    Before you can install/flash a custom rom you need to root your phone. Here is a link
    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-hacks/11102-all-one-popular-threads-read-before-posting.html that will explain. Here is a link http://www.droidforums.net/forum/re...-dummies-guide-android-terminoligy-lingo.html on terminology.

    My advice get very familiar with the terms and read several articles on rooting. Then, if you still want to root do so.

    There is a rom section in the forum that will help you decide.

    If you have problems or questions post a thread in the "Hacking" section and the community will assist you.
