In the April 2011 issue of Popular Science there is a one-page article about changing the Android system. Some of the things mentioned: Go to xda-developers.com on how to root or ROMs (it also suggested using the app ROM Manager) 1- Improve the LOOK A- Replace the Home Screen with either SlideScreen or LauncherPro. B- Kill the ads with AdFree (rooting required). 2-Improve the FEATURES A- Steam your media using Twonky B- Share your connection with either PdaNet or Wifi Tether (rooting required). 3- Improve the PERFORMANCE A- Save power with either JuiceDefender or UltimateJuice. B- Boost speed with SetCPU (rooting required). Not too bad, although when I looked at SlideScreen it was hard to find a good comment.
