    Welcome robo!!!!!!!!!!

    Glad the forum helped you out last night....look around for more things to do now that you're rooted...

    I suggest SholesMod Updater.....

    Make sure you have Unknown Sources checked in Settings, and then on your Droid....click here.

    Hi Rob. :welcome: to the Droid Forums. I had my phone rooted but I removed the root for the upcoming update. Which doesn't appear to be upcoming when they said it would. Oh well, enjoy the forum.:)

    No you can run it from your app drawer just like any other app that you have

    Remember when you first launch it, it will ask for root permissions....make sure you check "REMEMBER" before you click on "ALLOW" and then just follow directions and let it do its thing!

    Thanks again

    I ran sholesmod 2.0.3 and it almost feels like a new phone. There is a little bit of a lag, so now onto overclocking.

    Welcome! 2 posts in and you're already rooted!
    You must be one of those 'reading' types! (We have a lot that would rather just post a duplicate) Glad to have you. There's so much info on this forum, a lil reading will provide you with a wealth of info!
