Tuesday Poll: Rooted or Non-rooted?

Every six months or so we like to run this poll to get an idea as to how many of our readers are living in the land of the superusers.  And this time, we’re going to do something similar to the poll we ran a few weeks back, when we asked users which ROM they were using.  We want to create more of those fancy charts, so along with answering the poll, we also want you to list out the device you are currently running in the comments with your root-status.

Rooted or Non-Rooted?

    This is like polling the readers of the Fox News site if they would vote Republican or Democrats. Most readers on this site are well informed Android Consumers and are more than likely going to be running rooted devices if possible.

    Xoom – Rooted & Unlocked

  • Sprotthedestroyer

    I live around a bunch of droid users(bout a hundred) and I’m the only one rooted. I use stock for about most everything because I don’t need fancy shit, just functional. I rooted to overclock, underclock, convert to a wifi hotspot, and to remove bloatware. I’ve been trying to convince my friends that rooting is easy and is reversable(depending on circumstances) but they have apps that do almost everything my rooted only apps can do. Can anyone help? I want my friends to open their minds to the possibilities rooting allows.


  • My OG Droid, son’s Droid X, daughter’s Droid Pro, daughter’s Incredible, and now my Xoom all ROOTED and loving it… Next I want to ROOT my car… LOL!
