    I would like to know, too. I just picked up the phone. I want to root it just to get rid of all the bloatware, but I don't want to overstep so soon. Really, what I would like to do is root, uninstall the bloatware, then unroot. Is that possible, yet?

    Yes, with this oneclickroot, you can also choose to unroot:

    Pete's Motorola Root Tools

    EDIT: I
    just unrooted because I started suddenly experiencing freeze-ups which required a battery pull each time. Unroot button fails unless you choose "temporary root" first and then click unroot.

    Have you been able to confirm the freeze ups were due to root and therefore recommend not rooting?

    Rooted mine and have not had any issues or freezes. Changed my boot animation which is the main reason I wanted to root right now.

    I believe the freezing was from me messing around with SetCPU a little too much :). I would always recommend rooting, it is part of the greatness of Android :)

    FWIW, the Droid 3 can be unrooted if you use the manual method, I'd be curious if the Bionic is the same.

    I rooted mine as soon as I got home.

    I had an issue with the screen and used superoneclick to unroot before taking it back and exchanging it.

    So I messed up my phone a bit last night with SetCPU so I deleted my root apps and unrooted and everything is great again. BUT.... now the root tool can't root my phone again. Crap. Any ideas from anyone?

    EDIT: doing a factory reset to see if I can root after that.

    EDIT 2: The factory reset fixed it! Rooted again! Now I have to set everything up again :icon_evil:
