    From your column:

    Rooting — the process of wiping out the factory-installed version of Android and replacing it with a generic version — is somewhat extreme.
    You're talking about flashing, not rooting. Rooting merely means installing a superuser program to give you access to files that aren't normally available to Android users. My Android phone is rooted, and I am using the standard Motorola Droid Razr Maxx HD OS. It isn't a generic version, I didn't wipe out the factory-installed version of Android, and I didn't replace it. The main reason I rooted my phone was to be able to use Titanium Backup, a program that requires root access.

    Thanks for your columns, they're very informative.
