    Alright everyone, since I am a member on literally dozens and dozens of different forums I know one issue that is despised on everyone is when threads are created when threads have already been made that have addressed the posters concerns. So before you even use the search button, and most definitely before you post a new thread, PLEASE take a look at the threads I have in this post to make sure things have not been covered already. I will keep this post updated with the most helpful threads and most popular subjects for "hacking" your Droid. If you have suggestions for threads to be put in here by all means PM me or post a link to it. I am sure there are other useful threads out there in the "hacking" section that I have missed.

    Great thread! Not only is it good for new comers but also as a reference for everyone else.

    Just a side thought you may want to add the thread on ADB here as well

    This is a GREAT idea, it does need to be updated and to the Mods:

    I know this is stickied but something similar to this should be stuck, so no matter what fourm you're looking at, it's the first thread you see!

    I agree, it needs updating. That should be something the OP should do, don't you think? Before I stick something I ask the OP if they are going to maintain it.

    As far as putting it as a sticky in all sub forums, I can think of a lot of places where it isn't necessary. If people want information about hacking they should come to the hacking forum.

    Great thread- one updating note; the wifi tethering thread is fairly outdated, though the necessary information is in the thread if you search later pages (post #435 was what clarified everything for me).

    thanks for the post :)
