    I just rooted my Droid and got to the "Block OTA Updates" part found here:
    Start Here | Root Your Droid
    I haven't completed this step yet, but I've noticed now that my GPS won't work. I've checked to ensure it's enabled. Anyone have any idea what's going on?

    DISREGARD...GPS came back..turns out it just needed a few moments after being rebooted.
    Sorry for the noob-ism.

    I think we all have those "sweaty" moments. Everytime I do something new and GPS takes awhile to lock, I get nervous about whether I broke something :)

    And especially the first time.

    It's like riding a bike without the training wheels the very first time.... It's hairy, scary, and all around nerve wracking - but within a week you're a pro....

    Also, that is one thing that has never been mentioned anywhere - that after rooting / installing a ROM, the first boot may take significantly longer and / or services may be slow to start up after the first boot....

    I think this should be a part of every FAQ on rooting / swapping ROMs.

    ha ha yeah, when i rooted it was still sorta unknown, no roms were out, i sat with root and nothing. I finally got drocap2, no biggie and then roms kinda sprung out to me after a while, and i was ignoring them, figuring its more dangerous than safe and then i figure to give it a little reading and checked it out and figured out its not so bad, not much you can do to screw it up right now
