    I have an lg optimus v. Its my first android phone ever. Ive had it for about 3 months now. Iam happy overall, but internal storage is kind of a problem.
    I researched and found out that you can move preloaded apps to the sd card, but only if you have "rooted" your phone. I get what rooting a phone does, but im not understanding the lingo. Roms,flash,recovery? Can someone explain these and other common root terms?
    How dangerous is rooting?
    Instructions for rooting for newbies? (Lg optimus v )
    I am very new to amdroid so,detailed help is appreciated:) thnx




    Alas, im waiting to root my phone until iget more info.

    I would suggest starting with the "All things root" subforum at the very top of this forum. Lots of info there.
