A noob trying to grow
After doing several nights of research and crunching numbers and stats I decided I wanted to root my phone.
I consider myself a power user or a tinkerer like Jerry says in the podcast. I'm always looking to customize my device further until I realized I couldn't go any further.
Anyway, the 5 minute process of rooting got stretched to about 30 just trying to make sure I didn't do anything wrong. (Taking notes, watching YouTube and reading from the forums) but in the end my phone was rooted! But now that I've got root, what should I do next? I don't know a lick about custom roms or kernels, but if it's as easy as rooting the phone I'm ready to dive in when I'm off work tomorrow.
Basically I want to add cool stuff to my device. I want to change everything I can to make it my own. I downloaded metamorph but found out I couldn't do anything without the themes or files. I played with the titanium backup for a couple minutes and installed adfree. Other than that I'm looking to get deeper into the customization thing. What's the best Rom or kernel? How do I change icons in the notification bar? I'd really like soft keys at the bottom. Phil talks good about cm10, maybe I wanna try that out.
Any help or ideas would be appreciated.
