    All the guides i see, it states that one has to download certain things on his/her computer and then connect his/her droid to the computer... i was just wondering if instead of doing this you can just download the necessary things on the droid's browser instead of downloading them onto the comp and connecting the droid to it?

    Its just gonna be a little different on a mac than a PC but you still got the basics....and yeah certain files are OK to download from the Droid....but the only problem is whenever there are certain types of files that cannot be extracted by any of the Droid's file managers....like ROMs that require WinRAR to unpack the files onto your computer...the Droid doesn't have the abilities to do this

    I can't find anything EXTRMELY INTENSE anywhere in this thread.

    Come to think of it, I'm not sure I've experienced EXTREMELY INTENSE anywhere in my life.

    Well, except Mt. Dew maybe.
