    Actually, that's 6, and you have 4 to go. But hey, who's counting :)

    Hey man....#7 Bootanimation

    That is incorrect....having a custom bootanimation has nothing to do with being rooted

    Sorry, I was doing this last night when I was a little out of it :) made the changes now... and I did say in my article that you can change the boot animation without root, but it is a pain to do, root just makes it a ton easier to do.

    Hey I was just on your site, and went over to your youtube channel. I saw your video where you got locked in wal-mart(lol), and I notice the "pixelation" of the video. My Droid does this same thing, and I was wondering if its a software issue that can be fixed with an update, or a hardware problem. What do you think?

    I'm very curious about the top 4 considering that I see WiFi Tether as the overwhelming #1 reason to root but you only have it as #5!

    Readable but the gray on black was a little hard on my eyes. The blue I definitely could read.

    Only 4 more entries left. I'll have to check back to see if "so you can post on droidforums.net: help, I bricked my phone! "

    Good list. I haven't messed with gscript. I'll check it out, thanks!

    Good list, but also had trouble reading it due to the black background.
