    looking to possibly root and install BB 1.1. but I was wondering if BB retains the display an such found when I plug it into the Motorola Multimedia Dock.

    I am probably going to leave it at 550MHz to start with too.

    I would like the added features of the BB, but wanted to be sure the Multimedia dock and even Car dock (got the Motorola bundle) work well with BB 1.1

    Oh yeah and he states the you can update from any rooted ROM. so does that mean as soon as I root my OEM I can update without loosing everything I have installed? using the Update.zip method?

    yes that is correct. I would however HIGHLY recommend that you flash a new recover image and create a nandroid backup first before you install any ROMs. That way if something is not your liking you can revert your phone to the way it was before you added the ROM.

    There are a few ways to do this backup. There are apps in the market called Droid Root Pro and Droid Root Helper. Pro is paid Helper is free. This is the easiest way if you are not comfortable with ABD and linux commands all that stuff. If you are here is how to do it:

    Custom Recovery Image | Root Your Droid

    Full System Backup Using Nandroid | Root Your Droid


    Hope this helps!



    Oh and yes the MM dock display is the same with BB

    Yes I read that one too.. At first it seemed confusing, but now that I look at it again, it also shows how to do the update without data loss

    Yeah that does include the recovery image and the nandroid backup. Those directions look very comprehensive. They should be pretty easy to follow. Good luck with the whole rooting process. You will be glad you did.

    I think that thread (here) needs a bit of updating though now since the OC stuff is separately done.. I will look through them both when I get ready to root. Need to play for a couple days with it OEM I think
