    Screen won't shut off, soft keys have issues

    I have left my phone sit on the desk for an hour now without use and the screen is still lit. Also started noticing the last day or so that the soft keys will strobe when I press them, and will go dark whenever I touch the screen. They stayed on with the new dl09 update as they were supposed to, and only recently have I had issues.

    Figured it out, somehow nothing was checked for screen timeout. I checked fifteen seconds and all is back to normal...

    Also, never rooted, may be doing so in the near future.

    I just want to look into see what might be the disadvantages of rooting, other than voiding warranty and not receiving updates. Hate to make a new thread for a short question.

    ya no problem. rooting has no real big disadvantages other than what you just said. if you go crazy and download a bunch of roms without ever backing up your phone then you might be in trouble if you download one that bricks it. not sure how much you know about rooting but a rom is just when alot of your phones settings and appearances change that you wouldnt be able to change otherwise. your phone is completely customizable that way when you download roms. anyways back to answering your question. when you root there are a ton of apps you now have access to and your phone is fully customizable. but remember no matter what you do to your phone if your smart about it you can always fix it and send it back to what it is now if you really want to

    the best way is to just download clockwork recovery when you are rooting your phone and just as soon as you get done gaining superuser rights set up a recovery point and that spot will be there forever to get your phone back to its current state. you will still be rooted however but to get unrooted is a simple enough process.

    Like drogba said there is no real disadvantage to rooting your phone. You can always load the original software back to your phone restoring it to stock status with not much problem.
