    you could add bootloader
    android recover/ stock recovery
    you have directions how to get to recovery, but just under factory reset, but there are more options
    wipe partition cache and install update zip both i've used
    Clockwork Recovery, bootstrap, rom manager and
    CWR options: wipe partition cache, battery stats, install zip, wipe Delvik cache, fix permissions, etc
    or link to a post or thread that has explained these already

    I have posted a link to your FAQs a few times already

    Thanks! That really means a lot! Would you like me to write these sections, or would you like to write them yourself, and be cited?

    You could check The DROID Wiki for those, though. But I guess a wiki isn't really useful for most users.

    Thanks a lot! I think I cited you in the citation, most of the stuff I learned on here was from you. And your write ups.!

    Yes, thanks. 2 points though:

    1) I agree with G.Y. that a wiki really is the way to go, as you put more stuff in, it is easier to organize and search. Perhaps edit this into her droid wiki.
    2) Just pet peeve on *228! "This should be done at least once a month, to make sure that your phone is updated with new cell towers in your area. Sometimes it can help your signal strength and other times it will have no affect. It just depends on if your carrier has gained any new access to cell towers around your location." The last sentence is right, it's all to do with new roaming agreements, not new towers, so i think MOST of the time this has no impact. Certainly "at least once a month" is too much unless you live outside the verizon standard area.

    Alright, I'll make that change, and I'm really not sure how to edit wiki's as I'm not an avid wiki user, but G.Y., if I have included anything you have not, or would like to quote me, I am more than glad to agree to that!

    could add " *228 if you are plan traveling outside your normal area" could save you from getting in a dead zone
