    I've rooted an HTC phone I had with mixed results. And coming from the 'Palm family' (please don't judge) rooting seems more risky. I tried a handful of ROM's with the HTC and cyanogenmod seemed the most stable, while getting rid of bloat ware and a built in over clock was nice, it still wasn't as stable ans reliable as stock. So I'm curious who has rooted, which ROM did you use, and what have been the downsides?

    With ICS is the SMS stock any better? I had to switch to Hancent because stock SMS was so dull and plain.

    Trying to decide to wait on ics or to root. Guess I need to read up on how functional some of the ROM's are that are out.

    I'll give you my RAZR when you take it from my cold, dead hands...

    Always read up before rooting and flashing ROMs. Read, read, read. And then, after doing lots of reading, if you still have any questions over whether or not you should root, then you probably shouldn't. If rooting is for you, you'll know, and you won't have to ask if you should do it or not. :)

    Yep ensure you know what to do if you get stuck. Read and ask questions before diving in.

    I rooted, but not for ROM's, I just wanted to be able to make registry tweaks. The stock ROM .173 is fine and works great. Not even going for ICS until I have time to evaluate others experiences. I may just stick with what I have. It has and does just what I need. I may hesitate before rocking my boat here. But very glad to be rooted.
