i have a ? about rooting the droid.
Once the droid is rooted..can it ever be undone?
Hate to ask and sound not smart and expert at rooting. But again can someone post the real potential of what can be done with a rooted Driod with examples thanks.
ok.. so rooting allows you to modify and alter and have control to many settings.. However.. Will you still get like.. updates.. to like apps.. and lets say i root 2.0.1... and then the update for 2.1 comes out for the droid... will i be alerted and notified for the update like i was for the 2.0.1..?
i have my Droid on Cricket Wireless. having root has nothing to do with it, since only the PRL needs to be changed (CDMA settings are "beneath" the Android software entirely) and the ESN registered with the carrier
the IMEI is tied to the device. however, i own the device so i can put it on whatever network allows me. while unlawful to change the device's hardware address, taking the Verizon stuff out and changing networks is NOT unlawful and totally possible
note that you will probably *not* get CDMA data working at this time, however, on another network. there is a lot of Verizon settings that revert on reboot or after NVRAM edits
after rooting the droid everything still works the same..updates? and everything? just allows you more access??
Thanks for the nice information.....

What settings can you alter??? I just rooted it and everything seems the same but I have a ninja/Superuser Permissions
I would like to know this too.
I applied the 2.0.1 update again to unroot my phone but superuser permission is still there.does this mean my phone is still rooted or not.do you know?
I wanna to be root on my phone, but im kinda scared to brick it.. that would suck..
rm -rf /etc/amazon_icon && rm -rf /etc/visualVM and so on.
So obviously rooting the device voids the warranty .... but if you unroot it does that put your warranty back or is it forever lost?
if you "unroot" the device, and there is no way that the manufacturer can detect that it's ever been rooted, they cannot void your warranty. I'm not sure how the droid works, i actually do not own one, but on the g1, if you flash the "dreaimg.nbh" file, it sets the phone back to stock firmware (android 1.0, stock radio, stock spl) .
