How do I root android phones to get free apps from the android market place?
Answer by DSB
You have a horrible misunderstanding of what rooting is…..there is no way that Google would encourage rooting if it allowed you to download paid apps for free from the market.
Obtaining root (“administrator”, or “full”) access to the device. This means you can mount its internal memory partition as read/write, which lets you do various things: have USB or Wi-Fi tethering, uninstall applications you otherwise can’t uninstall (e.g. the Amazon MP3 store), install applications that need root access (such as AdFree), disable the camera shutter sound (simply by deleting the shutter sound file), overclock or underclock the CPU, install and boot Debian, and so on.
