    Hi Fellas...

    Like to know if there's a place that explains all those terms like root, adb, unlocked, etc... and not just steps to do them? My new nexus one could use some "WOooowww" moment.

    Most if not all of your questions should be answered in this forum. Hope this helps.

    I'm being a night owl tonight. Normally I would be dead asleep around this time, but I am glad I could help. :cool:

    XDA Dev's don't like threads that could have been answered by searching. Nearly everything possible has been done to death there.

    I have never been bothered by answering someone's question. I have been around here for a bit and it takes all of 2 mintues to point someone new to where they need to go when I know the answer or know where to find it.

    Well, I am not the kind who posted a new thread without doing some searching. However, searching for terms like this... get me into the following page...

    Understanding Android from A to Z | xda-developers

    which does have a link to maybe a guide, a thread, nothing! :mad:
