    its just your choice...

    im rooted, but i did it cos of the battery life (setCPU and custom kernels) and cos im from chile and i need Market Enabler to buy apps.

    if u dont see the reason for rooting, dont do it, its your phone.

    if u want, there is a full thread of the rooting experience, look there and try to find a reason for rooting the phone

    Can you say: prettier?
    Can you say: faster?
    Can you say: more stable?
    Can you say: more choices?
    Can you say: infinite freedom?
    Can you say: because you can?

    That is why I rooted :D
    My sigs keep getting

    im not the way to convince ppl to do things that i did...

    if he dont find why he should root... or why he need reasons to root, he dont need to root it.

    if u need/want it, or find something great on the rooted phones and u want that, just do it, if u dont, stay stock.

    Rooted and stock N1 are great, 100000x better than iPhone
