastly, what else can you do with a rooted droid?
