    Is there a "primer" of sorts to help me understand rooting, kernals, etc? If I root, would Froyo (for example) be the OS? What's a ROM? I'm currently running an unrooted 2.1 update 1 Moto Droid. Helix Launcher. I am so n00b and confused I don't even know what to search for. What's Bugless Beast (heard it talked about in a few places)? Is that the same thing as Froyo in terms of type of program? Someone help this n00blet or at least tell me how to search!

    Edit: semajoja....that link crashes my browser. Tried it last night, too.

    It would help me, since even THOSE links were a bit over my head, to have a list of Droid related terminology to help me sort this stuff out.

    If you have specific questions ask. If you want hand holding or a step by step walk through....
