Just like the iPhone was jailbroken to allow users to install unofficial applications, the Motorola Droid has now been rooted by a well know Android modder called Cyanogen.
What this means for Motorola Droid owners is that can have administrative rights and the ability to control everything on their Droid handset, much like a jailbroken iPhone, Droid users will be able to download widgets that would allow them to overclock the Droid’s processor and install themes.
You can also add multi touch features to the Droid, like the ones found on the Droid Eris, like pinch-to-zoom and other features.
You can find out full details on how to root your Motorola Droid over at the AllDroid forums, if you do decided to root your Droid, make sure you follow the instructions as you don’t want to end up bricking it.
