    So I'm a newbie to this and heard about rooting my droid x but I am hoping you guys can tell me what the pros and cons are to rooting? And whether or not it can be reversed?

    Thanks guys

    Root with universal androot or z4root, yes it's reversible. The pros are being able to have root only apps and custom roms. Cons.. Voided warranty, unless of course you return to stock.

    Thanks for the quick response. O think I am finally understanding what root is. But you mentioned "rom" the rom is the memory itself is that correct? God I feel dumb!! Ok what exactly can I do with the rom once I root? If I am asking too much maybe you can give me a website that I can read....

    Sorry and thank you in advance.

    No rom isn't the memory haha :)
    It's a term we use when talking about edited versions of the phones software it comes with. Usually they're at least a little better than stock. People often deodex the system files for theming and remove some pre installed apps along with adding extra features to it, usually making it run a whole lot faster. You can google custom rom and some will come up for you.
    Oh, and you need to be rooted to install a custom rom, at least in most cases you do.
