    So I got myself a Droid about a week ago and it feels like the best phone I have laid my hands on. I just however really don't know what to do with it if I root it.

    Can you guys give suggestion or your experiences on rooting your phone.

    For Example:

    • What did you gain?
    • Any cool Apps or Themes that can be installed not possible with 2.0.1
    • If I were ever to want to turn back my Droid to stock firmware and setting. Is that possible.
    Cheers Guys and hoped you all had a wonderful New Years. :icon_ banana:

    EDIT: I have read through this thread I just want your personal experiences.

    Do it!

    I like having 2.1

    adfree is great app. I always hated seeing a caddy ad on pandora. Clear notification panel is cool too.

    2.1 is what made me do it.
