Just received my first droid phone the other day. I reset to factory, then downloaded all of the updates from Verizon. I later read that you shouldn't root the phone if you've done all of the updates through Verizon because it'll brick the phone. I'm new to the lingo and using ROMS. I want to use this phone to learn though. Can I revert back to an earlier version of the UI, then root and install a custom ROM, or have I stuck myself with a stock phone. Suggestions, links to guides, anything would be a help at this point. I can't seem to find the answers I've been looking for. Hardly anything on the phone at this point. Everything is completely recoverable if it needs a clean wipe. Thanks in advance and I'm sorry if this is the wrong place in the forum to place this. Update: I see the post a few posts down from this one since my original was moved here to ALL Things Root. I'll give that method a try. Wish this noob luck.
