I have had my D1 for about three months and so far have loved every mistake I have made with it. Now, I guess it is time to start getting it right!
I selected the D1 over a BB Bold and now I need to fine tune to support my work. I am not into installing 10K of apps, nor music. I just need a solid WIFI hot spot to support my PC while I work in the field.
I have successfully rooted per regardless of OS version, along with loading Astro File manager, ROM manager, Titanium Backup and performing a nandroid backup? So now It appears I am ready to select and load a ROM?
At this time all I am looking for is a good ROM which supports wired tethering that allows me to access a secure site, plus keep my phone charged. I was using PDAnet, but after I found I could root, load a ROM and tether for free I said it is time to move on. I have reviewed Bugless Beast and Koush CM 6.0.0. and they both appear to meet my needs. My question would one be better than the other? I also found an app for Wired Tethering 1.4, but it could only be used with an HTC. A suggestion or a point in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.
Now, for clarification of a term or terms. I have observed the following to be used almost interchangeably, Factory Reset, Hard Reset & Wipe? I ask because, as I understand it, if I wish to experiment with loading different ROMs, one needs to clear or Wipe the sys before loading the new ROM, so does Wipe mean perform a Factory reset?
Also, is there an advantage to partitioning the SD? I see in ROMmanger there is an option to partiton. I understand the advantages for proper partitioning of an HDD, is teh same true for the SD and how would you manage this through Astro? At this point in time I would need to transfer the info from the SD to my PC and formate then partition.
I know I will have additional questions, which probably have been asked and answered. I will first search this site for an answer, before I post.
