    I haven't taken the time to read all 13 (or however many) pages of this thread.... I find myself spending WAY-YYY-YY-Y too much time on this board, as it is. Yes, y'all can take that as a compliment, and rightfully so. There is some REAL talent here.

    Rooted? Me? Naw, really no need... as yet. At the same time, I'm no techno-phobe, and may find a need to go that way. I've only had the Droid X for a week today, and there's only a couple of small irritants that grab my attention.

    One, for example, and this is so obvious.... add a new Contact (it is a phone still, ....right?), go to enter a Zip Code.... WTF?! Why does the keyboard NOT default to numeric? Hello? Does anyone know of a freaking alpha-character Zip Code?! Ha. No biggie.

    I suppose this is one example of where a super user could alter the original device, right? Would it be relatively easy for a gear head to do? I'm not one, when it comes to Linux or 'droid programming.

    So, the short answer to "rooted or not" is, there's still a learning curve for me before I start getting under the hood. It intrigues me, but it's not like I have unlimited time to learn how to hack this phone. It's pretty doggone slick, out of the box, IMNSHO.

    Interesting that I found this thread / poll, because as I surf / lurk on some 5 or 6 different Droid forums, I started wondering, "who around here has NOT rooted their Droid?" Then, just as I was about to start a new thread, BANG! this thread pops up. Weird. Or not....

    It took me a week of reading this thread to actually realize there was really a poll with it cause I was always reading from the forums app on my phone till I finally brought it up on my computer one day cause I actually wanted to have a thread up as I made a couple new mods.

    DX- rooted, deodexed, strapped, OC'd, and themed how I like it.

    I rooted before.. just for the free tethering and then for themes.. then my phone stopped charging for some reason and I had to take it to Verizon.. I tried restoring it back to stock but failed at that and ended up in a bootloop so when they sent my new phone I just left it as is.. I think I wanna root it again but not sure..

    Z4 root. Its a one click root. Works like a charm but make sure your updated to 2.3.340 first. The benefit of a custom rom is speed and even better battery life and more customizations..pm me if u need help or contact me on this thread. And ask away. Lol
