    i been trying out this new IM app called imo.im

    its really nice and not buggy like many other IM apps.

    you guys should give it a try if you are looking for a solid IM app.

    also... craigslist by widget is a great app.

    if you guys like flashing custom roms, i flashed a whole bunch to my droid last night, and i have to say ultimate droid which can be had for free from droidforums.net is incredible, i just added p3droids 1.1ghz kernel setcpu and launcher pro, and it's by far the nicest i've used so far in terms of speed and fluidity

    Check your notifications and make sure you mount the SD card so Windows can access it.

    trt, get rid of all the drivers and kies. reboot the phone, DISable debug mode. plug in to computer. let it do its thing. two drives should pop up, the first one will be the phone memory, the second will be the SD card. this works on my win 7 32-bit and XP. getting rid of the drivers is key.

    Got it working using debug, mass storage and mount in Windows 7, and Keis in Vista but not as a mass storage in Vista. Directions would be great if included with this phone. A quick start manual is hardly enough.

    Sign me up. Just rooted my Motorola Backflip. I feel that I can be a full-fledged Android user now that I'm no longer crippled by AT&T. :pimp:

    I'm anxious to loose my root cherry soon but I still feel I need to spend time stalking XDA developers forum until I'm ready. Honestly I'm not finding the providers rom to be too much of a hinderance for my needs. I score 6.4 mflops in linpack on this stock 2.1 sense rom.

    I really prefer HTC's phones as well, but the physical keyboard might have swayed me if I were on Sprint looking at an upgrade right now. I know there are a lot of people against it, but I love Sense UI.

    I really like sense as well. If my provider doesnt push 2.2 for my desire soon I will root and flash to leedroids desire 20a which is wicked awesome and still has sense.

    Unfortunately for me I have a bugged bootloader and I'm unable to get my Galaxy S into Recovery Mode so I'm pretty much screwed for rooting et al. Thinking of returning my phone and seeing if they can swap it for one with a working boot loader.

    :(

    Should have 2.2 towards the end of this week or next.
