    I have had the droid 2 for about a month now, love it, but is there a way to keep a constant 3G signal without it bouncing to 1x?

    Welcome to the forums!

    3G signal has to do with your signal....

    Have you tried *228 option 2 recently? (update your PRL)

    Thanks guys! Yes, was reading and I updated after I read the post's. As I was downloading it was at 1x 2 bars, now I have 3G 3 bars. I wonder if the update helped with that?

    It allows a few extra apps on the market to run like adfree titanium backup and things like that. Also allows you to install custom roms. If you like to tweak around with system settings and remove bloatware yea rooting has its benefits.
