    Default Do I NEED to root my Playbook if I want to install .bar files for paid-apps?

    Hi guys!

    I'm quite new to the rooting scene, and I was wondering if I could ask a few questions about it.
    My understanding right now is that "Playbook rooting" is equivilant to "iPod/iPhone jailbreaking", such that rooting would allow me to install other peoples' paid games/apps onto my Playbook if they gave me a .bar file for it.

    Is this mainly what rooting is?

    Alternatively, let's say I can't root at my current firmware. Can I install the .bar files of paid apps without rooting?

    Really? RIM is that lenient?
    I'm liking them better than Apple already.

    Is there a site where people can share paid-apps with each other?

    There's a great place to get paid apps, accessible right from your playbook, called "App World". It should already be installed on your playbook in fact.

    This forum does not support piracy, and in fact a reasonable number of the users of this forum are developers with paid apps on app world.

    Illegal sharing of paid apps is not supported on CrackBerry
