Hi, I just had a few questions before I attempt root, and was hoping somone could help me out. First off, I got my Droid about a month ago, it already had 2.1 installed, so I have never gone through the update process. This brings me to my first question. It seems that if you want to root, no matter what, you will have to lose your app data. Is this correct? Also, if so, what about a normal OTA update? Would I also lose all the internal data (app settings, etc.) if I just waited for an OTA update from Verizon? If I'm going to lose all data either way, I might as well go ahead with root. Once rooted it sounds like it becomes possible to backup all app data, for future upgrades? So basically, I am just concerned about data loss. Reinstalling apps/programs and/or losing data is a pet peeve of mine. It is the reason I do nightly image backups of Windows on my desktop.
