everyone keeps telling me i should root my droid cause of all the amazing things it does. so i did. but now that its rooted the only thing i can find to do is to update to 2.1. while its nice and all, where are all the cool apps n games that i keep hearing about??? any help??? please!!!
oh i didn't know for sure about the games but thought i would cover it. anyway, i know that there are some root only apps out there cause everyone tells me about them. the problem is i don't know what they are called or how to get them. i tried google but all it shows is wifi tethering and i don't really need that cause it drains the battery so fast i just have to plug it in anyway.
I don't think any game should ever require root access.
As to what you can do, you can:
-load new ROMS
-remove apps not often used (Email, CorpCal, AmazonMP3, etc)
-change notification bar and shade color
-drocap2 for screen capture
-AdFree to remove ads from the browser and apps
-install custom recovery image
and there's a lot more, but those are the ones that pop up off the top of my head.
haha, quite the contrary. There are too many ROMs for the Droid right now that do practically the same thing.
still, I'm running a VERY good one that is 2.0.1 w/ all the 2.1 apps, and it's been optimized to run using less memory.
My Droid feels like a brand new phone because everything I do is instant. If you're interested, you should hit up alldroid.org to find out more.
ah, sweet. see this is the kind of stuff i was hoping for! im all giddy inside! i just got my droid a week ago n i don't know all of the good android sites yet. just seems like google search isn't helping me find cool stuff either???
I'm now running birdman's 2.0.1 w/ 2.1 apps and MT browser. It has been optimized to reduce the size of the PNG files used in all the apps in the OS (along with other optimizations that I don't know of). It's really, really fast.
If you're running 2.0.1, you can just flash this over yours and it will keep everything.
If you're running 2.1, then you'll have to wipe your data and cache.
Oops, I should add that this keeps the 2.0.1 launcher (app drawer vs. star wars), but has 5 homescreens. This is MUCH faster than the 2.1 launcher.
