Please change the question title to reflect the actual question. Also, this is probably too broad of a question. –  tnorthcutt Aug 25 '10 at 16:13

this is more or less the procedure I followed for rooting my motorola droid on android 2.1

It was straightforward and error-free. That said, unless you have a compelling reason to root your phone (like upgrading to a pre-release rom), I don't see why you should bother (go volunteer your free time to community service instead).

In that case I suppose one shouldn't customize any of their possessions without a compelling reason. I feel that owning something is all the reason someone needs to customize to their liking. And with a straightforward and error-free process, why not? –  Webs Aug 26 '10 at 13:06
    
there are also much simpler solutions, like the one click root apps. –  NES Dec 27 '10 at 15:32
