    Fundamentals of Rooting and Terms Explained

    OK I had a post in the new members forum that came from and HTC forum I browse once in a while. So in order to break out the information better for everyone I thought I'd separate it into the sub forums and clean it up as I promised das8nt I would. Below is some good information for people new to Android and or new to Smart phones completely. Alot is explained there that may ease some fears. Should the need arise to add to this please feel free to let me know and I'll be glad to add to the OP.

    Here are some explaining ROMs. I wrote this in the ROMs area but it never got stickied and thought it would be of some assistance to others so I am adding it here.

    DISCLAIMER

    As with many things in the smart phone industry these articles are generic in nature to help new users get a better understanding of terminology adn system basics. For detailed information on actual procedures you would use on your Atrix you should be following Atrix specific articles from reputable sources. These articles are merely to educate on fundamentals and in no way to be used for actual Atrix mods.

    Sweet! Good post!
    1- Use the search function before asking a question--it takes away from new questions to have the same ones pop up over and over.
    2- ROMS
    3-
    HACKS
    4- THEMES
    5- To root 8.3 go HERE
    I dont mean to seem rude...but PLEASE search for your answer. New questions deserve answers, and we can't see them if the same thing pops up over and over

    Thank you for this post! I'm extremely new to the android operating system and I'm interested in experiencing it in its entirety. I thoroughly read all three articles and now I feel as if I have an understanding of what's going on with rooting.

    Another great post! Going to sticky this as it should be read by everyone before attempting to modify their phone, if only for the understand of what you're about to do.

    Thanks!

    There were several other good articles in the thread I got these from but my knowledge is so limited I wasn't sure what would help here and what would not so I left them out. They were also HTC specific in some cases but if someone wanted to take the time to look em over and see what might help out here I'd be glad to PM you the original link.
