    Is rooting your phone such a strange idea?

    Most of my friends have not rooted their phones but their's is simply because the idea sounds strange. Have you rooted your phone yet? I am yet to do that but I would prefer if this was handled by a pro.

    I haven't, because I don't feel like I need to. But I do think it's a "strange idea" in that most people wouldn't think of rooting their phone, or programing their own software, or doing anything out of the ordinary from what's already in their phone. You know? Most people are happy with what they've got, or, if not happy, then at least accepting. People who root are people who want to be more in control of their devices.

    I don't think it's a strange idea. I think most people don't even know what rooting is or why they would want to root their phones. I am content with what I have, I don't really see a reason for me to root mine.

    Rooting is fine if you know what you're doing and there's a benefit to you. My guess is that most people don't feel the need for customizing their phone that way. Also, it requires some expertise so you don't mess up your phone.
