Greetings and Salutations,

My handle on the web has been Bremen ever since I read my first Terry Brooks novel. I am a 29 year old male from VA that is relatively new to the Android world. I have gone from "el chepo" phones to blackberrys to the iPhone before finally resting on a Droid 4. While I am moderately tech savvy some of this stuff is confusing to me.

I am really interested In getting one of these custom roms like CM installed on my phone. Hopefully I can find everything here that I am looking for.

Well, I am at the point where I am most confused. I have my phone rooted, and I have safe strap 3.4 installed and up on my phone. I am at the point where i need to flash a rom and that is where i am the most confused. Ive seen CM10 and I really like a lot of the features but I am unsure on how to actually install this thing. I have found a download page with a build for my phone, but there are so many different things to click on that I'm really not sure what to download. then once I download it how to get it on my phone.

Link the page here and we can help you through it...

How about the OP for the CM10 thread? Does it tell you what to install? If not I would just go with the latest.

to be honest.... I really have no idea what Im looking at with these.

CM was mentioned in another forum that I visit and I started looking into it. Once I saw the demo and some of the feature that CM offers (like free wifi tethering) i knew I had to have it as I like playing with cool stuff like that.

I have spent the past several days trying to learn all I can. As soon as I started seeing all of these different roms is the point that I got really confused.

Is there a better rom out there for my device? If there is do I need to do something different to my phone (i.e. get rid of safe strap)?

UPDATE:

I was able to get Eclipse loaded onto my phone last night.

one questions I do have is how easy is it to delete a rom and try loading another one?

Welcome to Droid Forums!! :)

In my opinion it is not difficult to switch between ROMs. Typically you need to do a factory reset/data wipe and then install the new ROM. I am not completely familiar with the exact procedures for your phone so you will need to consult your phone's section for more information.
