    Great idea wrap! The more single threads we can point people to, the better.

    They do, by the time you have 50 comments on one page, and mutliple pages, its hard to read for some people.

    I think you should number the questions for easy reference. That way when someone is sent to this thread via a link, post #1, FAQ #x.

    Great idea and great job with this post. I think I'll save this page and point people to this when they have questions.

    You should include questions about radios, pri, prl, and other data/radio faqs.

    ROM= Read Only Memory

    Technically what we flash aren't ROM's, they're ROM images or firmwares. We flash them to the ROM.

    Suggestions:

    -Difference between governors
    -Difference between odexed and deodexed (I know this is in the rooting for dummies thread, but I usually link people to sites like this: What Is Odex And Deodex In Android [Complete Guide])
    -What's the difference between hboot and recovery (some people forget start with this simple explaination :))

    I'm sure I can think of some more later.

    Thanks for that very simple explanation. I just took that term for what it was but always had a hard time calling it that because I knew it wasn't correct.



    ALSO, wrap, you forgot one very very popular(most?) question.............
    "I am rooted but I can't get my wireless tether to work???"

    We have a thread for that almost every day....:eek::p

    Hahah! wrapkgb,

    You got your work cut out for you now, bud.
    You have an obligation to the EVO/Android community to 'quick reference' answers! Good luck!

    With all the new (and perspective) rooters out there currently, I think this post needs to be moved back up the list. Thanks for the work wrapkgb.

    Great work! Maybe add something about what AOSP and Sense ROMs are and the differences. How about something about under and overclocking?
