So, I was an early adopter of the Droid. I left Droid in January after some spectacularly bad customer service from VZW. I then made the mistake of going to AT&T and using the iPhone. Needless to say, I missed Droid. So, when AT&T and Apple declined to honor my warranty issue on the iPhone, I broke contract and returned to VZW. Offered the choice of the Incredible (backordered) X (not yet released) or Moto Droid - I chose to go back to Droid.

And WOW! You guys are leaps and bounds beyond where we were in January! Anyone want to help me catch up? Any customization threads I should peruse? Favorite apps? How the eff does Astro File work again (or is there a better app?)
Any new solutions for the voice quality and reception issues?

Missed you guys, glad to be back.

ETA: It really threw me for a loop to have all my old apps back! Not bad, Google, not bad. The salesman was pretty confused, though. I had to explain I used to have a Droid :)

I didn't look at rooting before and...I looked it up a bit last night. I am savvy but that ish seems complicated. Anyone have a good guide? I'd love to give it a shot. What's the worst that can happen? I am sure Droid would make a LOVELY paper weight.

That said, should I eff it up - are there viable solutions other than "paperweight?"

I keep rsdlite__ and a 2.1 and a 2.0.1 SBf file on my computer just incase I 'eff' it up. So far...I have not seen a single 'eff'-up that could not be recovered from. I thought I hit a brick wall the other day when my SDCard was not mounting. Nope..there is always e Backdoor to get things done.
