    Just did the one click root.. now i have no clue what to do. i see that it's installed Superuser, but now what?

    I realize this may be stupid, but it's honestly my first droid coming from a palm pre plus and a blackberry. So someone, please?

    well depends what you are looking to do :D
    http://androidforums.com/fascinate-...-2-november-2010-6-45am-central-u-s-time.html

    for many people root is enough...wireless tether, adfree is enough

    rom manager has many of the following things in it.

    also its all at xda
    Fascinate Android Development - xda-developers

    but there custom kernels that reduce lag/improve battery life and add backlight notifications for mised calls/emails

    custom roms (not full full roms yet but still improve performance a bit)

    mods that add reboot options into power menu, increase soft key backlights

    and themes that change status bar/system colors http://androidforums.com/fascinate-all-things-root/214596-list-fascinate-themes-roms.html

    xda is great for getting stuff, but really if you have questions ask here....because as much as i love xda if you ask what they consider "noob" or beginner questions they may or may not jump all over you at times :eek:

    most of us here tend not to mind answering any and all questions :D

    Thanks so much.. I was mostly looking for improved battery life, less lag and the themes.. it's so pathetic, I actually sell these phones but have no clue what i'm doing with this.. I'll read these links and see what i can come up with. thanks again, I'm sure you guys answer the same questions over and over again :eek:

    Don't worry about, it every VZW employee is in the same boat as you :eek::D
    I have yet to find one that knows anything , other than how to active it, about Android phones. Heck they're still installing Advanced Task Killer on 2.2 phones for new customers.

    Hey Verizon the task killer API was removed in 2.2 lol not to mentions its just a bad thing to do to start with.

    BTW the best battery life I've gotten so far is with the StupidFast kernel with the SuperDark ROM. Not sure if the ROM makes any difference but its a nice (and IMO the fastest) ROM out.

    Any ways you'll catch on its not that hard once you get the hang of basics

    fwiw roms can impact battery life. the more trim they are the less stuff the have running and eating battery. but the kernel is the most important (generally)
