    I know this has been posted before but I don't know what to do. Root or wait for Android 2.2 on the Motorola Droid. All help is appreciated thanks.

    lol if you know this has been posted before then you should just read the comments...

    we can't tell you what to do. I have a stock droid with launcherpro and love it.

    whether you want to root or not is not up to us.

    Launcherpro really changes the phone for me, it's a great tool.

    If you want to really customize your phone, go ahead and root. But Launcherpro and the other apps make your phone completely different, so staying with the Android software is still good

    I rooted mine, 2.2 will not likely be out for at least six more months.

    six months? youre crazy....

    I'd say go ahead and root it, if you do you'll most likely have 2.2 before everyone else thats stock does.

    they've said it will be out within a couple weeks of release of 2.2, and there's already videos of 2.2 on the droid.

    Hahaha

    Honestly, i don't want to call out the new people or anything, but the tools are there... search, stickies, etc.

    I know some are new to forum formats but really, it's all there. It's more work on the mods when they run into these kinds of threads every other day.


    PLEASE USE SEARCH PEOPLE!!!

    I'd love to root, but I'm too chicken. I consider myself a fairly tech-savvy person, but everytime I look into who to root it just seems so overwhelming.

    I'll be waiting :)
