Howdy. Quick intro: I got an Ally some years back and really liked the whole Droid thing. Don't really care for the other smartphones myself, so when I upgraded I went with the Droid 3. Love it. It has been a great device for me. I actually found this forum while doing some research on rooting, and liked the info I have found. I will be doing the root thing this afternoon probably (just waiting for some answers on another post before I dive in.) Great place.
