    I want to make a How To on backing up with nandroid, installing a ROM, and installing flash 10.1.

    I had trouble finding those things and had to look in many places over days to find them, understand them and install them.

    If I can't contribute with money, I might as well do it with knowledge :)

    Thanks for offering your experience to the forum.

    Are you asking where to put/post the "how to'? Or are you asking what the layout should be, or how to do screen shots. Sorry...I'm just trying to figure out exactly what you are asking for.

    I'm slow sometimes . :)

    If its just making a post, do it just like how you started this thread. Feel free to start a new one in here: Hacking FAQs - Droid Forum - Verizon Droid & the Motorola Droid Forum

    As HDTV asked, if you have questions about how-to post a how-to, let us know:)

    Also, see if post 13 in the first link in my signature is something similar to what you are looking to do.

    Well I found something a couple hours ago. Apparently there are categories I don't see on here. Like hacking help for example. Or the selling category. What I am trying to do is almost assuredly in there.

    ????That has never been there. My god rooting, installing a ROM, theme and kernel. Icons, etc.. would have been so much easier with those available. Oh well, I figured it out.

    I need to go look at those. It's like a whole new website now.

    Some 'How-To' sections may also be under 'moderation' in that a mod/admin must approve every post...not sure if that is what you were encountering, but they do exist. :)
