    I'm new to android and the milestone.... My milestone is actually my first android device.
    What benefit does rooting bring right now? What exactly is market enabler and how can I get it on my milestone??
    thx for the help!

    No - on the contrary, I swear I actually noticed an increase in speed and snappiness... as in, it seems to run faster.
    I know that rooting should, in reality, make absolutely no difference at all to the speed of the device, so it's a little strange.

    Perhaps my sleep-deprivation induced delirium is the real cause...

    Yeah - I was considering updating earlier on, although I think I'm going to wait for the actual OTA update, just in case.
    I'd rather have a slightly laggy phone than a £450 paperweight :)

    I think the real question is , once the update is available for you will you grab it right away (risking to lose the ability to su ) or will you wait , like us for custom rom :icon_ devil:

    Does rooting enable me installing apps in the SD card? If so, how do I achieve this?


    edit: After some investigation it seems its apps2sd

    You don't need rooting to install apps from the sd card...

    I'm from brasil and I still get the message 'can't connect to servers' :/
