1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    If you want to keep a stock phone but want to play around you can try changing your icons with bettercut. There are lots of wallpapers here in the gallery or you can find them on the web too. There also are various alternative homescreen launchers. Launcher pro, helix, sweeterhome, etc. The last one can let you change alot of things with how the phone looks. Google it for some premade skins out there.

    Welcome aboard!

    To use tools like Metamorph (mm) or change some things like with the notification bar's PullDown Editor tool you need to root the phone. My signature has links for the original Droid to be rooted. There are threads elsewhere for rooting the Droid X too. The news section just had a post on a one touch app in the market to help you get rooted too. For stock phones the icons, wallpaper, desktop tools (which can give you more than the 3 stock desktops you have) are all good options to play with. Poke around and if you still have questions - fire away.
