Flash a different Rom. Look into different kernels. Change your wall paper. Just some simple suggestions to keep it fresh.

Apart from the obvious... unless you "root' the device - that's pretty much it. It's the same with any other device. :)

Yep, rooting your phone opens up a whole new world,
Glad I rooted in January. Just gotta read up and be careful and follow directions.

The HDMI full mirroring is really cool as it progresses - a work of art!

I'm using the good morning app to wake me up with my own message read aloud, followed by the local weather forecast for the day.

I really like that app. I particularly like that it reads the weather for the day. Too, too cool. :cool:

Tip for anyone who looks for it in the Market... search for "Good morning alarm." If you just enter "Good morning" you get quite a few hits. This one is by "Flywheel".

I've only been rooted since Saturday,so I'm still a "root noob" running CM7. I'm trying to hold off on buying ROM Manager Premium in hopes of 4g coming to RC1, but today is the first day that I paid for an app (SetCPU). I've got it set up based on reading someone else's post,so we will see how that goes as far as my battery life.

Other than that,I'm just browsing the Market looking for the best apps for rooted phones!!!

Lately I've been alternating using an app called WakeVoice that is similar to Good Morning, but different.... :) It is another "alarm clock" app, but after reading the weather will read news headlines. Unlike Good Morning, it does not read your calendar entries for the day, but you can choose to have it be humorous, in which case it puts little jokes into what it says such as "it is cloudy, there is no danger of you needing sunscreen today" and similar stuff. Nothing dramatic, but it is a change from the other app, and was well worth the couple of bucks for the full version.

I agree with you. WakeVoice is different and... IMO much better ! Humorous weather and RSS feeds reading are so good !
More info here : WakeVoice official website.

Get into geocaching. It's not a new thing but may be new to you. :D You can use a geocaching app on your phone to find GPS based items that are hidden all over the world. I geocache all the time with my kiddos. There are hundreds of hidden items in any given location as there are people from all over the world that play.

Here is the official app (there's a video in this link that explains what geocaching is):
https://market.android.com/details?id=com.groundspeak.geocaching&feature=search_result

Here is a free app (that I use):
https://market.android.com/details?id=carnero.cgeo&feature=related_apps

Here is another add on (that I also use):
https://market.android.com/details?id=com.google.android.radar&feature=order_history
For the radar app ^^^ people write bad review saying it doesn't work. It's not a stand alone app, it only works inside other GPS based apps, like the geocaching apps.

You will need to create an account (it's free) on the geocaching website for any of these apps to work. Do that here:
