Sorry, lots of questions, but figured it was better to put all in one thread versus starting a thread for each category/question. I apologize in advance for any redundancy. 1.I'm a total noob to android, and don't know what many of the abbreviations/acronyms or terms mean. I am only listing the ones I've come across and don't know so far. PLEASE ADD ANY YOU THINK I WILL NEED TO KNOW. They are: OTA RFS Flashing Overclocking Skins (I sorta know what they are, but not exactly.) 2. UI's and Rooting: I am not a total technotard, and can navigate a pc decently, but have no idea where to start here. I know Kelmar posted a link for GB I think....but see that there are others and need some info on each as far as the pros and cons to each UI. Please post any that I've missed as well as why you like what you're using. I am looking for smooth, quick response when moving between apps/screens, etc, and the best web browsing. I have found that I web browse more than I realized. I know there's: Gingerbread Altered Beast Humble Gummycharged Also, if there is a link somewhere for rooting for dummies that explains everything, I'd love to for you to post it! For example, I know I need to root, but have no idea how to back up my phone yet. Once I root, I have NO idea what to do next. I have no idea how to install and use ROMs. Browsers: I'm using Dolphin HD right now. Like it pretty well, but don't like that I can't get back to the top of a page without scrolling all the way back up. Would love to hear what browser you're using and what you like about it. Launchers: I'm assuming I still need to install a launcher after I'm rooted. I know there are several different launchers. Again, would like to hear about the different launchers. As I said above, I need to learn how to back the phone up and also how to wipe??? I am using swype keyboard. Like it okay......still learning how to use it, but not sure I want to keep it. What's the difference in the keyboards, ie, I see that GB has their own KB. Messaging apps............what do you use? My daughter says there are better messaging systems than what's stock. I had no idea LOL. Obviously I'm a supernoob, so feel free to post any links that you think would help. I just need to find the easiest way/place to learn how to do all this stuff! I appreciate all the help.
