LOL... Ok, I'm definitely an Android/Linux NOOB...I don't even own an Android phone yet (Stuck with the Storm1, anxiously waiting for the Passion)...lol. But I can't wait to get my first Android phone, I've been envious of the Android platform/style the whole time I've had my storm. I've been researching a lot about Android phones (which led me too the Passion), but most of all what you with them, which has brought up rooting. Now coming from a Blackberry and sites like Crackberry(dot)com and BlackberryOS(dot)com, we have a similar (but NO WHERE NEAR AS COMPLICATED) thing with Hybrids (Basically cocktails of .cod files from official or Leaked OS versions). Now I consider myself pretty computer savy and I'm trying to learn as much as I can about Rooting phones and Linux by searching forums and following the Droid root forums but I've noticed a...for lack of better words...hole in the info I'm gathering. Its like you either know...or if you don't you shouldn't be doing this. Well I'm starting this Thread (forgive me if its in the wrong section) for anyone who can post some helpful places/threads to find information to get caught up on Android/Linux to make it easier on us NOOBs. I've read a lot and see tons of benefits to rooting your phone and I can definitely say I will be rooting mine soon as I can. Please Help me from Making a $600+ paperweight.
