    I want to know how to root, how to un-root, if there are any glitches with rooting, and things like that.

    EDIT:: I saw the links how to root, what I need to know is if there are glitches after rooting. I heard of some before.

    It is seriously the third sticky down. I believe it is titled "How to get Root Access after the 2.1 update"

    edit x2: I really dont mean to be a dick, but it is hard for me to recommend rooting to somebody who can't be bothered to search for and read the links that are posted at the top of the forum. Or even google something like "how to root 2.1 droid."

    Then you probably aren't looking hard enough..
    There's a button up there between "New Posts" and "FAQ".. Pretty helpful to me.

    I sometimes am helpful to this, but now-a-days there are at least 10 new threads like this added each day. It's wasting internet space...

    I did see the links but I've heard about many problems with rooting and people have glitches where WiFi doesn't work, Text Messages won't send, etc.

    If you follow the instructions and don't try to go Rambo your first time doing it, you should be just fine..

    Trust me, you are going to encounter countless issues at first. Yes you are probably going to have wifi not work, but you'll learn to flash a kernel and fix it. Yes, your going to probably try to install something and get stuck in a boot loop without previously making a nandroid backup, but you'll learn. It's all a learning process. Search the forums for all your issues and solve them. You really can't destroy your phone... so don't worry...

    What he said. But there is always the risk of something happening. Usually the threads that deal with how to root will lay those risks out and how to avoid them. The best way to avoid any major problems though is to educate yourself so when something does go wrong (and something will go wrong) you have the knowledge to fix it.
