    Welcome, and don't feel like the Lone Ranger. You may want to go to the Forum page and look at the FAQ. There is a LOT of info there that may save you some time. I provided the link to Rooting below.

    Hi and welcome to the forum.

    My advice to you is if you're unfamiliar with the process of rooting, don't try it. If not done properly (i know there are instructions) you could brick your phone, especially if an unexpected issue arises and you don't know how to work around it.

    I guess if you root correctly that it lets you do more with the Droid, but it's not for me. This Droid does so much as it is with all the free apps, that I don't see a need to do it.
    If you spend some time just going through the forum main page FAQ, then going into the threads that sound interesting, then your learning curve will sky rocket.
