    Hello all,

    I run (hence the super original username...). You may be familiar with the site, but if not, it is a little site I started a while ago to help people with rooting/modding their devices. What once was a humble little site is now a site getting over 2 million hits a month and does a bit more than just rooting how tos.
    I am posting here today because, frankly, I need help. There are too many devices out there for me to cover in any sort of timely manner. We do have one person helping me, but we need more. I figured Android Forums would be the perfect place to find qualified people as I myself use this forum and know the caliber of individual that posts here.

    So here is the job:

    Mobile How To/Tutorial Writer

Person will also be responsible for creating videos to accompany the how to's and sending them in to be edited and uploaded by the editor-in-chief.
