    Ignorance is NOT always Bliss..... (sigh)

    A friendly hello to everyone I'm delving into the completely Unknown territory of a Motorola Droid phone. I've taken on the task in order to help a friend with his phone. Unlocking/flashing for use with different carriers is at the top of my "need to figure out how to do it" list. I also need to get an idea of what's available to do with/to this phone? Personally I've an iphone and am Mac to the core. I'm pretty familiar with jailbreaking and it's jargon. But the bit of research I've perused for the Droid, has left me feeling quite the ignorant noob! lol So if some kind soul here will point me the right direction, maybe offer a quick summation of key pointers....etc. They will be the recipient of my most abundant sincere gratitude!! Just as a note: I have to say I am pretty impressed with what I've seen of the Droid so far. And I'm Looking forward to learning what it can do. And hopefully I've come to the right place to do just that Kindest regards to all!

    to the Droid Forums. If your Mac has boot camp and Windows you'll be OK. If you have a virtual machine like I do, well, you better find a PC somewhere. You can do almost the entire procedure on your Mac. There is a small piece of it that needs to be done on a PC and that's using RSD Lite to add SPRecovery.

    I see you already have somebody volunteering to help. Come back if you do need additional assistance.

    Welcome.

    PC running XP??? Aww man, by the time I type this, u will probably already be rooted..



    XP is probably the least problematic, trouble-free OS to use for this.

    The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.

    Okay the Stupidity reference most likely applies to me ATM. j/k Ha Ha But, am I going to need a USB cord to connect directly to the PC? (Which I don't have since I just picked up the phone last night--ugh) Or can it be done via WiFi or Bluetooth? thanx
