Hello all, My name is Cam. I have recently upgraded from a BlackBerry Curve to an HTC Thunderbolt. Wow what a difference! I have been reading alot of threads and fourms about rooting, over-clocking/under-clocking, ect. I love my Thunderbolt its really fast (or maybe just faster than what I am used to) but I know someone that has a Droid X for sale and he only wants $50 for it. I thought wow I could use that phone as an experimental project with rooting and overclocking (becasue I dont want to root my brand new phone just yet) but I am afraid it might be stolen. I havent seen the phone myself but he says as you power the phone on it ask you to sign in or create a Google Account. Now I know that you can track your stolen phones with a google account and other apps available on the Market but I was wanting to know if there is anyway to find out if the phone is stolen (without taking it to the Verizon Store) and if it wasnt stolen could I still root and tweak the phone by connecting to my Home WiFi or tether it to my TBolt. I know I am really new to the Android world but I want to become knowlegeable. If anyone could answer any or all of my questions it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for any help!
