    Ok so I'm new to Android. Just got a Droid incredible and I want to know what rooting is. I understand its something like jailbreaking an iPhone, but will it delete everything as well?

    No, it doesn't delete anything. It allows you to do basically whatever you want to on your phone though. And best of all, It doesn't affect anything unless its something that YOU do.
