I have looked through tutorials, but was given dead links. My friend gave me their old droid(a855) and it is not activated(and wont be for a while)or updated to verizons new market and stuff. no apps i download will work. im very new to this and every time i try to go through tutorials to root it or manually update it, i keep getting dead links to the files i need to download. despite assurances, im still wary that my phone will be bricked. can anyone help me?
