    1st Post. Excellent forums guys, it's exciting to see such a vivid community.

    I am new to the Root scene, and am having a good time so far. I recently switched to the DROID from my Eris, and thought it a good opportunity to learn about rooting and ADB, using my Eris an experiment. Successful on that front I'm working on rooting my 2.1 DROID tonight.

    First question: I checked around and couldn't find much/anyone on this but it may be because I don't know how to ask the right question.

    Can I ADB pull HTC apps off my Eris and Push them to my DROID? For example, I enjoy the functionality of the HTC People app over the stock contacts on the DROID. Can I mix and match?

    Feasible? Legal?

    Thanks!

    Wont work. HTC apps are all heavily tied to the HTC framework. There is a senseui port but its a little less than functional at the present time.

    Figured as much; seems a lot easier to remove rather then to add the Sense stuff, I guess it is one advantage to my Eris, O well good thing there isn't much to Sense I miss.

    Appreciated.
