    Question: What is PDANet? Do I have to download it? Or is it part of the driver package on the phone?

    pda net is a tethering program that will connect your pc to your phone with an app called FoxFi (or PDANet, which is the older version.) it is not included on the phone.the reason i mentioned it in the other thread is because it gives the most compatible driver for the Awe to allow it to be detected in adb mode properly. the drivers on the phone do not contain this appropriate driver

    I am looking at your tutorial video on Youtube. On your screen when you push the superuser, etc files over you have under My Computer the N800 link. I have CD Drive (E: ) USB_Driver. And that opens up to Linux, Mac, Windows. Where do I push the files?

    You need to enable sd storage. You currently have the Install Driver selected.
    Go to settings/connect to pc and select Media Device (MTP) should show your sd card now

    Lemme know how well everything is documented, would like some feedback if it works well enough and easy to follow. Did you get the rar I linked in the other thread? Or the link from the video? I plan on taking that down and make a new one

    I have a rom available with a new kernel, the kernel shown in the video is outdated and that issue has been noted a lot by others. Thats why im gonna take it down. You should really read the comments (and this forum).
    Try the rom HERE instead

    Theming isnt THAT difficult, but it is a lot work. I'm not entirely sure how I would have to implement it but it seems that I will have to rely on making flashable zips with the themed setup. It would be really awesome to do and I DO have an Associates degree in Visual Communications (or Art...VC is what my college called it) but it may take some time. I'm not entirely sure what people are looking for exactly. Colors? Fonts? What do you want themed? The ability to a change themes on the fly (the most difficult task)?
    I'll make a thread and see what is wanted to get a better idea...

    Inverted Play Store is actually already a thing. I really likr dark themed Google packages because while it may just seem like a small thing being a different color but actually they can improve battery life a bit.

    Already contemplated those and will look at what I can come up with.
    Refer to my "So you want themes..." thread for continued discussion on this. Try n keep the forum clean

    Yeah, white causes the pixel to be "on" while black is the opposite, since it is a lack of color. :D

    Me again. My daughter got her phone wet, so we replaced it. Trying to root her phone again. Have it connected as a media device, but the adb devices prompt does not show the phone. I try connecting as "connect to PC software, and adb recognizes it, but it shuts off and does nothing when I do the reboot-bootloader command. And fastboot devices does not work.

    I don't know about you, but I'll describe to you what I did. I fiddled around a little bit to get all the drivers to install, but luckily they did all install directly from the phone, I didn't have to download or anything. Try the install driver option in the connect to PC menu also. I disconnected and reconnected several times from USB port to make sure drivers were installed. Now for the rooting, I honestly have to suggest just using Cydia impactor with your phone set on "connect to PC software" option and REMEMBER to enable USB debugging.


    Edit: You said ADB is recognizing it in Connect to computer software mode. In that case just download Cydia Impactor and let it do its magic.
