Android-wise I was an early adopter, pre-ordering a G1 back in 2007. I had it rooted and running custom ROMs before it was a one-click deal and before NANDRIOD backups were easy to do! It's definitely less scary these days.

Having since had HTC Sense and Samsung Touchwhiz skinned devices, and always ending up rooting them to run stock / Cyanogenmod ROMs, I've decided to go all Nexus and currently have a Nexus 4 & Nexus 7.

comment Which system files are safe to delete?
The data and system partitions are separate, so removing data from /system won't give you any more room on /data. I think you would need to flash a different SPL with a different partition table.

comment Useful or cool Tasker recipes
Shame this one is closed, it would make a good community wiki. Tasker comes up in so many answers - it's a real problem solver!

comment How to set up Hotmail as exchange ActiveSync on HTC Droid Incredible?
I spent ages trying to solve this for my wife on her Desire (also with Sense). In the end I gave up and had her Gmail pull her Hotmail through POP and now she does everything through her Gmail client. (I know this doesn't answer your question but consider if it's an option for you. We've found the Android Gmail app far superior in any case so it's really worked out better for her this way)

comment Formatting internal storage harmfull?
You shouldn't format it with Windows though, if that is what you are asking. Do a wipe / factory reset on the device itself, then reflash the ROM.

comment Enforcing no synchronization with Google
The option definitely exists in 2.2 & 2.3 - might be worth thinking about installing a custom ROM?
