    Been playing around with sysctl and minfree editing. This is nice! That's my quadrant on a 1.2Ghz Droid 1. Battery lasts me about a day and a half.

    Slightly tempted to pop the root cherry on my Desire.
    Any big cons to rooting and flashing a custom rom? Does the Market still work and stuff?

    Just got my first "Droid" yesterday, an HTC ThunderBolt on Verizon with 4G LTE. Already love it to death, except for the battery life, of course. :)

    Came with 2.2.1 but I guess an upgrade to 2.3.4 is coming soon.

    Okay so after reading, and then some I still haven't got my head around what I should be doing to upgrade my i5800 with Froyo.

    Would someone kindly care to take the time and help me through this... the dummy guide basically.

    I've tried afew different ways but I end up getting confused and/or mixed up because I have several web pages open what I have trying to get help from, basically if you could link me to the tools/files I will need and help me through step by step.
