I have a D2G that I'm thinking about rooting and installing a custom ROM.
I haven't rooted a droid before, or really done any hacks on an android phone. I did a lot of hacking on a Moto Razr I had a few year ago, but that's the limit of my experience.
How do I...
1. Get rid of Motoblur completely?
2. Get rid of all of Verizon's bloatware?
3. Upgrade the OS to Gingerbread (if that's possible yet)?
I really just want my phone to be plain Android like the Nexus... I don't want or need all the junk on the phone.
I really wish Motorola would stand up to Verizon like Apple did and refuse to let them put any junk on it.
I was holding out high hopes for the 2.3 OTA update, but looking at recent news about the Droid X's 2.3 update... it looks like VZ/Moto is totally gonna screw up the OTA if it ever comes.
Someone please help me here, I've been crawling all over the web, but I only keep getting more confused. I'm starting to think that rooting and installing a custom ROM is the only way I'll ever have a droid phone that works right.
