    Hey there,

    I've already had a few unpleasant interactions with my Droid (Factory Reset to removes my girlfriend's gmail account? Seriously?), and I'm really wondering if there is a Wiki out there for it. If not, we should really make one. I bet there will be many questions on these forums that could be easily answered by pointing to a wiki help article.

    I think if you have more then 1 gmail account it allows you to delete the main one without a problem, i think it just needs to have 1 on the phone at all times, someone can correct me if wrong.

    I'm not super-interested in trying again, but at the time, I added my own account, so there were two on there, and then tried to delete hers. No go.

    Okay, I just created a test account, added it, and removed it. So that worked. But I still don't believe you can remove the first account you added. Or maybe not an account that has contacts? Even so, I think a wiki would be nice for documenting these issues.

    Bump.

    My friend used to have a G1 and told me there are a couple main Wiki's he used to really understand everything fully.

    I found the Android Wiki, but are there others that are just as useful?

    I would really like a Beginners guide to the OS functions and files, i.e. recovery .img vs nandroid backup, etc.

    These defined would help me wrap my head around everything. :unsure:

    Mastered BB OS but struggling with Android. Rooted and all that jazz but i would like to understand it vs following instructions (Thanks to all! they work!) and being a "droid" to my droid. LOL. :)

    Mine is up but the content is kind of limited right now, mostly to things I was interested in and couldn't find any clearly written documentation on. So I'm pretty anxious for some contributors :) I'm hoping once a few people start writing articles it'll just kind of take off.

    I have a lot of stuff I wrote on apps since I got my droid, and I've been looking for a wiki to put it on.

    I found other wikis here:

    Android - Dan Dascalescu's Wiki
    motorola droid faq wiki: Main

    I'm probably going to use qoncept's since it has a GNU license, but the other two have a lot of good information on them.

    Is there any way we can make this more official? Can we link to it in a sticky?

    But it's hard to be a jerk to people in a wiki :sad:

    My apologies for saying this, but there are already 3 (or at least 2 and a half) wikis up - do we need to fill in a 4th?
