Hi, I recently dropped my 1st generation Moto Droid, some nonsense got disconnected and caused the touchscreen to stop working, so I got an HTC Thunderbolt. Shortly after, I turned on my droid to see if I still had a text message in there with some info I needed. I had forgotten that I had factory reset and wiped it, so it was not there. (I was able to get into some of the features by putting it into car mode with a magnet and then using the d-pad to get to the home screen). Anyhow, during this, I DROPPED my droid AGAIN, and miraculously it started working. So I did what any sensible person would do- Root it. Now I have a rooted droid that I'd like to use just as a general multimedia/secondary communication device by taking advantage of wifi, but it won't allow me to do much because every time I try to access the market to get some apps, it wants me to link to my google account. Which is fine, except no matter what I do, it has trouble connecting to the google servers which makes me think that it wants my phone to be activated even though I've set it to do everything with Wifi. Is there a way I can either force it to work and link to my google account, or perhaps bypass the market altogether and download apps from my computer and install them that way? Any help is appreciated. Also, this is my first post! Woo! Thanks in advance to anybody who has any info for me.
