Gentlemen, I am a fairly new X owner and new to smartphones in general. I have no programming background.
I rooted my phone with easy root to take advantage of wifi tether. I also installed autostarts and autokiller and followed the instructions on how to set them up. Between that and launcher pro my X is running beautifully.
I would like to be able to get up to speed and learn the basics of what I need to know to be able to use root access to it's fullest potential. I don't want to be developer, just a user. When 2.2 finally comes OTA I would like to be able to maintain root and my current state of tune, if nothing else.
