Is there a central location for roms? Where they are described? As I am so very new (only days into this) the Android world...I don't know anything... Why any one rom would be better than another.. And I am getting confused reading the topic for the one click root program as to exactly what will happen to my phone when I use it..if it works (I see many say it works instantly, and others have TONS of problems..I will be in the latter group, I am sure...LOL)
I keep reading about Gold Card...of course, NO ONE says what it is, how you get it/make it, etc... Why you MUST HAVE THIS...
I totally despise feeling like an idiot, when I am far from an idiot.. I am on forums for aviation and modeling design where I teach people and help 100's all the time.. I have built computer systems for people for almost 23 years and designed software that has won awards including game of the year on the TI back in 1985... But this stuff just has me all baffled.. and the thought of trashing my new phone that I have to have for my job (I own a service company) scares the hell out of me. But, again, as I have said, everyone I know is saying I MUST do this.. And heck, if it will make my battery last longer and unlock tethering and hotspot for me, I will do it.
I find it interesting, with this many people involved, that there is not a one stop tutorial for all this complete with who/what/why/how/etc... A list of all the software needed, how to use it, etc.. And of course, how to fix it back to normal if you hate it or screw it all up. If there is, then I am indeed an idiot, cause I can't find it after many many hours of google searches and much reading...
