    I'm new to the whole Droid experience and keep seeing post about rooting a Droid. I like the idea of being able to remove bloatware because I hate having clutter on my phone. It seems like it may be easy do do, if given the proper procedure. I just wanted to see if there was any reason not to root a phone (yes, I'm aware it will void a warranty and can brick a phone).

    Which phone do you have?

    Also, yes rooting 'voids' the warranty but it is just as easy to unroot and remove any trace that it was rooted.

    I don't think z4 works with that phone so you will have to do it the ol fashion way that's the only thing but I highly recommend it myself

    Well, damn. Well, what's the old fashioned way if a program can't assist me? :)
