We have duplicates of bash and text editor installations, sd card partitioning tricks, /data partioning tricks, sd card mounting tricks, adb tricks for full backups of your phone to your pc, and a number of threads on script installers for things like the V6 SuperCharger, just to name a few that can be safely applied to either all phones or the majority of them.
I could easily name several more.
The advantages of a dedicated forum -
- Almost none of these efforts get refined from collaboration. A common area could solve that.
- Those of us doing this are scattered into various ATRs for phones we own. Mods are squirreled away.
- Regular users miss out because we're such a minority working out these things.
- Many that could benefit from these efforts never hear of them or may never consider that some things are not really set in stone.
It will take time and effort to maintain by users and there's no telling if it would take off or not.
Because this would be a results-oriented area for all users, not just rooters, I would see it as its own forum in the Android Discussion area, and therefore allow for future subforums if it does take off.
