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

    My phone took a relatively modest drop last night. The screen went black and wouldn't respond. A reboot has the screen coming on, but displaying nothing and the phone otherwise not working. I can not boot to recovery. I am not knowledgeable enough with ADB to know how to connect with that, or see if I even can. I do have it installed and have used it before with instructions. Is there a chance that the phone could be restored that way, or is it DOA? Could I possibly back it up still so it's a very recent image, or also likely no? Any instruction/help would be greatly appreciated. Anything else that I haven't thought of for fixing the phone would also be greatly appreciated. I did try plugging it in to the charger sans battery, and nothing.

    If the phone ends up being dead I may upgrade. I'm not sure yet because I kind of want to wait for my upgrade to use on a good LTE phone, but who knows when they'll have the service available in my area (Milwaukee, WI). I also had my Droid humming along how I wanted it and don't want to upgrade to a phone that can't do the same. I had it rooted and running a ROM to be as close to stock as possible with wireless tether, busybox, overclocking, SPRecovery, and I was running 2.2 without any sort of bloatware or Blur, etc.

    If I were to upgrade, whats the best phone out there that will be able to run 2.3, and be rooted with all of the above features, sans bloatware and a manufacturers interface. Dorid 2, Samsung Fascinate, what do you guys think?
