please post the reasons you decided to root your droid
To put the 2.1 rom on. But I ended up switching back to 2.0.1 but it's still rooted so :dunno:
So I could:
-use 2.1 (went back)
-take a screenshot
-clear my cache
-change my boot animation without having to use command prompts
-to explore my phone completely
Terminal emulator...thats the only reason. Unix is beautiful, I enjoy playing with it.
Because I can. I never found a "true" reason to do so until the WiFi tether app came out--I used that quite a bit on my road trip. I've always like to hack things and use them beyond their intention. I've always been curious, and I guess rooting goes along with that.
-installing a custom recovery image and the 2.1 ROM (HC .79)
and what biglou said, i have great interest in pushing my electronics to the max, i mean why not? you own it, you should have full control of it IMHO
to get 2.1 and wifi tether
I did it for the same reason I've been running Linux as my primary operating system for the last 6 years. Freedom to use hardware I paid for in any manner I deem fit.
Because I can.
How am I supposed to be "teh 1337" if I don't have root access?!? :icon_ banana:
Because all the cool kids are doing it! :icon_ banana:
duhn duhn duhn...... for all you iphone/ipod touch fans
