    Just wondering before I try it, will the app z4root work with the 2.3.20 ota we got a little while ago?

    Permanent. If it hangs, reboot and run it again.

    You only need to back up stuff if you are going to flash a rom. In which case grab a copy of the d2 bootstrapper from the marketplace for 2$ or free from koush's website and use it to bootstrap cm recovery. From there you can make a nandroid backup.

    Well I'm not ready to flash a rom yet so I guess I'm fine for now. I just want the features and apps the I can't have unrooted.
    What things can I do rooted that I can't do stock? (Besides roms)

    Themes jk

    You can now take screenshots, which I use quite frequently here on df. Also you can tether, freeze bloat, overclock. The list goes on.

    Agreed. My gf's D2 is stock rooted. I have Jrummy's OC app, Root Explorer, Wireless Tether (new one), Cachemate, and Drocap2 installed on her's. Waiting for an easier way to boot into recovery (or SP) before flashing anything to her phone.

    Oc levels or app? For app I strongly suggest jrummy's and for levels I find that ulv 1.2 or 1.25 s stable and quick without excessively hurting batt life.

    Tethering is running say a laptop or iPod off of your phone's internet. Basically, it turns your phone into a WiFi hotspot. Don't feel under par because of your age buddy, I know a themer who is 14 and a ROM developer that's 17! ;)
