    Hello, my name is Dave and I'm addicted to droid.
    (Oh wait... this isnt droid addicts annonymous :D lol)

    I have the Droid DNA with Verizon and have been using and enjoying droid since the Motorola Droid 1.
    I have had 4 now Including my DNA. I love it. best phone I've had so far.

    I would like to learn more about rooting my phone. I would appreciate it if someone could inform
    me of the benefits and any disadvantages (if there are any) to rooting the dna or any droid for that matter?

    Ive used droidforums.net for problem solving issues with my other phones. Its full of helpful info.

    Welcome to Droid Forums Dave!! If you check out our hacking and rescue squad sections there are a number of threads or guides that detail a little bit about root and what it means :)
