    Welcom to the forums demofox, you've come to the right place. Any tricks and mods really depend on what you're trying to accomplish. I would recommend learning your stock droid inside and out as well as finding what apps are currently offered to your liking from the market. The droid is a pretty awesome device out of the box.

    As far as hacking your droid there's a ton of info here in the forums so make yourself at home and read, read, then reread. It's good to learn all the common mistakes before you have the opportunity to make them. Just by reading through all the hack forums you'll know when you're ready to start hacking.

    None that I would recommend. As far as protection goes whenever you download an app from the market read several reviews first, and always check the permissions that each app has over your phone and make sure they pertain to what you are downloading. Also the app ratings combined with number of downloads will indicate wether the safety/quality of an app is proven.

    Well then...

    First I would recommend reading ALL of the stickys in the hack section of the forum.

    Then I would recommend using Math3w's guide found HERE to root and get Bugless Beast installed on your phone(plus much more). I have tried many roms and always seem to come back to this one, it is very stable and always has the latest stuff included.

    Math3ew spells it out pretty easy and maintains support for his guides so if you find yourself in a bind he(and many others here) can help you out of a pickle.
