    So I rooted my Droid around 2 weeks ago, and love it so far. I've flashed the new Project Elite Gingerbread Rom, the RaidZero Recovery, and RZ Kernel. I love the new level of access I have with my phone now. I'm just kinda lost as to where to go next. So I'm asking you all:

    • What I should look into next?
    • Good Root only apps?
    • Advice on where to go from here?
    Thank you for any advice or help that you can offer.

    Well if you want to get advanced you could learn how to build your own build of cyanogenmod 7. Compile CyanogenMod for Sholes - CyanogenMod Wiki

    If you don't have setcpu yet then I would get that. I would also get root explorer.

    That sounds pretty complex, but I'm willing to learn so I will give it a look over. And I actually got JRummy's Droid Overclock app, which is similar to SetCPU.

    Also I've heard some stuff about this Metamorph theming but am not sure where to go about it?

    Metamorph extracts the apks on your phone and replaces the images then puts the apk back together. Its kind on a dirty way of themeing. The best way to theme is to use the theme manager. You install the themes like apks and you change themes on the fly. I know cyanogenmod 7 has it because thats what I run. Now sure what other roms have it.

    Ah ok I see, I'll check around the Project Elite Boards and see if they have anything similar. Thank you for your help
