    Hi everyone. My name is Randi. I've had my Droid 1 for a while. I tried to root several times with no luck (went the "easy root" method eventually...not the real thing though!!) Anyways, thanks to your wonderful forum and motocache1 (I think he's a God lol) I was finally able to REALLY root. Thanks to his explanation of renaming a zip file, it finally worked. Adding the.zip I was creating a .zip.zip file the whole time. THANK YOU MOTOCACHE1! dancedroid
    I've been "lurking" in many forums for a while now and, honestly, this forum is the only one I've ever had a desire to join.

    I've been rooted for a month or so (so,so happy to finally have my wifi tether!) but now I know it's time to go on to bigger things and figure out roms, kernels, etc... I'm using astro manager (well, not really too much because I'm not too sure what to do with it!)

    I know one of the first things I must do is a backup of some sort. Also, my battery life's been an issue so I will look into underclocking (even though overclocking is what I'd REALLY rather do!) and I'm hoping to find a great camera/camcorder but I really am excited to get an understanding of what the possibilities are out here.

    Bugless beast, clockworkmod, cyogen, astro vs rom manager, superdialer, snes, wii?, but the basics....rom and kernels are where I need to gain a knowledge in first!

    Also, if anyone has an opinion on the Droid 1 verses the Droid 2, Droid X, HTC Incredible....I am going to add another toy to my life :)

    Thank you for your wonderful forum!!
