Sorry, I know what you mean, though some companies really do want to
prohibit changes. They go out of their way to make it difficult.
At any rate, one reason to avoid rooting the device is if you're using
it for LiveCode testing. I haven't rooted my tablet because I want to
know how my apps will work on a standard installation (and that's how I
found out that Froyo isn't a very good candidate right now for LiveCode
Android apps.) Given the fragmentation among Android devices and that
some mods really are like stock releases, maybe that doesn't matter so
much but I've avoided rooting just in case.
