I apologize if these are all dumb questions; I'm pretty new to the Android hacking/tinkering scene. I've been using a Droid 1 for a year and change, and just upgraded to the D2. The stock interface on the Droid 1 never caused any complaints from me, but I'm not liking the non-stock Droid 2 elements. I'm not really complaining about performance issues, I just don't like the look and feel of most of the replacement elements.
I'm basically looking to make my phone as "stock" / vanilla as possible while exposing myself to as few risks, bugs, or headaches as possible. I'm not afraid of rooting, ROMs, etc, but also worry about investing too much time tweaking and not enough USING my device.
1. Is there any straightforward way to make my Droid 2 act like a 2.2 or 2.3 vanilla device?
2. Is it possible to use the original car home, dock home, text messaging, contacts, and camera?
3. Is it possible to sync Facebook w/ existing contacts like the D1 could do?
