Some Say Samsung Galaxy S Owners Should Root, Forget Android 2.2 Froyo

Obviously and understandably, US Samsung Galaxy S owners are frustrated about not having Android 2.2 Froyo yet. With every delayed release of Android updates from manufacturers and carriers, more users are starting to consider rooting their device. Don’t know what rooting is? Here is a Wiki moment:

Rooting is a process that allows users of cellphones, and other devices, running the Android operating system to attain privileged control (known as “root access”) within Android’s Linux subsystem, similar to jailbreaking on Apple devices running the iOS operating system, overcoming limitations that the carriers and manufacturers put on such phones. Rooting makes it possible to use custom versions of the Android system such as CyanogenMod, supporting features unavailable in stock ROMs. It also allows for newer versions of Android not supplied by the original device manufacturer.

Key phrases in that description: (1) to attain privileged control, (2) allows for newer versions of Android not supplied by the original device manufacturer. While this can be a risky process, developers are making it much easier now by providing one click root methods.  So you are the panel. What do you think?
