    I have Fancy Widget, Sports Tap, Pandora, and NY Times. What others do you guys find very useful?

    DroidForums is a favorite of mine. Plus Dolphin Browser, music alarm, ebay, facebook, rockplayer. One screen for the games. Also I'd recommend an app called "AndWobble". Its on the market, its for wallpaper pics. It will make part or parts of your favorite pic wobble! Very fun, very cool app !!!

    R2-D2 (D2)
    Hey folks, I am new here, and just purchased my first Droid phone. Being a huge Star Wars fan, the temptation was too much to stay away from the R2 phone. I am totally new to rooting, etc and want to learn how to do that without turning my phone into an expensive paper weight. I have seen a TON of cool screen shots on the Droid FB page, and all of them seem to have rooted their phones, especially with the Luna Theme, which looks really cool. I don't understand a lot of the terminology yet, but I hope to educate myself and move forward. Thanks, Jonathan

    1) Will any Droid2 kernal work with the R2D2 units?
    2) What kernal's would ya'll recommend?
    3) How far have ya'll overclocked yours?

    Thanks guys!
    I found a program called "Droid X/2 Overclock" by JRummy. I'm testing it on R2D2 now, so far its easy to use and works great!

    Why?

    OK, maybe I'm missing something. Why would you buy the R2-D2 D2 phone and then want to install custom ROMs (or Kernals)? Isn't the whole purpose behind getting this phone to have the Star Wars rom/kernal (I'm still not sure what it's called - some say ROM, some say Kernal). I've rooted my phone only to get rid of bloatware and to access wireless tether - not to mess up the sole purpose of spending the extra money for the phone.

    Any insight would be greatly appreciated!

    THANKS ! ! !

    I bought the phone with the intentions of doing this. I wanted a phone, not a toy.

    The media dock, the chassis that isn't dull black, and that fun feeling of having a special edition of something. Not to mention the subtle design fixes with this batch of D2's (keyboard slide, power button springiness, etc).

    I thought I'd keep the star wars stock rom, but when I got the phone, I was underwhelmed with both the SW wallpaper and (especially) the apps.

    So apparently you missed the whole point to my question. You could have bought a regular Droid 2 or any of the other Droid in the line. Why spend the extra money for something special only to change it? That would be like buying a limited edition Porsche and then repainting it, removing the engine and putting it on lifts - doesn't make sense...

    prolefeedprocessor - I understand the reason for buying the phone - I did they day it came out (took some convincing to the wife since I had just bought a BB Storm in January). I just have a hard time understanding the reasoning behind gutting it for something different.

    Thanks for the input...

    As for me, I wanted a cool ass toy that could aslo make phone calls. Truth! I love the Star Wars theme, added some extra wallpapers, etc. As for the Rom, I'm hoping someone cleans out all the bloatware crap, keeps all the Star Wars stuff and makes it even cooler.

    I never painted it, I just swapped the engine.

    I had a D1, so I know what these things are capable of. I knew the StarWars wouldn't cut it, so changed it to something more suitable to me wants and needs.

    Just ordered my R2-D2 Droid!!! going to be my first smartphone, so i'm beyond excited!

    Debating about Rooting it.
    i think the free tethering would be nice?
    also what's this bloatware stuff? how easy is it to remove?
    And is overclocking / underclocking pretty easy to do?
    anything else i should consider if i decide to root?

    sorry for all the noob questions.
