im a noobie to smart phones and obviously the motorola droid. this is my first smartphone and im really impressed with it with a few exceptions. one thing that i like is that i can have the internet on my laptop and in the palm of my hand. thru this site i have learned about tethering to my comp using pda net, wich is a great app. and i have also learned about things that the phone can do, but the carrier had locked me out of. the more that i have read about what all that i can do with the phone the more that i want to root it so that i have all this stuff available. i am a truck driver and this phone is my only comucation to the "outside world" as a matter of fact i am using it right now to connect to this site, so i cant afford to screw this thing up.
i have been looking at the forum and i am totaly confused about rooting and the differtent roms that are available to me. i am not as computer savy as i once was 7 years ago before i started driving. is there a "manual, cheat sheet or something" that can explain all this to me i want to be able to change screens, fonts, operations and themes as well as give me the features that i want/need. i feel like i have jumped into a giant knot but cant find the start of the string to figure out what the heck i am doing. if anyone can help i would appreciate it. btw the phone has the 2.1 update
