I'm New


Hello, my name is Joe Maples. I have recently rooted my Droid X. I was wondering if anyone could help me out and let me know what the new capabilities of my rooted phone are. Are there any aps that I have to get now that my phone is rooted? Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Thread starter
I just went to the link you posted. None of that stuff made any sense to me. I dont know anything about this stuff. It was like I was reading greek. What is a gingerbread or a Rom? i just want to do cool stuff with my phone. Any tips?


I do have tips.. ask these questions on that forum and someone or I will answer it. We love newbies. If anyone is not nice to you, we don't take that lightly.

You'll pick up the lingo in the "All Things Root" forum quick enough... it's easier than it appears to be.

Gingerbread is simply the newest version of the Android OS released by Google. Each version is named after a sweet treat. 2.1 was Eclair, 2.2 was FroYo (Frozen Yogurt), 2.3 is Gingerbread, and 3.0 is Honeycomb.
