You will have to download the rom you want onto your SD card, reboot into your recovery, do a wipe (and should also do a nandroid backup incase), then flash the rom from your sd card.

I know it's a vague description for you since you probably don't know much on it, but take a look at this thread it has some directions within the first post and some good help within the thread:


If you need any specific help, look around first on that specific forum cause all answers are there, but if you can't figure it out just ask, i'm just sparing myself the hassle of writing out a full guide right now.
Also I forgot to mention, for that specific super d 1.10.3 rom, the directions for that is a little different:

You will have to download the DRC83_base_defanged.zip AND the rom you want onto your SD card, reboot into your recovery, do a wipe (and should also do a nandroid backup incase), then flash the DRC83_base_defanged.zip AND THEN rom from your sd card (then reboot from the recovery menu into your new rom).

And some things just so you know. The white and black versions just mean basically the theme of it, white is white bar on top versus black. And ram hack is the faster of the two, but if you need 3D gaming you have to get the non-ram hack or your 3D games ONLY wont work (regular games will).

I think that is a little better explanation of the process for the specific super d 1.10.3 rom :)

Unfortunately no you can't have live wallpapers on 1.6 aka Donut roms, only on 2.1+ (but performance of your phone will be less, as you probably have noticed).

And as far as the locksreen, same situation as the live wallpaper, but I suggest looking in your market for the app "lockbot", it has a lot of different options you can choose as your lockscreen.

If you're interested in a little more customization, take a look at themes here:

Just make sure they are compatible with the exact version of your rom, and with that being said, you should check back once in a while on the threads of the rom you are using to see if any updates have been posted since they usually update them.

And to flash the theme, you just download to sd card, boot into recovery and flash with NO WIPE and reboot (unless directions for that specific theme differ).

And no problem, glad to be of help. I know the MT3G sucks compared to all the new droid phones so just helping out.

EDIT: i didn't really use the lockbot cause I don't want it, but I read some of the comments and they vary, so I don't know if you'll like it or not but it's still worth a shot if you're interested.

You have to re-install it like you did before.
Or did you try it and it failed to install?

How is that you can "tether" your phone for your laptop to use the internet?

Doesn't take much time if you follow everything right.

And, basically with the tether, once you root it, it gives your phone the permissions (or removes restrictions) to use the internet you are receiving on your phone and transfer it to your pc or laptop. It has to be rooted because if T-Mobile allowed it on stock phones then their data network would be getting k!lled.

I've used the USB tether, which is direct connection to laptop that gives internet, and the wifi tether that gives off a wireless connection from your phone that your laptop can pick up.

I wouldn't recommend it if you aren't getting 3G connection though.

I didn't experience this firsthand but I've read many times that the regular method won't work on the new DMD64, so you are correct.

But is it possible? yes it is, but just requires many more steps and longer process, one of the solutions that someone said they used was the rooting method involving the goldcard. There is a guide for goldcard on theunlockr...

Like I said though, I didn't experience this firsthand or try it for DMD64/goldcard, so I can't offer much insight on how to do it, but if you are confused by the guide I could probably explain the technical stuff a little more.

Well, you could possibly brick your phone lol, but other than that, i'm a.ssuming thats the worse that can happen.

Unlockr is pretty easy to follow, just i've heard to stay away from that method but everyone on here is saying o use it for the simplicity... so I guess Imma use it again.
Imma try to do it here in the next few days. Need that Android 2.0.
