I have been lurking here for a while and just now joined so this is my first post. I've had my Moto Droid since last November but did not root it till two weeks ago. So I am basically a newbie to hacking the device. Installed a 2.2 ROM (Sapphire 0.7.0) a couple of days ago and have been psyched ever since, didn't tweak it at all and my Linpack score went from 4.5 (on 2.1) to over 15, and my Quadrant score is around 1250. And wireless tether works great. Now that I am gaining some confidence and am hungry for more I think I am ready to install Bugless 0.4, so have been devouring the discussion on that. Wish me luck.
Thanks to all of you who've been posting in these forums; you've been a great help to me so far!
