Win 1 of 10 JRummy Applications – DROID Overclock Or Root Tools *Updated with Winners!*

Jared Rummler aka JRummy16 is one of our favorite people here at Droid-Life. He has donated 5 copies of 2 applications for us to give away during our amazing Reader Apprecation Week for all of you to enjoy. Both applications are for rooted users only. Droid Overclock is an overclocking app, naturally, just like SetCPU. And with a beautiful interface it’s a must have for any rooted user who enjoys speed boosts. Root Tools is an extremely powerful application which installs custom fonts, boot animations, allows users to change build.prop, and seriously a whole mess of other features. Sound like fun?

And the winners are…  

Root Tools:

EvanTheGamer
Nathaniel Watkins
Ryan Ball

Steelertown7

DROID Overclock:

Hobbs Jacob
Sjm614
Blueliner19
Lolitsnoah
Raven

Congrats everyone!  We’ll forward your info on to Mr. Rummler and get you all set up.  And thanks for all the fantastic comments.  Some great laughs in there if you have a few minutes to spare on a Friday night.

_______________________________________

Since we’ve been asking you to tweet phrases for the bigger prizes, all I will ask is that you tell me in the comment section below…

Why do you love rooting your Android device, and which application you would rather win?

And from all the answers I will choose 10 winners at 5 PM PST. Make sure to answer the question with a valid email address so we can contact the winners properly.

It has been a wonderful week here, and I am extremely proud and grateful to be such a big part of it. Not only is Droid-Life appreciative of you all, but I myself am extremely appreciative towards everyone’s support and kind words over the two years I have been reading and working on this site. It’s my favorite place to be. You guys and girls are the best, and I’ll continue to try my best in meeting all of your Android needs. Thanks again everyone!

-Tato

Cheers JRummy for being a great guy and amazing developer! Follow him on Twitter.

    Thanks, Tim, Kellex, JRummy and Droid-Life, you guys rock!

  • Bigdroiddog

    I love rooting my android phones because its a challenge,because i should be able to manipulate what i pay good money for, because it consumes most of my life and i am happy about it.
    I would love to win root tools because i just went from my OG droid to a Droid X and 3plan to customize it with my Fav developers software. Jrummy

    Why do you love rooting your Android device, and which application you would rather win?
    Root Tools, duh. The whole idea of android is to customize it as you want. That’s why i love it! What better way to do it then a app by an awesome dev? Even though i am learning to do my own ROM from source JRummy16, Peter Alfonso and Koush are the guys that are inspiring me to push on. One day i want people to be like, hey you get that latest build from zerotime..?  getting root tools will help me understand a lot of different items i would like to mod on my OG

  • Anonymous

    Ive already got Root Tools, but I thought I’d post about how awesome an app it is. JRummy is seriously the man. Never has there been an app that lets you make the kinds of modifications you want (such as boot animations, fonts, etc) so easily. If you dont already have this app, make sure to get it.

  • Rooting= Freedom
    Love rooting and just messing around on my OG Droid the way it should be for all android devices. Been with the OG since day 1 and the minute I found out about rooting my device I did it. I would love to have Root Tools. 

  • Ballaholyk84

    I love rooting my phone because its a hobby I can enjoy for free and at the same time I can learn things and keep my brain growing since I cant afford to go back to school. Its because of people like jrummy and the rest of the devs that I am able to learn so much from their awesome knowledge and willingness to help the uneducated become more educated without the high cost of education!

    Id love to get root tools or droid overclock. Expect nothing but appreciate everything.

  • i like free wifi hotspot.
    gingerbreak.

  • like most people will probably say… i like having as much access to my phone and whatnot as possible. i want to change and customize as much as a can.  make my phone unique.  i LOVE customization.

    as for the app i would like.. i already bought droid overclock..twice actually..hah.. due to a mistake on my end.. so i would like root tools.

  • I love rooting my phone because it gives me full control, plus its the principal of being “open”. I would like the Root Tools app. Thanks Guys.

  • BA_Carroll

    I love rooting my phone because it unlocks the best aramel and Nugent center of my phone! I can over lock it and take off all the bloatware which my carrier so thoughtfully left for me. Would love root tools

  • Anonymous

    I love rooting because I can flash a different rom every month and use it the way the person who dreamed up the hardware intended. Also, to show everyone I know why Android is better than any other phone OS.

  • Anonymous

    Why root? Easy for total control and getting the most out of my phone 🙂 

    If I am lucky enough to win then I would go for root tools

  • d2g

    Having a droid 2 global is great… except for it having all of the Verizon bloaghtware. I use root with TI backup to get rid of it and enjoy my phone the way it was ment to be. I would rather have root tools to install a custom boot animation!

  • bensherms

    I love root because if I spend my money on a device, I expect full control of the platform. With root on my droid eris and samsung fascinate, I’ve been able to make the device must more reliable and MUCH faster. Root allows to make my phone ‘mine’ – I’d like root tools because I generally stay away from oc’ng my phones

  • cgo

    I’m a control freak. I’ve I wanted to be like everyone else I’d buy an i*hone. Would love Droid Overclock.

  • Cory

    Ii love rooting my device because of the thrill I get from basically outsmarting major companies phones software… Plus I love being able to fully customize my phone do it doesn’t look like any one elses phone! Like the battery, color, fonts, themes, so on so forth. If I won I would want to win the root tools application because I’ve seen how much the application can do for total customization!

  • I love rooting my phone because without root, I’m not using my phone to its full potential. When I root my device, it actually becomes MY device, not Verizon’s or anyone else’s. Not to mention that when I root my device, I can do SO much more with it that a stock device cannot even dream of doing. 

    My app of choice would be Droid Overclock.

  • i love rooting because i am not evious of those high tech locked bootloader phones. My d1 scores better that a gingerbread dx in quadrant, SUCK IT NEW PHONES 9from a d1). i would lke root tools

  • Bwatson5391

    Ive tried to root but I feel I always get it wrong and I screw something up i would love to root my phone but I don’t take the time to fully learn it understand it so i would pick root tool?

  • Mguytsr

    because now the phone is mine, and not bloat

  • Ryan Ball

    I love rooting so I can overclock my phone with Jrummy’s OC app (Great app to get even if you don’t win it!)

    I would love to get Root Tools!

  • I love to root my devices because it allows me to really make it my phone.  It has the look, feel, and shortcuts that I want, NOT what the manufacturer thinks I should want.

    Root Tools would definitely be my choice.

  • I love it because you have all the freedom that you want, instead of being a drone, you get to break the mold and be you’re self, its not just do this do that you get to be ORIGINAL!!! and that is why i love rooting….  ability to break free

  • I love rooting my device because it opens up a ton of options and things to do your phone. ROMS, framework edits, different kernels, no ads, over clocking, titanium backup, the list just goes on. Idk why people would choose not to root.

    Root tools would be sweet.

  • Wyveryx

    rooting has enabled me to change my speeds, dump some bloatware, and make my overall experience even better than what I had imagined.

  • I love to remove verizon’s bloatware and theme. I also love to run custom roms. Would much rather have root tools.

  • Kevin

    I just got a Droid X and ready to root it and ROM it and use jrummy16’s apps

  • Hobbs Jacob

    I love rooting because it drives my wife crazy. Especially when the occasional accident results in me reloading the OS.

    Droid Overclock, please.

  • event121

    Android is about community. I love rooting because then I can utilize the amazing improvements and customization the geniuses of our age have developed. I would totally love to have a copy of Root Tools – I’m at that stage where I have too many apps that could be consolidated into one amazing and all powerful app. 

  • adam

    I love rooting for one simple reason…cover up the stupid blur on my d2

    If I could get any app free I would want any gameloft game

    • adam

      Sorry if you pick mine I put the wrong email ill fix it here

  • Sjm614

    Freedom. Android is like America! DROID overclock.

  • T

    Oh the many reasons why I love rooting my OG Droid…SetCPU making my battery life amazing…flashing a custom rom…increasing memory with Swapper 2….taking screenshots with ShootMe…putting a custom boot animation on my phone…wireless tether for root users….I mean the list goes on and on.

    Root tools would probably be my app of choice…I haven’t seen Droid Overclock but I already have SetCPU and I can’t see it being much better if at all.

  • fkntwizted

    To give me administrative control over my phone!

  • pezono

    I love rooting for several reasons. The most valid reason is for ROMs. I love being able to swap and backup ROMs in a matter of a couple of minutes that COMPLETELY change the way the phone functions (in a good way). The other reason I like root is to block ads because, let’s face it, I have never actually clicked on an ad due to interest outside of supporting developers in which case I can easily reverse and redo ad blocking!

  • I love rooting my device because then I’m able to:

    – Remove bloatware.
    – Backup all my apps and their respective data. Thanks to Titanium Backup I no longer have to three star all the Angry Birds levels.- Take screenshots of my high scores and send them to my friends so they know how much better I am than they are.

  • Anonymous

    The reasons I like to root are many. But, I Like knowing that I can truly personalize “My Phone” the way I want. The whole point of open-source is development through self and community, in my opinion anyways. Rooting/Romming/Modding just allows me to make the device “My Own” the way I like;0 , No Bloatware, No Carrier Blocks , and No Limits!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Live It, Love It, Droid-Life……………………Drooooooooooooooiiiiiiiiiidd!!!!!

  • Slagg3r

    I love rooting my android device.. because i like to run gingerbread over clocked on my original Droid!! espically since moto said NO…

  • Cjvio

    I love rooting my android simply because I tried it just to feel like I owned this phone. I love having control. And my first two purchased apps were rom manager and set cpu. First rom was a Jrummy one. Then lithium. Now on the X I love liberty. Can’t wait for gingerbread liberty rom. And I follow Jrummy on twitter. All because I found this website called droid-life.com. Gout my mom n dad on droids because of you guys. My old droid went to my brother in law and he has me root it and put new roms on it all the time. Love android & rooting!

  • DiGs

    I love rooting it because i can make the phone fast as hell and customize it to be my own. Root Toolls because I already have setcpu.

  • Droid1294

    Rooting makes your phone better than it already is. I’d rather win root tools because I want to change my boot animation

  • David E. Smith

    For me, it’s mostly the principle (and partly because I enjoy Linux-y stuff, I mean, Linux is my day job too). I’d love a copy of Root Tools. 

  • JeffG

    I love rooting my phone so I can use android like it was meant to be used, open. Root tools would be my app of choice.
    LovetoDL!

  • Mosbysjedi

    I love Root because I’m a tree (Ba dum tssss)

    I’ll take root tools if I win 

  • Jeff

    I love rooting my droid to create nandroid backups for when I inevitably screw something up
    I would rather win Droid Overclock

  • Why do I love rooting my device? I love that I can crack things open, change them, modify them for my own needs. I love being different. So I take every opportunity to make my phone look, feel, and operate, just a slight bit different from my friends (in a cool way of course). I also like to overclock my phone, and keep it running fast, as well as underclock it.

    I’d prefer Root Tools! 🙂

  • Anonymous

    A bit off topic but I just wanted to let people know if you didn’t already. I talked to a guy from Verizon cause my Droid 1 finally breathed it’s last breath, so now I have a replacement coming. I spoke to tech support and he told me the Droid Bionic is still coming out the first part of the 3rd quarter either July or August, and that it will probably have a keyboard. If fact he sounded real sure it was going to have a physical keyboard and I mentioned the Droid 3 and he said ” no not the Droid 3″ he said the Droid Bionic will. He’s very familiar with both phones. If fact, he was sporting a Dinc or something like that. 

  • I like rooting because it makes my awesome OG droid better than some brand new phones currently, and still has great battery life!

    I would hope to win any of his. They all are nice applications 😀

  • MC67

    Rooting is great because it unlocks the full potential of these powerful devices that the greedy service providers leverage to pull a few more pennies out of my pocket.

    documents 2 go would be my choice

  • versusxiii

    I root my device to get rid of the bloatware and to CUSTOMIZE!!! I’m a UI freak and this site has made me a minimal lover!

    GO ROOT TOOLS!

    DROIDLIFE4EVA!

  • claydos66

    The ability to customize my phone the way I want, when I want it and with the software I want.

    • claydos66

      Root tools

  • Root tools would make what I do with my rooted phone significantly easier. Of course, rooting also let’s you port new stuff to the phone/mobile device… such as inferno-os 😛

  • Anthony Lamberto

    I love rooting because it gives me every ounce of power and customization of MY phone.

    i’d love to finally get a chance to overclock (and underclock at work to save battery)

  • JrzDroid

    Why do I love rooting my android device? I love it cause of the ROMS. The custom roms that developers spend hours and hours perfecting for people to use. Making firmware without all the junk that carriers throw on, speeding up our phones and making them ten fold better then usually delivered from the OEM. What other method can be used to fully theme and change everything about your phone? Nothing at all. Rooting is what makes our phones stand out from all the other cell phones in the world. Wanna change your theme, battery icon, or remove bloat? A rooted phone, is a damn happy phone

  • Khrair

    Love rooting because I can customize my phone and remove unwanted battery sucking apps . I would prefer root tools!

  • Nathaniel Watkins

    I love rooting because of the freedom it gives me over my own property, allowing my phone to be MY phone.

    I would prefer Root Tools because Cyanogen Mod 7 provides me plenty of control over overclocking.

  • RUKKUS

    I already bought all of JRummy’s apps 😛

  • I’m the kind of person who puts stickers on my water bottle and my computer, and rooting my phone gives me a chance to make it look and behave (pretty much) however I choose. Customization ftw! Having already bought Droid Overclock, it would make much more sense for me to hope for Root Tools. Thanks, you guys, for all you do here and for these amazing contests!

  • I love Root Tools. Very Useful. 

  • I love Root Tools. Very Useful. 

  • First i would love root tools. second i love the fact that after i root i can literally do almost anything with my phone. I love showing my friends crazy things my droidx can do. It has made me have to root about 5 of my friends phones.

  • C Dirty

    I rooted my phone for moar lulz.

    • C Dirty

      Oh yeah, and Root Tools would be the lulz avenue of choice.

  • I love my rooted droid makes it more useful and I can customize it to my liking

  • @Kenyon

    I like rooting because I still rock the OG Droid. Thanks to th developer community I see no need to upgrade to a newer device yet. I enjoy the fact that my device is still not secure with the latest version of Android.

    I’d prefer to win a copy of root tools since I am always customizing phone number

  • I love rooting because whatever I can imagine on my phone, I can make it a reality. Root tools would be awesome!

  • orion11

    I root my phone mainly because then I can tweak and optimize the system so taht it runs smoother, faster, and gets the best battery life… you know, make the phone run the way it should.

  • I love my phone being rooted because most people I am around have no idea what I am talking about or think I am really techno savy

  • Humidity16

    Its like homeowners association dues …no one likes to spend that kind of money and then be told what you can and cannot due. Droid Overclock pretty please.

  • Connor Brinton

    Undervolting for battery life! Also being able to install updates before everyone else is an added plus.

  • hellaandrew

    Rooting my phone is basically a must. I, for one, don’t like companies telling me what I need or want (bloatware…). Rooting your phone just basically opens your phone up to basically anything you want to do with it, so that’s why I do it. 

    As for the prize, I would LOVE to win Root Tools!! It will only further my obsession with Android.

  • Anonymous

    Love rooting to install custom ROMs. Root Tools is the app I’ll win.

  • Anonymous

    Rooting opens up my devices to things like early updates, user choices (speed vs. battery life with overclocking, fonts, etc.), less bloatware, and apps that take advantage of the increased access (screenshot apps, root explorers, etc.).

    Remember how you could switch out Stagefright when it bugged Pandora? Go root!

    Phones should come with the capabilities you can gain by rooting. Customization, overclocking, wifi feathering, and the list goes on. I love rooting to see my non rooted friends heads turn when I can do what they can’t.

    I would love Root Tools. Its one that I still haven’t picked up for my X. Already have overclock. Bravo jrummy!

    I love rooting because it makes MY phone feel like it belongs to me, not the company who made it.

    It also makes my phone be able to do much, much more. All thanks to some of JRummy’s apps.

    I have almost all of them, except for Root Tools!! So I’d love to have it if possible!

  • Tdweng

    i love rooting because it gives me the ability to decide on how my phone should function, and look like, along with my desicion on what apps i want loaded onto my phone.  Also the tethering option is also a bonus i use it in a pinch when i need to get on my work stuff and got no internet connection.

    I would like Root tools so i can get even more functionality out of having root.  Jrummy the man and was all for his ROM’s when he was building them for the moto droid.

  • 1. Titanium Backup
    2. Root Tools, because I already own Droid Overclock

  • I love rooting my phone so that I can use custom roms!  Nothing is better than having customizable, optimized roms – especially ones that remove blur 😉

  • Heyimsteve029

    I would love to get root tools! Thanks for the donations jrummy!

  • Finlay1694

    Rooting is the way to go because it lets you control the device to the way you like it!

    And root tools because I’m tool! And I want to change my font and boot animations….

  • Ccontractkill

    I love rooting because its lets us set our phones free, without rooting we would all have the same phone.

    Root Tools FTW

  • Audioslinger

    I root because I don’t need CityID telling me where people are calling from. I already where my friends live!

    I’d take the Root Tools because I miss the Liberty toolbox after getting the leaked GB.

    • Audioslinger

      *know. Dang it!

    Even the bus driver pays my way now. No more Citi-Link for me B*tches.
    Now I need Root Tools to secure myself as the coolest guy at my improve class.

  • Rooting my Android device is what makes it mine. Choosing a ROM, possibly a theme, font, etc. That is what makes Android, Android.  

    The app I would choose would be Root Tools, I used something similar on my OG Droid, and have yet to replace it on my Thunderbolt.

  • Crawldad12

    I love rooting because I love having the ability to make my phone look/act like however I want it to. I love rooting and hacking! And I would love root tools!

  • Lolitsnoah

    I love rooting, like what kind of question is this? I tell all of my friends to root. Rooting makes me feel actually in power of my device, I for one love that i am able to overclock my processor, it shows me that i get more for my money, a metaphor for this is like adding extra stuff for a car to go faster, enhancing it’s power. I also love that i can change the framework that i don’t like from stupid skins on Motorola and htc devices (sense, touchwiz, and sense etc.). 

    I for one would love to have Droid Overclock

  • Petersen5

    I love rooting because you can get all the apk’s and leaks of new builds early! 

    I want Root Tools.

  • Invalidbassist

    I root for overclocking and customization!

    Root Tools please

  • Cabraswell

    I love rooting my phone because I can use Titanium backup to back up my app data so I don’t have to drive myself crazy replaying Angry birds and Alchemy. I would love to have Droid overclock as I’ve been wanting to overclock but haven’t purchased an app yet.

  • I love rooting my phone because it allows me control over my device and unlocks the full potential of the phone.  Rooting also gives app developers a more complete platform to develop great apps and gives additional motivation to do so.

    I would love to win a copy of Root Tools.  Thank you JRummy!

  • Dan

    I enjoy rooting because it puts me in control of my phone and what it does.  It delimits it!

    Regarding the apps, my preference is Root Tools.

    Also, JRummy is the man!

  • and i love droid life

  • gunner8168

    i love rooting and hacking almost as much as cheese

  • P.S I think I would prefer the Droid Overclock. But Root tools would be cool too. I’ve never had the opportunity to play with that.

  • winnkid

    I love rooting because it allows even more flexibility that stock Android, whether changing themes to overclocking, rooting just makes it better.

    I would love Root Tools!

  •  I prefer rooting simply for the fact that it makes me feel like a god. I can set it up however the heck I want.
    No UI’s to hassel with.
    Cell phone companies. “They may take our lives, but they’ll never take…Our Freedom” …except Motorola. Curse you Motorola!

  • Jrummy is the man!

  • Dan

    Q: Why do you love rooting your Android device, and which application you would rather win?

    A: I love rooting my device because of the freedom it gives me. My buddy who just bought a new white iPhone asked me why buy a ‘Droid’ when you can get an iPhone?  I simply stated that when I pay $199 on contract or even $500 off, for a device I want to have complete control.  If I want a custom boot animation so be it.  If I want a custom ROM so be it. Root gives me the freedom to change and fix the personal problems I have with MY device. Now if only we can get some Moto unlocked bootloaders.

    I would love either or but I see Root Tools being more useful for my current situation. 

  • Never rooted my Droid X…To scared of Bricking lol…About ready to give it a try though! My friends have all their Galaxy S’ rooted…Time for the Droid X to prevail! =)

  • Andrew

    Rooting is amazing for the simple fact I have complete control over my phone I am running gingerbread watching netflix =)omg nd I would love roottools since I have overclock

  • lecodecivil

    I love rooting my Droid because it lets me use Wifi Tether and other great apps which wouldn’t otherwise be possible.

    I would rather have Root Tools, it sounds like a custom-ROM-in-a-apk.

    Thanks!

  • Chris Ferrara

    Rooting is better than magic. It can turn something thats borderline useless, like a Nook Color, and turn it into a machine with a real use. It can take an old device and breathe new life into it, getting some more out of your investment. In short, its the best thing since (or better than) sliced bread. Root Tools would be lovely.

    I initially rooted in order to get rid of bloatware. I love being rooted now so I can install customized builds of Android (with which I don’t need to worry about bloatware anymore anyway. =P)

    I would rather have a copy of root tools, because I want to start delving into even more customizations to get my phone working exactly as I want it to.

  • padme

    My Droid X just needs to look awesome – I SBF’d back to Froyo last night in hopes of Gingerbread today, and I can’t stand Blur and its ugliness! So of course I would like Root Tools!

  • Aaron Sys-Admin

    I love rooting my device so I can take advantage of all the awesome custom ROM’s and themes that developers like jrummy, drod2169, adrenalyne, jcase, bgill and others all make available to us for free.

    The potential with root capabilties allows the android OS and the hardware it runs on to perform even better than the stock options that carriers provide.  I would rather have droid overclock; it is in my opinion the best overclock utility/app available and comes with an even more impressive GUI so users of any level can use it.

  • Raptor007

    I would really like Root Tools, and the reason I root is to push my Android devices to their limits.  If its not custom its not for me.

  • Anonymous

    I love rooting because it keeps my device up to date, prettier, and more secure quicker than the manufactures and carriers can churn out an update.

  • James

    I love root because I love choice. Rooting gives me choice and unlocks the power of my phone. I would rather have Droid overclock because I love speed and i love Droid.

    So I can have full customization & control over my phone, why the hell else?…oh ya, & so I’m able to win free shit from you in contests like these 😉

  • IsellDroids

    I love rooting my phone because I love being able to do whatever I want with it. If I wanted a manufacturer to tell me what I want, I’d buy and iPhone. Instead, I get to root my phone and do WHATEVER I want (custom roms, adjusting clock speed for performance and battery life, use programs like CacheMate to open space, Titanium Backup, I could go on and on!) — in other words, my phone is always a reflection of me, and I can change it whenever I want, which is almost like getting a new phone!

    I’d love to get Droid Overclock, but don’t think it supports my DX2 yet, so would take a copy of his awesome Root Tools.

  • Firelight

    What if I already paid for both?

  • I love rooting my device for a plethora of reasons.  I can get rid of bloatware, insanely improve my phone’s battery life, have the option to overclock if I want to (custom kernals ftw), get rid of stock manufacturers UI if I so please (and I do), test out awesome custom roms from the developer community, and just get the full functionality that I want out of my phone.

    Between the two apps, I’d take root tools personally.

  • DroidX_Owner

    I love to root my Android device because I can.  There really is no good reason except I always want more than what I currently have. Better, Faster, Sexier.  Therefore I think I would rather have Droid Overclock for my Rooted but still stock Droid X running Froyo.

  • I love rooting because of guys like jrummy. They make these incredible software like his Liberty Gingerbread rom which give you infinite options as far as customization and personalization. They see what power users want. Something that seems lost on these big companies like motorola. 

    We want to make these devices ours! 

    I already have Droid Overclock. Unfortunately I can’t afford to buy everything JRummy’s got out there so I would greatly appreciate Root Tools.

    Rooting is great because it allows the user to make their device their own with complete customization. Als, because rooting is not possible on an iPhone and Android is far more superior for that reason alone. 🙂

    Also, the app I’d rather win would have to be Root Tools. I would love to be able to install custom fonts, set different boot animations, among other things I’d do with Root Tools.

    Thanks!

  • Why do you love rooting your Android device, and which application you would rather win?
    Why? because i love to have the option, even if not always using it.

  • Jonathon1289

    I love rooting my phone because its frowned upon by the carriers and manufacturers (Love breaking the rules so to speak). Root opens up a whole new world of functionality, as well as allowing to explore and figure out how the device works (I am a geek, tear it apart and fix it is the way to go).

    i would love a copy of Root Tools because I already have SetCPU and QuickClock Advanced.

    I love rooting my device because then I can truly make it mine. I can install a custom ROM (Liberty 2.0.1 FTW) on my Droid X. I can use metamorph to theme various aspects of my phone. I can overclock it to get more power. I can get rid of all the bloatware, to speed up my phone and improve the battery life. I can backup all my apps. And the best part is that it has given me a hobby to enjoy. 

    I would love to win Droid Overclock. Already bought Root Tools, it rocks!

  • M4tt 03

    I have a rootedphone because…

    A. I love the ability to get rid of the bloatware.

    B. I also like the ability to install rooted apps that unlock my phone further.. ie. (Root explorer, titanium backup)

    C. I also like the ability to flash custom roms/kernels

  • Tsteege

    Rooting to me, takes me somewhat back to the pre-canned computer software days when you really had to have the drive to learn how a computer works. (I miss that sometimes)  Rooting is a way to learn about the OS, programming and the devices.  My OG Droid is kept alive for me just fine by all the great root options out there, but Root Tools would be my choice.  Thanks to the Dev and DL for this and all the great giveaways this week.

  • iamaLlama

    Sadly, I love rooting to show friends w/the i*hone can’t do. Love the customization of it, the Android community and the addiction of flashing find to see which one I like most. That’s said, I bought Root Tools and one other of his programs already but would love either of the two offered for my wife’s phone. Jrummy’s stuff is legit!

  • Tgambitg

    I love rooting because I’m always trying to make everything I own have my own personal style to it… All of my game systems are hacked/modded, every phone I had prior to my Droid has been modded in some way… Rooting gives me the control I need to do the things I want. Root Tools would give me even more control in an easy to use package!

    I love rooting my phone because it lets ME use MY phone how I want to.
    It let’s me use Titanium Backup to back up my phone the way I want.
    It lets me use Autostarts to manage what I want to start at boot time.
    It lets me use Auto Memory Manager to fine tune my memory management profiles.
    It lets me use CacheMate to easily clear all of my caches when I need to.
    It lets me use RootExplrorer to do what I want to anywhere on MY phone.
    It lets me use Copy/Paste to copy and past from anywhere including images.
    It lets me use AdFree to control what ads I see.
    It lets me use KM Launcher to switch virtual keyboards based on orientation.
    It lets me over clock and under clock my Droid to save battery with OverclockWidget.
    It lets me use OSMonitor to monitor MY phone and KILL any process I want.

    It lets me use various apps to take screen shots of MY screen.
    It lets me type su in Terminal Emulator and give me a “#” prompt so that I know that I own my phone!

    I would prefer Root Tools, but would take Droid Overclock as well.

  • Patryn150

    Got a Droid1 (got it on launch day, 11-06-2009) that I learned to root here.  I like it because it gives me far more flexibility in controlling what precisely is installed on my phone.  Additionally it lets me get more up to date ROMs that may not necessarily be built for my phone as a real release (I.E. Gingerbread) but provide features that are handy to my day to day usage.  

    Root tools would be the app that I am aiming for!

  • Anonymous

    I root my Android phone because:

    1. It makes me feel like I’m smarter than people with unrooted phones.

    2. The benefits it brings. E.G Chainfire 3d, Voodoo sound, Titanium backup and a host of others. (NETFLIX!!!)

    I’d rather win root tools.

    The reason being I would be able to take my phone to the highest level I’ve ever pushed it. With that comes bragging rights and the huge sense of satisfaction that buying my phone full price was well worth it.

    I root so that I can have access to the full potential of my phone. I bought Droid Overclock a long time ago, and to be able to overclock and underclock automatically based on various conditions rocks. Some of the things Tasker can do are amazing, and would not be possible without rooting. I go for automation and customization, and much of those just aren’t possible without rooting. I’d love to win a copy of Root Tools.

    In today’s world, I feel phones have become an extension of personality to some of us.  Just like cars, fashion, music, etc., a phone might say a lot about who we are.  I love rooting my device because it gives me the ability to make it my own and different from any others.  It allows for wonderful communities like this to flourish and bring people together that would probably never give each other a second glance if seen on the street.  That, and like my cars, I need speed.  In the words of a famous person, “I wanna go fast”.

  • Jasonlee6342

    I would love to have the app droid overclock because my favorite part of rooting, besides customizing, is boosting the processing power of my device. Must go faster must go faster

  • I love rooting for the speed boost I can give my phone…
    And thus the ability to play Dillo Hills…since it requires Adobe AIR to
    run…and AIR isn’t exactly friendly with anything above a soundboard.
    The Custom Skins…
    The added features that ROMS provide…
    Everything.  Freedom.

    Jrummy is a fantastic dev.  He is a little sloppy on his customer
    service (letting us know what is going on) but none of us hate him for
    it.
    I personally own EVERY app he has made…even though most of them aren’t something I’d use.
    I would just rather “donate” in a matter where I at least receive a little “purchased” button in the market…rather than nothing.
    I don’t care which application.
    Roottools would be cool.  I have a friend who’s phone I recently put LibGB on.  He’d be stoked to get a free application.

  • I love gaining the ability to make my phone look however i want it to. Every time I change something on my Droid X, it’s like having a new phone! New font? Sure! New boot animation? Why Yes! Honeycomb on my Nook Color? Thank you very much!

    I love the freedom that comes from rooting my phone. The concept of having an “open” operating system is to be free to make changes to it and make it your own; but without unlocking your phone through rooting, you are confined to the options that the OEM and carrier allow you to change. Want to get rid of that bloatware? – root it. Want to make your boot animation into an Apple Deathstar and watch it explode? – root it. Want to give yourself some functionality, like tethering, that your carrier locked away from you? – root it. The list goes on and on. Rooting opens up a world of possibilities on your phone, and really allows the power of Android to shine. …rooting is kind of like Burger King – have it your way… and that’s why I love it.

  • Chris Attia

    I can say without a doubt my #1 reason for rooting is the ROMs. I love having choices and options when it comes to operating systems, and with ROMs, that all becomes possible. Plus, it’s a pretty cool to be a step ahead of my friends, who are either stuck at 2.2 or 2.1, while I’m running a cool 2.3. If I were to choose between the two, I’d definitely got for Root Tools, to unlock more options and customizations for my phone.

  • daveywoodard

    Rooting gives me the power to so anything I want with my phone, making the phone better than stock and not having to wait for the carriers to release updates to android. Roms make my phone more enjoyable and useful. Coming from an *phony, rooting made my phone even more of a powerhouse. I have had the OG droid, and now the X and have rooted and Rom’ed both phones. Up to date software, overclocked processors defiantly made both phones a lot more useful. I have overclock already on my X, but root tools would be a great addition from an amazing dev.

  • Josh Kramer

    I love rooting for 2 reasons. 
    One is backing up my phone. i had to get a new phone under warranty, so I backed up with nandroid, rooted my new phone, and restored the old image. Didn’t need to change any settings, redownload any apps, or setup my homescreen!The other is tethering. I don’t use it at home, and I don’t use it for huge amounts of data. All I use it for is FTPing to my web server and working on my personal website while in the airport. It makes those long waits bearable.

    I love rooting my Android devices because it’s my way of “sticking it to the man” .. the man being my carrier who doesn’t like phones being unlocked, and Apple, who doesn’t like Android 😉 Without root, I believe Android blows iOS out of the water, but rooting is definitely the tastiest icing on the cake!

    I’d like to get my hands on RootTools (but Droid Overclock would be awesome too!), I love freshening up and changing around the Xoom (have already built three themes, and change almost every other day)

  • I love rooting my phone so I am able to change my fonts, bootscreen and user interface on my phone.

    I love rooting because it really solidifies all that android really is, android is the only os that really supports open development, and rooting is the pinnacle of that. Roms, themes, overclock, bootanimation, etc. are really awesome too. I’d really enjoy a copy of droid overclock.

    I love rooting because it is MY phone, i should be able to do whatever the hell i want with it. Custom ROM’s? OC? New Boot Video? Heck ya!

  • RV_Rikard

    I root my phone so I can have *control* over my D1 and Root Tools would be awesome!!

  • I love being able to customize my phone to fit my style and what I use my Droid for.  It has won over many Iphone users because my phone does what I want quicky.  They joke that I have bluetooth in my head telling it what to do while it is still in my pocket.

    Overclock please

  • Kutztownhockey16

    I love rooting so I can customize it how I want… I would love to get Droid Overclock since I already have Root Tools

  • Michael

    The point of the android OS is to be open, root access allows that freedom for essential apps like titanium backup. If i bought the phone, i should be able to do whatever I want with it! Like overclocking, *Wink, Wink*

  • Landon Nimmer

    gotta say I love rooting because it unleashes the beast within all of our devices!! I would like to win Root Tools FTR!!

    I love “filling in the gaps” that can’t be done any other way.
    A simple thing like taking a screen shot requires root.
    In the PC world, we’re always told, “You must have a good backup.”  Well, the Droid is a VPC (very personal computer), so why isn’t there an easy way to back it up?  There are many, but they all require root.I would rather win Root Tools.

  • I love rooting my phone because of the customization.  I also enjoying flashing new ROM’s and seeing all of the new features that the developers are able to put out there, especially when they port a function over from a different phone and adds that into their own ROM.

    I would love Root tools key.

  • The main reason rooted is to put custom ROMs on, they make my phone feel like a totally new one and is the reason I haven’t upgraded to a newer phone and still in love with the Droid Incredible… Root tools please 🙂

  • M1ghtysauc3

    I love rooting because it turns my penis into a light saber. Overclock please 🙂

  • Best reason to root: Not having to depend on Moto to get the lastest code from AOSP on my droid. (Root tools)

  • Pakiser

    I love rooting my device, because it puts me in control of what apps I have, how fast it runs and it’s overall appearance.

    Since I have already purchased Droid overclock I would rather win Root Tools.

  • MJZ2112

    Would love a copy of ROOT TOOLS
    I love to root because it allows me to have nearly limitless customization ability on my device. 

    Thanks Kellex and JRummy for the great work 😀

  • Jaredmoore47

    I love rooting my device because it gives me the freedom to change the look and feel of my phone and I can personalize it to look the way I want. Also, the ability to flash custom roms to increase the performance of the device makes it a great thing for me. I would like droid Overclock please 🙂

  • Teng247

    I love rooting because i hate bloatware and like my phone running smooth.  I would rather win the Droid Overclock

  • dirtytofu

    I love to root my device because I want to free Willy! *ahem* I mean my Droid X!
    I wants the Root Tools!

  • I love rooting my device because it gives me something to do, it always keeps me busy and intrigued! It lets me say “Droid Does” and actually MEAN it all the way! And I can gloat to my girlfriend’s face about it 😛 I’d love a copy of root tools to customize even more!

  • I love rooting because it unlocks and lets me customize my phone the way I want…. I would love to have Root tools… 

  • Dman27

    I love rooting my device because it gives me the customization that I can change to my preference when I am on the go! I already own JRummy16’s Droid Overclock app and it is magnificent. I would like to please win the Root Tools app because I do not have that yet. 

    Also, I must give Droid-Life another special thanks for not only making it possible to root my Droid X, but for this fabulous and generous week! Keep up the great work!

  • Joshua Dudash

    I love rooting my Droid1 to be able to get rid of all the crap that OEM’s put on there. 
    I am a PC system builder and this is the next best thing to changing out actual hardware on a phone.

    I would LOVE to win Root Tools.

  • Shavers80

    I really like rooting because it allows me to customize and make my phone my own. I spend endless amounts of time on my phone, so its nice to be able to personalize it. If I win I would like droid x overclock.

  • Anonymous

    I love rooting my D2 because in Australia, “rooting” means something different than it does on the Droid Life site.  I think I’d like Droid Overclock most because I like my fast.

  • Jl92880

    I Love Rooting because I like to customize my devices and not be so restricted by Mr. Steve Jobs. Rooting gives us so many options to tweak and toy with our devices. It is a hobby…let us be free yo!

  • Anonymous

    I love rooting my phone because it lets my severely outdated OG Droid stay up to date on this rapidly moving platform. I’ve had Gingerbread for months now, while others are either just getting it or still waiting for an update. As such, I’d much prefer Droid Overclock :D.

  • Pilotbluemike

    i love rooting my device because it has provided me with a new hobby. Something I never thought I would be able to do, as I am not the most advanced tech user ever. However after doing a lot of research (and killing a lot of time at work) and figuring it out on my own rooting has given me a sense of accomplishment I couldn’t get anywhere else! 3 devices rooted later and I feel like an old pro! Its a lot of fun to mess around and gain access to a device which probably wasn’t meant to be messed with in the first place.

    Root Tools looks like an awesome way to step up my customization game! 

  • Anonymous

    I love being able to trick out my phone any way I want. That being said I’d like Root Tools please.

  • Mark Krel

    I rooted my phone to install Custom ROMs. I can’t afford to switch phones every few weeks (sadly) so the ROMs are to keep the phone fresh for the length of time I have to keep the phone. Thanks all!

  • JQ

    Root Tools for sure!
    I love rooting b/c it remains true to open source, allowing for removal of crap bloatware and bloated crapware.

  • Getsome122

    JRummy is the man….. Already have root tools and a few other of his apps. Being rooted means freedom to make my device what i want it to be and unleash its full potential.would want Droid OC to put on my Xoom when i root and kernel it this weekend….

  • Anonymous

    I like the changes I can make that require root-roms, overclocking, etc. I’ve already got droid overclock so root tools would be pretty sweet

  • I love rooting, because it allows me to make my Android device mine.  I can remove bloatware and add the things I really want on my device. Root tools is my app of choice.

  • Timothy Kennedy

    I root my phone to get rid of all of the bloatware that verizon feels the need to install. That and the fact that the devs out there are better at making roms for phones the the inhouse devs at moto :p
    Root tools would be great, I already have dorid oc.

  • FFMedic

    Why do you love rooting your Android device, and which application you would rather win?I LOVE rooting my Android device because it allows me to have the freedom I deserve with a device that I purchased. It also allows me to delete all of the bloatware that comes pre-installed on every phone nowadays. I would much prefer Root Tools so that I would be able to even further customize and personalize my Android device.

  • Djspikezz

    Good luck people! I bought all his applications! 🙂 love them!!! Jrummy16 you are loved keep up the great work!

  • I need full control.  I’d love to win Root Tools!

  • Aaron

    I love rooting my phone for the custom software that our fantastic dev’s dev! Droid Overclock is my app of choice.

  • Brady

    I love rooting my device because it lets me modify it to my liking and remove all the extra crapware that I never use.

    I would rather win RootTools because I already have Droid Overclock and LOVE IT!

  • Being a Unix admin in my past, running Linux on my desktop, I feel the need and right to root.  Root Tools would be a perfect addition to my toolbox.

  • Dennis Marquez

    I like rooting cuz I like control. Makes the device more personal and makes it feel like my own and not like I borrowed it from a manufacturer. I prefer the Droid Overclock as I have already supported the dev by purchasing his Root Tools 😉

  • Will

    I love having total control of my device, especially for the ability to install custom ROMs when Motorola can’t get it right.

    Remove Bloatware and customize my user experience to fit my needs. Would love to customize with Root Tools

  • I love to tinker with my phone.  I’ve gone through 5 different ROMS on my OG Droid and finally settled with PE 5.0.2.  If I had a choice, i’d go with the Root Tools app.  

  • i love having complete control over my device. 
    droid overclock

  • I love rooting my device to have the control to put whatever I want in it however I want it. Not to mention the advantages that it brings to some apps. I am comfortable winning either of the apps since I would put em to work immediately.

  • Jesus Otero

    I love rooting my, scratch that, ANY device because it gives me power. i feel like i can do anything whenever i root them. i made my brother get a thunderbolt just so i can root it (which i did) and when the inc2 gets root, im going to root my mom’s inc2.
    also, i would like Root Tools 😀

  • Mcneilmoe

    I would like to win root tools!

  • Leearmijo91

    rooting gives me the chance to rub an AWESOME phone in all those apple losers’ faces, Root Tools please 😛

  • PriestSyrinx

    I love rooting my phone because it allows me to get the most out of it.  Don’t need to worry about manufacturer-mandated UIs or apps, just whatever I want on MY phone.  Would prefer the Root Tools over the Overclock, as I already have SetCPU…

  • I root, therefore I am.

    I already own Root Tools, so Droid Overclock would be preferable. 

  • Anonymous

    I LOVE rooting because I can unlock all the awesome in my phone… and its the easiest way for me to poke Steve Jobs in the eye!

    I would LOVE to get a hold of Root tools!

  • I love rooting my phone so I can use android like it was meant to be used, open. Root tools would be my app of choice.

    • Where

      Woooo I love rooting too!

      i.e.

      I love when programmers copy open sourced Google code…. then complain
      because people use their “hard” work, and people are copying “their”
      hard work. When really they are just trying  to make money off of the
      copying of Google apps….

      Please pick me! I think i deserve one of his “hard” working apps.

      Not good enough to actually get a job with Google, but feels entitled to
      charge like an animal for his apps. Putting this strong hold on give
      away, so people flip out and feel they need to keep Android “open”
      sourced and “rooted” like it was meant to be! 

      So thank you JRummy and please keep of the great revolutionary “money hungry” work! 😀

  • I root to give bloatware the boot. Lol. I would rather have Droid Overclock 

  • Mcneilmoe

    jrummy is man! i am running Liberty gb 0.5!
