    I just picked up my Moto Droid Saturday morning and I am loving it so far. I am coming from a Black Berry Curve and I am still getting adjusted to the touch screen.

    I want to root this phone and remove the factory installed apps like amazon and visual voice mail and the corp. calender.

    I having a hard time understanding the rooting process tho. :icon_evil:


    Anyway a little about me

    My name is Nic I am 29 years old and I live in Tucson, Az.

    Happy Droiding :motdroidvert:

    Welcome to the Forum...Do read up on rooting before you attempt it.

    Welcome!

    At first, like your, I did not understand the rooting process. So, after reading, reading, and reading some more I rooted. I used the process developed by Matth3W which BayouFlyFisher included in his first reply.

    When you make the transition, there will be several experts her that will assist.

    Welcome to the forum, Nic! The only thing more addictive than your Droid is this forum - trust me. Nice to have another member representing the great state of Arizona! (Go Cats!)
