I would like to root my TB and this would be my first root ever so I have a few questions. Does rooting open your phone up to any outside security risks? After rooting do you have to reinstall all your applications? Can you still use launchers like EX? My main reason for wanting to root is Battery life Remove bloatware Teather via Usb Can someone point me to a respectable place where I can read tutorials and download the necessary software to root? I plan to also root my wife's Droid 2 as well. Are there any drawbacks to rooting?
