I have had my Droid for 3 months. I rooted it about 10 days ago. I flashed through rds lite and used sprecovery for a couple of days. Not a problem got familiar with the reboot and recovery functions. Not hard just unfamiliar. Any way found Rom manager, and OH MY GOD. I have installed well over 10 different roms. I decided on Mr. Jrummy and his Cyan Theme v7.It is a very balanced rom . Does a good job with performance and customizations.The selection of rooted apps are much more efficient (autokiller and clear cache) than their non-rooted counterparts. Just to keep this tight,I have a custom font(Final Frontier),i uninstalled All apps that i do not use, i have 3d launcher (extremely delicious!!!), I am overclocked(800/250), I am extremely efficient(autokiller), i have a black notification bar. This list is long. If you actually saw a rooted phone in action not just the screen shots i promise that you will root and you won't go back. Thanks for all of the information. i learned alot. My phone is the ****.
