    I know there is like 6 bazillion other posts about this, I'm not asking how to root, or what a ROM is or anything I already know this.

    I am simply asking should I?

    Once again I know about all the threads, I am very good with computers and technology and I am very much considering rooting my Droid running 2.1.1, I have been doing my research and it seems like it could have some awesome benefits, the only thing I'm worried about is my warranty, and bricking my phone :[.

    Input greatly appreciated,
    Brick

    Since you know what you are doing with technology then yes i would defiantly go ahead and do it. Also it is not easy to completely brick your phone because if all else fails the there is always the 2.0.1 sbf like titans said. I only know one person who has bricked their droid out of the thousands who root.

    to keep from getting the notification to root the ota I recommend using sbf to flash ese 81 sprecovery. Since you are able to get into recovery you can flash or install any rom with out the update notification. Because you will be bugged within 15 mins of flashing 2.01.
