    I'm quite new to all this and I was wandering what exactly rooting does for me and how can I do it? And comments or help would be greatly appreciated. :)

    Rooting gives you near-godlike control over your phone. It allows you to overclock, theme, remove bloat, customize, improve, streamline, and WiFi tether your phone. Everything you need to know, basically, is in various links in my signature.

    Oh, and if you do root...

    Welcome to the Dark Side. We have cookies. :D

    At this point in time you need a PC or Linux box to root the Droid 1 (though it's possible on a Mac). You can use RSD Lite -- which is finicky -- or a terminal/ADB depending on if you're using a Linux box or Windows -- much more precise but a pain in the butt and you don't get a custom recovery image for your trouble.

    Ah beg to differ, sir, my guide includes SPRecvoery, but would have to be modified for using a terminal emulator instead of ADB.

    Root the A855 without RSD Lite + make it ROM ready
