    Thanks everyone. So im at a friends and i thought i still wasnt rooted but i just looked in my apps list and theres superuser haha so apparently its working now. so from what i understand i need to back everything up (gonna use titaniumbackup unless there are any better suggestions) then look into ultimatedroid 1.0 to start out with but how exactly do i load roms? do i download it on my computer then put it into a file on my droid?

    I have a droid 2 not a droid 1 so I can't totally help you out but I will say titanium backup is a good program to use but the kind of backup you need to do before flashing roms is a nandroid backup which is a backup of the system. Titanium will backup apps and their settings/data. Welcome to the forums though, and I'm sure someone in the droid section will have an answer for you. Good luck.
