    So, I've got a Droid 2 and I've gotten tired of Blur (like everyone else with a Moto phone) and I want to root, more specificly, to ApeX. I've looked around and ApeX looks the best to me and what I want a ROM to look like and do. So, anyways, I know that most people here have rooted their phones and enjoying their ROMs, but I have no clue as to go about doing this, I've got ApeX DL'd but, lol, I don't know where to start. So, I am asking anyone willing to help out a noob get himself started in the world of root. I'm looking for some easy to follow inastructions, wether done by you or a link to some. So, thanks for your time and I hope you can help me out.

    Hello. :welcome: to the Forum. Start by looking in the Droid 2 Hacks stickies for instructions to learn how to root. There are easy to follow instructions there.

    Asking how to install a ROM before you learn how to root is putting the cart before the horse,
