    a very newbie android question...please help

    i have been reading around lots of android forums and almost every one talks about rooting their devices...i do understand tht rooting an android device gives you more superior access to the OS but what i dont understand is that
    a- will rooting harm my device?
    b- can i un-root later on?
    c- will rooting negatively affect my mobile's functionality
    d- is it safe for a newbie to perform root (following step by step guides available)
    e- is rooting the only way i can unlock my galaxy mini?

    thanx alot people .. really need help

    Like you, have the same questions. I think it is ok, but I am afraid to try it, so for now, am happy that I see no need to root my device.
