    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.

    nice article. But you may want to consider re-wording #1 and #2

    There are now 2 recovery images you could use now (clockwork and sprecovery, I personally prefer clockwork)

    and as far as Pete's ESE53 build being the most official and stable 2.1 ROM out, what makes it any more official than the ESE53.sbf or any other ROM out based on it? Same question about stability?

    nice. 2 typos that I noticed now... (lol, I swear I'm not trying to be an editor or anything) on #4 change "tall" to "all" and on #1 "suite" to "suit"
