    Soooo whats up everyone out there. I am new to the forum... have only poked around on this since last night.

    Me:
    I am a fan of both mac and pc. The droid phone is the first time I have been back on a PC format since college. I got the Incredible because it looked rad and I could have a smart phone that was comparable to the iphone on Verizon!

    What I have:

    My laptop/only computer is a MacBook running OS X ver10.5.8.

    Phone is a Droid incredible 2.2

    What I have done:

    Rooted my Droid incredible 2.2 last night using the unrevoked site.

    What I want to do:

    install Nandroid backup

    install update recovery tool

    install a custom ROM - which will let me take off all of the verizon firmware apps (Amazonmp3 etc)

    install/use overclock - to speed this up

    figure out tethering not sure how it works but sounds like i could make my
    incredible a router and log on to the internet from anywhere with my laptop and incredible together

    MEET DROID BABES!

    Really the phones seems like it can do a lot. The open platform is limitless in comparison to iphone setup. I just don't know if having my mac laptop as my only computer screws me or what!

    Lots of questions and need everyones wisdom and advice.

    Thanks
