    I'm from southeastern Louisiana (yes, I am a Cajun). I bought my R2D2 becuase my son said it was "cool". And it is. But I don't like the beeps, peeps, boops and whirrrs of the theme. I am here to learn how to remove and replace the R2D2 theme. However, my research at this site has led me to learn much about the Droid OS and its capabilities. I have enjoyed reading so far.

    By the way, the info and definitions (SBF, Rooting, Bootstraping, ROM, all those arcane, mysterious phrases) seem to be scattered all over the place (or perhaps it's my lack of experience). I guess my question is "Does anyone in this forum have an organized, start to finish, "if...then", guide that includes all of these processes?

    I love this site, but I am an old man. Please don't be to hard on me if I err.

    Thanks to all,
    gumbocha

    Small world. Back in the day, we spent many weekend nights in Metairie at Sharky's and stumbling down Bourbon Street. Enjoy the forum.

    Small world, indeed. I played guitar on Bourbon Street back when Moses had diaper rash, or so it seems.
