    Hello,

    I'm new to the forum and it's been really useful for me as i got a desire last week.

    However, I'm having a hard time understanding a lot of the things everyone is talking about, which is very frustrating! eg rooting, SLCD etc.

    Is there a list of what these all mean?

    Thanks!

    rooting means to hack the phone to have total control over it. SLCD may mean super LCD, not sure. Here's a good place to start: FAQs - Android Forums

    a lot of the language is just stuff that we've all made up over the years. Some of it is "online forum" speak, and some of it is specific to Android. Best plan is to read as much as you can, and if there is a specific term you can't figure out from reading...ask.

    Moderator, tell me this isn't true...:confused:

    Back to meanings of Abrivs....
    So, there is no glossary of terms?
    If so, then what a disappointment. But, I bet there is. Can you point us to it, please? (Yeah, none of the replies above are getting me there. Nice try, though.;))
