    Can someone shed light on this subject because everyone that I know has done it has a key part of the phone inoperable, ex: camera, SD card

    at this point, I don't see any plausible reason (other than experimentation) to root. I've rooted and RUU'd back to stock.

    Until we can get the camera drivers it just aint worth it to me

    That is what I thought so I will just keep mine stock and wait for FROYO release cause I use the hell out of my camera.

    Rooting doesn't make you lose camera.
    Flashing a new froyo patched together Rom will...
    I think the dude was saying he rooted, is stock and still has camera and can use SD...so could I when I was rooted.
