I'm very new to smartphones. What does rooted mean?
It installs a program called Superuser which gives you access to things that the manufacturer has locked.
For instance, you know all those apps like Google Books, Amazon mp3, Blockbuster and more that came on your phone and you can't uninstall them? With root you can.
You can also install a custom ROM, undervolt and overclock, wifi tether for free, install different themes and more.
Thanks for the reply. Rembering that I'm a smart phone Novice, how do I go about rooting my Droid X2? I'm an old guy and my daughter told me that I'm on the "on ramp" to the 21st century when I acquired the smartphone.

I would recommend buy Bloat Freezer from the market to freeze bloatware instead of deleting it. That way if you need to update or anything, you can just unfreeze it.
