    i mean other then the free tethering(which i found a app for 10$ that does it anyway but i got for free"easy tether"dancedroid)

    so whats so cool that i can do with extra control i guess what im looking for is someone to sell me on whats so great about rooting.

    There's tether, overclocking, installing different roms, editing system files, deleting bloatware, setting up power profiles, clearing cache, system tweaking, blocking ads, and lcd density changing to name a few things ;)

    Edit: If you want to root the easy way, download z4root from the market. It's one click.

    z4Root is no longer in the Market. It can be downloaded at xda developers and downloaded as an .apk file.
