    I really didn't want to post a thread about this but I've come to no other option. Google isn't helping me much either. What can I do now? Where can I get root only apps, how do I install them? What other root related things should I install, I've been seeing something about busybox, what is it and should I get it? Abd shell or something as well? Sorry for being a newb. This is surley way more advanced then a jailbreak. Thanks for the help

    how did you find out about rooting your droid? most of the time instructions for rooting will often have loads other rooting goodies.

    since you posted this is the "hacks" thread how about browsing the forum in search of some "hacks"

    Start here: Obtaining Root - Root Your Droid

    I highly recommend the bugless one. I have had no issues at all with it.

    I recommend using the Beastly Beauty over Bugless, its the same ROM just runs at 800MHz. I am using that right now except I flashed 1GHz on it. Its blazing fast. Going to test battery life on it today.

    What is the difference between the two. What is beastly set at without flashing? I have no insterest in 1ghz so 800 is good for me. All I know is I had all kinds of little issues with force closing etc with other roms, bugless = 0 issues.

    What does bugless give vs smoked vs beasty? I've only looked at smoked

    And does ocing shorten the battery life? Its already short as it is. And will it kill the phones life span?

    Let us know your results on the battery test. Are you planning to use CPU SET to create a idle low clock profile? Or are you just going to run it @ 800 MHz all day long?

    I was petrified to Root. I used to better at computer stuff when I was younger. Gave it a shot and withing 2 1/2 minutes I am Rooted and looking at the Superuser Permission icon. I just need to figure out what I am doing next. Is the possiblility to Brick my phone over or does the brick come when I install the ROM?
