    Welcome! Good to have you with us. if you decide to root prepare by reading and making notes. If you have questions post them. Then, if you decide rooting is for you the community will be here to assist.

    Thank you guys a lot.It is kind of intimidating to be honest,is bricking an issue with droids?I kind of want to have my d2 for about two weeks to really get a feel for everything before enhancing my experience.

    This is what we suggest, get comfortable with your device first, then start thinking about hacking it - in the meantime Read - Read - Read

    Alright,I am glad you guys are here to help.I somewhat know what a rom is through the use of emulators but I do not think those are the same as the ones discussed on here.All of this is foreign to me,but I am vvveeeeerrrryyyyy eager to learn.

    yes there are two types of roms really. one is for the emulators and the other type deals with root. the one usually referred to on here is the root one.

    Alright now that that is cleared up.What would you suggest I start reading into first?I plan on seriously investigating and becoming at least somewhat familiar with most aspects of rooting.
