Rooting your Android

Hey guys,

After months of research, and waiting for the price to drop, I went out and bought the Nexus S. I've been hearing a lot of mixed feelings on rooting android devices. Does anyone have any really good (useful, not just fun) reasons for rooting your phone?

Features like increased root directory don't appeal to me as I haven't seen a use for them...yet.

Well rooting your phone gives you complete control your device and you can change the way it looks the way it feels and everything .though rooting in cases of some phones cause the warranty to be void but trust me its worth rooting your phone ......!

I have a rooted samsung captivate and i love it.

One biggest advantage of rooting is that you can easily install custom roms on your phone which are way to awesome to let go

Well if your rooted and want to play around and get to the good stuff for your android come over to:

xda-developers.com

Ypu will find it the best place for your smartphone and everything is for free.....!

I'll check it out. Hopefully I'll have more luck there.

So far I'm having some starter issues. Got my phone rooted and a Superuser installed. I can't detect my network atm. Even after manually entering my network provider settings. Also, tried installing the Cyanogen Mod Rom and Bootloader gives me an error when I go into the Restore branch. Little Android with a exclamation mark above him! Only way to reboot then is a hard reset(battery)

frankly speaking, if u r just a normal user, ie surfing and playing games...

there is no need for root.

Unless u wanna customize or installed programs that need access to the root...e.g. droidwall (a firewall)

for me i root cos i can block unwanted connection out of the phone and block apps that read imei, etc
