What is the baddest, coolest, thing you can do on a Moto Droid without root access??
PDAnet. Internet on any computer anywhere with your phone plugged in USB or bluetooth.
most baddest thing u can do:
YouTube - Droid Apps
in my opinion
talk to someone on the other side of the planet?
Ooh Ooh, I got this one... This is for the win... there will be NO responses better than mine.
Ready? The baddest, coolest thing you can do on a Moto Droid without root access... is to root it.
What exactly is "rooting" your Droid? I see people talking about having rooted their Droid, but no one ever says what rooting is or why they do it. Can someone please explain?
Well, you start with a glass bottle. You take a paper towel and roll it, then stick it down into the bottle, then allow it to expand. Put your droid between the glass and the paper towel, then fill the jar with dirt. Make sure not to over-water it, or you will kill it.
In all seriousness, though... there are literally hundreds of threads floating around here on how to root and what root is, and every one of them is quite descriptive. Most of them start with the exact same statement you just made, too.
BOOYAH! We have a WINNER!!!
(High 5s, chest bumps, and knuckle-punches all around the forum!)
You don't need root to use PDAnet.
I'm using it on an unrooted 2.01 Droid.
GDE Home is sweet!!
Well Shazam!! You got me! Yes, I should have searched before posting such a ridiculous question.
Also should have expected the answer I got. It was a good one.
lol You, my friend, get +rep for being one of the few around here with a sense of humor.
call your mother
I know, I am too. hes asking about the coolest thing you can do without root access.
What is the name of that apparently with the 360 apparently?
Wow! I meant 360 app... auto populate, wasn't paying attention.
Tell it to "navigate to x" and it will translate your voice into text, search for the business nearest you matching what you said, navigate you there with turn-by-turn directions announcing street names, then show you a street view of the business when you get close. All with one click and your voice.
i would vote for Handcent SMS
Coolest thing? Well, all the navigation stuff is pretty slick.
But my favorite is Sound Hound. Sing to your phone and it identifies the song.
Every time I sing to my phone,it force closes until I stop. Damn thing is such a critic.
