    If you had originally configured your phone to Auto-sync (under Settings->Accounts & sync) then it is automatic to get all of your apps back. I think a lot of us forget about that.

    I felt the same way once I took the plunge. I'm sure all of the anti-rooters would too.....

    How things change so quickly. Two days ago I thought I had no reason to root. Then someone (the author of "wifi fixer") told me that Cyanogen already fixed the flaky wifi issue. That was all the motivation I needed.

    What a HUGE difference with Cyanogen. This is how I imagine Gingerbread will be in however many months it takes to be released. Loving it.

    My N1 is still stock, it's not that I don't want to root just don't think I know enough just yet to venture into that. Seems like there are too many "instructions" on how to root but they all differ slightly. Is on better than another and which one is most benefitial to me and the phone. I even downloaded that Titanium back up but it says it is not compatible since my phone is not rooted? Wouldn't I want to backup my phone/settings before rooting just in case???

    Soon all my questions will be answered and I will once again have the king of all Android phones... that Iphony has no chance...

    The best instructions for rooting is in this thread:
    http://www.nexusoneforum.net/forum/n...tructions.html
    And if you have any questions there are a lot of cool people that will help you like Sheanzy, Rugman, SliceburgSlim, Beer Goggles, AndroidistheTruth, and many more.
    Rooting is different than flashing a ROM. Rooting basically opens up your phone so you can flash roms, kernals, radios, and install apps that require more access to your phone...like titanium. That's why you have to be rooted to run titanium backup.
    So read through the instructions and relax. So far, no one has been steered wrong in that thread. And there are no dumb questions so please ask if you need help. And if you decide to root, we got your back! Good luck

    Maybe there needs to be a new social group called "Sitting on the Fence".

    They don't "Refuse to Root", but they aren't quite ready for the "Root Gang".

    :rofl3:
