    Angry Unlocking the root

    Hey guys,
    I'm such a newbie at all this hacking but I LOVE IT!!!!
    I have an unlocked nexus on order.
    Is there a difference between unlocked & rooted? My My Touch is rooted with tons of help from the awesome guys at the T Mobile forum. I thought unlocked meant I didn't need to root or is that just pertaining to my carrier?
    I'm confused as usual
    Do I need to root & if so will you guys give me a hand rooting my phone when it get's here????
    If so, thank you so much!!!!!
    Peace all!!!!
    Love,
    Gwen

    Google built a command to allow you to install alternative firmware into their retail bootloader? Wow. Much easier than it was with the G1 even.

    So refreshing after dealing with apple..
