Great thread, really helpfull in sorting this stuff out!
Thanks for putting this list together.
Can I add that a .tgz file is simply a .tar file that has been compressed with gzip? In fact, those would ordinarily be named .tar.gz and .tgz is a commonly accepted abbreviation for that (and works well for systems that only handle up to 3 character file name extensions. ) It is used for far more than Slackware installation packages.
You could also describe root as a concept that goes back to Android's Linux heritage. Root is the name of the super user account included on virtually all Linux/Unix systems. A normal user typically has control of their own files and limited access to network resources. A super user (typically root) can modify most things and has full access to network resources.
This was very helpful since I am new to the forum
Outstanding thread. This is helping me understand the terminology used for this phone. Thanks very much.dancedroid
This helps A LOT! Although reading through all those terms made me feel like I was studying for a quiz. Ha ... time for some more learning.
There was also another thread in here somewhere which talked about what to do when you first got your android phone (launchers, apps, themes etc) I saw it once and I've been looking for it ever since.
Can anybody help me find it?
If you get a chance, can you add tethering. Rooting and tethering I think were the two most used terms I saw when I got my phone and joined the forum. But the list is great!!!! Thanks!!
Thanks for the list, new to the modding of my D2 and I am very sure this thread will come in handy.
