It's done. It took me many hours getting around some rather silly little errors and stuff but I have root. So let me just make sure I have this all correct... Clockworkmod Recovery is a small program that's installed on a partition on the Phones internal memory that will run right off the bootloader and allows you to easily work on your main OS partition (like flashing new ROMs, themes etc) right? Flashing new ROMs is as simple as dropping the zip files on your SD card and using Clockworkmod recovery to install them? Right. OK it's pretty straight forward. So I'm using LeeDroid at the moment and it seems alright. I've put an EXT partition on my SD card for Apps but I can't figure out how to actually put them there? Or does it do it automatically? Now, what happens if I want to change ROM? I know the process, but I have loads of apps and settings that I really don't wanna have to redo everytime I reload a ROM. Is there a way of preserving apps, settings etc when you flash new ROMs? Oh and can anyone else suggest any alternative to LeeDroid that I can check out. Just wanna make sure I get something I really like and I know there are a few around. Cheers!
