    Just wanted to say hi to everyone in the forum!

    I've actually been reading quite a lot for the past few days and I guess I just wanna lay it out here why I joined the forum..

    Why I joined the forum:
    I've actually been an android user for almost 3-4 years now. Currently, I am in possession of a Samsung Note 3 and a Galaxy Tab S 8.4. I actually joined this forum to seek help on things I want to learn on (rooting, ROMs, extent of root users and so so so much more. Btw, I have been curious for probably a year now but getting scared it might brick and actually risking that and not knowing what to do with a rooted phone hinders me). And yeah, I guess I am already sure that I want to root my device and get to know more and as much i can about the android in general. But the thing is, reading on the forums from different people with different phones and different perspectives on it is just plain confusing. I have to be honest that I won't take the time to go from thread to thread because I too, like many of us, have other things I have to do. I actually come to this place to actually somehow look for a "mentor-mentee" relationship on what my devices can do. I actually haven't check if that already exists in this forum but I guess i wont be taking the time as well to search for that. And tbh, I am also interested in sharing information to someone "new" like me now on how he or she can maximize his or her android experience once I actually think i have everything together. So, yeah. LOL. I said quite a few. So I guess, im looking forward for people to reach out to me on how they can help me and probably answer my questions :)

    TLDR. Joined to get help on rooting and getting to know my android better and willing to help once i do know how to. :p

    Welcome to the forum

    I have an idea you came to the right place. I'm not the right person for what you need but I'm sure one will be along.

    Welcome to DF @Leibog! I pretty much started on DF the same way you are. I actually spent almost two years browsing without even being a member bc I wanted to root my Motorola droid. The interactions and information was so plentiful that I rooted & rommed my droid without ever having to ask a question (chevyno1 ss version roms were my favorites). The support and interaction in this DF community was so complete, I was able to do everything I needed. Eventually, I had a question I needed to ask so I became a member. As you explore, you get to know the members, their expertise and exactly where to look for what you want.

    I have to say the reason why DF was always my go to place for all android-need-to-know/want-to-know was because no question was ever treated as too simple. Everyone was always very respectful and helpful for everything & anything.

    Explore, enjoy and if you have any questions, jump in.

    Welcome.

    I'm ok with Samsung devices. There are some features I haven't dived into yet since the last Sammy device I owned was an S3, but I won't mind helping you look up some information or point you in the right direction. Most of us here have IT/Tech Support backgrounds so we got the know-how to at least find something out for ya.
