I have been a smart phone user for over 2 years and I love them. A bit of a phone geek for sure. But. I have never rooted a device, ever. I love my Nexus as it is, but I kind of feel that I am missing out, and that I bought my phone for the wrong reasons. Because all I read is that the strongest suit of the Nexus, is the developer community. And that I am not utilizing the capability of the phone unless I root. I am not even sure of what all is available to me, and what upgrades and new features I can access, but it seems to be near limitless. So, I am thinking of doing it. I have a buddy that has a Galaxy and has rooted it and seems to like it. I think he has had a few stability issues from time to time, but has them sorted. I DO NOT want any stability issues. I want a rock solid device, just like I have now. But, I think I would like the new features and options that I hope rooting would bring. I am going to look for some threads that discuss rooting, and the how to's etc. I want to do it right so I have no issues. Where should I go to see which Rom's I should run, and which ones offer what features? Etc.
