I just got my new phone 2 days ago, instantly falling in love with it. Being completely uneducated with it, I've decided to become a member of this forum. I have a strong background in computers, being an IT Tech who's fluent in Windows, OS X, and Linux
So this is just an introductary post on my behalf, saying "hi" to all fellow members.
On another note, my girl just got the HTC Incredible, and I realized that not all Android powered devices are packed with the same features. Hers looks way better, and she's got this cool thing on the home screen with the clock and weather, the snow accumulates on the screen and its just really slick, meanwhile, I don't even have a "Personalize" menu, and the status bar is fugly, its white, and I can't change it. I started reading up on everything. I know of rooting, and the ROMS and stuff, but what are they for, what's the benefit of a custom ROM or APKs? I'm a quick learner and I will eventually put together a nice explanatory post for all new users, but now, I am confused myself. Could anyone shed some light on these topics?
Again, hi everybody and thank you for being noob-friendly
