mah bad i should've made it clear. Audio Video output so my kids can watch movies on backseat screens...

If you have the case that you can get from Verizon, can you let me know how if fits with that thing on? I don't want to have to take the case off just to play emulators. It does have a disclaimer that you can put too much pressure on the keyboard, so that also makes me nervous.

Speaking of the keyboard, you guys heard that they are working on a revised Droid with a better keyboard, I believe something more like that of the Devour.

I'd like to format my sd card and start fresh.

Any info on roms like features? battery life? just general information, not technical.
rootyourdroid.info has some pretty good, and easy to follow guides and explanations, and also this thread from cyanogen's site has a collection of links too. Basically though, after you root, you have two options. I guess technically three. The most complex being you do everything from an adb shell.

The other two are you use custom recovery images (clockworkmod or sprecovery). What you use is really preference, but they are slightly different and won't be compatible due to some technical details I'll forgo. They accomplish the same purpose: backing up your filesystem, and installing ROMs, among some other things.
Some ROMs only use one recovery version, so just be aware of that. I use clockworkmod and ROM manager (both developed by koush), the latter being a very easy way to manage your ROM. I know there is a similar app for sprecovery but the name is escaping me. DM updater..... sounds right, but don't hold me to it.

Any other questions, just ask. Always glad to help.

Alright, I've posted in the app suggestions thread as well but I'm just making sure it's read since it's droid related.

My droid's in a mess with relation to reminders. I've gone through about 3 to do list/organizer/notes apps. It's like, I set a couple of tasks with reminders and it just doesn't do it. When I open the app again, all those overdue reminders pile up instantly in the notification bar. I did read somewhere that advanced task killer could be the problem so I uninstalled it.

How good is the android at closing apps running in the background? Does that completely drain the battery power if apps run in the background for a while? Secondly, my alarm stopped working. I've overslept twice and got to work late cause of this. Could task killer be the cause for this? Thanks, I'm so frustrated and confused right now, my droid was supposed to help organize my work life, not mess it up!

Great. I didn't actually@order mine yet. Never realized I needed a paypal account. Also, shipping to canada costs more then the gripper itslef. Sucks but I think I'm willing to pay that much. Looking forward to your review man! Old school emulators FTW

I hate how often companies "improve" a product in these tiny ways. I just dished out a snall fortune for this thing and the keyboard actually gets great reviews so why mess with it?

I wasn't sure how to add apps to task killers ignore list. Make@sure the app is running, open task killer, hold app you wanna ignore, a list will come up and select ignore. Then your alarm clock and to do lists should be fine.

Yeah, that's the one. That thing really helps the phone stay in your pocket, since it's so highly textured. If it works with that, I'll probably be picking one up too.

I stopped using a task manager about two months into my droid. Yes, the problems you are describing would point to a task manager killing them. Android, and linux in general, handles memory allocation and processes management well. When you stop using something, it stops using CPU cycles, and therefore stops using power, however it will remain loaded in memory either until it gets called on again, or something else needs the memory. Auto killing, or manually killing things just creates the need to load them up all over again. I've seen some people describe their phone feeling bogged down, but I can't say I ever do, and I have about 7 widgets on my home screens. Browser use will suck your battery no matter what, so that's the biggest culprit of my battery life.

With very little use, I can get ~50 hours out of my battery, and with heavy use up to 8.

Have you tried Astrid for a to-do/list program?

Yep, advanced task killer was the problem. Good riddance! Thanks for the reply. Will try astrid today, though I just discovered the joy and simplicity of using google calender in my phone. Syncs right up to my google account.
