    Can anyone tell me once they rooted their citrus what roms they are running, possibly some screen shots. Any new info would be helpful.

    hey guys, i just got this moto citrus. phone is 1/2way decent but of course very slow. i want to kill off any garbage preloaded apps & background crap that VZ installs (bing, vz nav, etc etc) and just run bare bones.

    is z4 working ok for this thing? anything i need to know? i never owned a droid device before (had iphone3gs) so its all new to me. dont want to brick the fone on its 1st day.

    also is there any way to install froyo on this thing??

    I have this piece of crap moto citrus waiting on my fascinate to get back from being fixed from a broken screen. Well I got bored and rooted it with z4root and it was running great! Well I got a little carried away and tryed changing the fonts on it. Long story short it never turned on after it said it needed to reboot. I've been stuck in this reboot loop for going on 2 days straight. SOMEBODY WHO KNOWS THIS CRAP PLEASSSEEEEE

    I NEED A PHONE & I HAVE TO HAVE IT BACK TO NORMAL OR I'LL BE PAYING $140 SOMETHIN EXTRA ON MY PHONE BILL! Anybody with ideas please help. It keeps saying I need a update.zip to update it but I've downloaded like 8070707079687586576576 times & same shit.

    Can some please explain what this does. Will it give you FroYo or do you need something else to upgrade after you root it?

    This is for the moto citrus
