Hi, Everyone,I'm Bob from Texas.I've had Android off and on for several years and just went back to one, an LG Optimus Dynamic LGL38C, using Straight Talk on Verizon.This was my first weekend with it:ThursdayBought phone and put it on my ST account - felt pretty cool to have an Android againFridayAdded a few apps and noticed the phone memory was getting really full - feeling uncool'Rooted' around for a solution and found Link2SD, (Apps2SD just fills up the smallish Internal SD) - feeling kinda cool againDiscovered I needed a rooted phone to use Link2SD - feeling kinda scared nowLong night spent figuring out how to root my phone - feeling tiredSaturdayDecided to start early and root the phone, install Link2SD, and solve all my problems - feeling determinedUsed One-Click, rooted the phone and was rocking with Link2SD - feeling like I'm the ManTried to download a video and found out the Ext SD wasn't mounted - HmmmFormatted Ext SD forgetting all my linked apps were there - feeling kinda stupidRealized I had linked Google Play Store to Ext SD - feeling really stupidDiscovered One-Click didn't install ClockworkMod Recovery (and also that I should have made a backup) - feeling like I should kick myselfTried all night to find and install Google Play Store APK - feeling really frustratedTried even later in the night to find a stock ROM for a LGL38C - feeling defeated and tired (passed out)SundayFound AndroidArea51 - feeling betterFound post for One Click Root, CWM and Unlock Kernel for a LGL38C by DroidHost (AKA Hero) - feeling the Sun on my face againFound, also, the rooted stock ROM, also posted by DroidHost (AKA Hero) - feeling really happyFlashed the stock ROM and had my phone back - feeling cool againFound AreaRom Dynamic v1.0 custom ROM by, you guessed it, DroidHost (okay, I'll stop with the Hero stuff) - feeling elatedFlashed the new ROM (It's pretty amazing by the way) and set up and re-installed - feeling ecstaticI shoulda just said I did everything wrong until I found AA51.This is my way of saying thanks to all involved and especially to DroidHost.I joined so I can feel the Sun on my face, happy, cool, elated, and ecstatic instead of uncool, scared, tired, kinda stupid, really stupid, like I should kick myself, frustrated, and defeated (finally passing out). (Also so I could download the files I needed).I don't know how much I'll be able to contribute. Although I have done some tinkering with VB and VBA, I'm new to Android programming, but I want to start learning it.Keep up the excellent work everyone.Bob
