So I decided to get a Droid X on Verizon and of course the smiley guy that sold it to me knew absolutely nothing about the deeper workings of Android and just showed me the very surface stuff. So now I have tried to mess around with it and know I need to do some of this "root" stuff but a few friends have put the fear of gawd in me about bricking my phone so I am not sure how aggressive I can be with this. Basically I want to do stuff like get rid of the bloatware on the phone like the Amazon MP3 and make it so the Kindle app doesn't load all the time etc. What would the first step be to take to be able to tweak the phone that wouldn't at the same time risk bricking my new toy. If you have any links or threads you can refer me to please feel free to pass them on as well. Thanks in advance!
