It's finally happened; the Motorola Droid has been successfully hacked and jailbreak-ed. Users who so desire will now be able to do whatever they want to their young, nubile smartphones. Zinx Verituse, a modder, has already published a rooting script and disseminated it via the wide, open Internet. (The Register) With a phone like the Droid, there's not nearly as much urgency to hack as there is with each new iPhone addition. There aren't a ton of awesome apps that have been denied approval by the App Market and now only see the light of day on hacked phones. Of course, there are other advantages of a rooted phone. You can install multi touch on your Droid, add in new widgets or customize your UI.Rooting a smartphone usually voids the warranty, and can be dangerous for your device. This isn't something to sit down and try unless you've got a lot of time to spend reading up and learning how to do it properly. You can break your phone forever if you mess up. That said, if you use some caution and study the process thoroughly before hand your phone should get through it alright.
