    So couple days ago I bought the Motorola Droid and I have some questions.

    What does rooting the droid allow you to do? or what does rooting mean.

    Thanks and sorry if this is the wrong section

    Sorry but once again read the stickies, they tell you EVERYTHING =)....rooting allows for WiFi tether, theming, and overclocking of the processor.
