    Hello, newbie here, I just rooted my phone so that I could get screenshots and maybe find an app to remove the stock apps that come on my phone that I don't want, but I was also wondering if I can get different themes and what not for my phone now? If so can you kinda people please walk me threw this if possible?

    Thank you :D

    Oh, I'm on my PC right now, but I am using a Droid 2 Global

    This doesn't really have to do with rooting but you can get something like ADW launcher and themes for it for free from the market.

    Also GoLauncher and AHome are ones I see people talk about

    I checked that ADW thing and read all the details, it sounded extremely confusing, and top 3 comments said it wouldn't open on their phones

    Wasn't confusing for me at all. Installed it, hit my home button, system asked if I wanted to use standard or it.

    Then hit menu, adw settings, themes, selected a theme.

    I think it's probably the easiest you'll find in terms of themes.

    I'm sure theirs several custom roms with themes you can use, but savage is correct. If, all you want is themes the method using a home launcher and the market will be easiest

    Well I gave it a try, downloaded a few themes but I wasn't expecting them to drop all my widgets except like 2 on some pages. The way I have my phone set up now is hard to figure out how to duplicate with this new style of themes. Maybe someday I will give it another go, but you helped for now, thanks.

    Anything else I can do now that im rooted that you know about? I had a blast with wifi tethering today. I went into Verizon and used my tether from this phone and got wifi on the thunderbolt they had on display, lol. I felt like I was giving verizon the finger. Mwuahahaha <evil laugh>

    And most of your widgys you can just long press on the blank part of your screen and add the widgy :)

    You can even use like beautiful widgets for a more suitable clock/weather widget for your theme :)

    Yeah, I know what I was doing with my tethering probably wasn't the best idea, but I felt so sneaky doing it, lol

    You said you wanted screenshots. Have you found the apps. My favorite is drocap2 because I can put it in my notification bar, pull it down and trigger it. Shooting me is nice because it will take a sequence of screenshots like a little video. I think they are both free.

    Yeah im using Drocap2 as my primary, the shoot me videocast is a bit confusing and the 10fps is not very good.

    I am also using ADW Launcher for themes, here's a screen shot of my progress so far:

    Im mainly using the honeycomb theme, and changed all the individual widgets to random themes I liked
