    Hello all-

    I have never rooted a phone or anything and have always wanted to dabble with it. I had an old Droid 2 global laying around so I gave it a shot. I found and used Motorola One Click Root.

    I guess my next questions is - now what? I had read before that you can remove bloatware and things like that (a lot of VZW stuff) - but how do I do that? I guess I am not familiar enough with the process to know where to go or what to do.

    I also have read about custom ROMs and things like that - anyone have any good recommendations for that?

    For my first root - it was very easy. Any input is appreciated.

    Your first going to need to download a app called Droid 2 bootstrap, you need it to have a custom recovery so you can flash ROMs.

    I highly recommend this MIUI ROM...amazing battery life, tons of customization, and hardly any bugs!

    If you flash a custom ROM it will already be de-bloated.

    Or you could delete them manually with a root file browser, I prefer es file explorer and delete them the /system/app directory or download Titanium Backup from the market and choose to either delete or only freeze them.
