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

    Hey fellow droidies! Pardon my ignorance, but I would just like a brief overview of what advantages these things will do for my droid. I know there are probably tons of threads here about it, but all I have seen are just folks talking about how great it is, and with the droid already being great Im wondering...WHAT'S THE POINT!?

    Having one super model for a girl friend would be great too, but why wouldn't you want 2 of them. The point is the droid is great but even better after you root.

    No just rooting your phone will not change the UI but changing roms will.

    I think of the droid like a car. Basically rooting with the bugless beast rom is like modifying a cars engine and respective parts. Mainly for better performance/speed.
