    andriod newbie here - just got my galaxy ace hours ago

    what should i do for the start ?
    should i root my phone ?

    is there any apps that is essential and it is a must to install them ?

    i heard the smartphone itself cannot play some sort of video in some sort of formats. no flash too. any substitutes for these ?

    can we use our own music/songs for ringtones ?

    can we use our own wallpaper instead of those pre-installed ?

    Research rooting before you jump into it. If your system version is 2.1 or below then flash wont work at all. You can use ringdroid to make ringtones out of your mp3s. And you can use any image file for wallpaper. Not sure on your devices resolution but you want to get close to it for best results.

    i see my version is 2.2 ... so i guess flash player can work ?

    hmm, as for rooting, i read up some reviews and it seems to be quite risky though ... still considering whether should i do it or not ...

    as for the screen brightness, can it be adjusted ? i can't find the area where i can adjust it ...

    thanks for your help

    Flash only works on ARM7 CPU's... like the OMAP series that Moto uses, the Hummingbird from Samsung, or the Snapdragon by Qualcomm. Your Ace has a Qualcomm MSM7227 CPU which is an older ARM11 that just can't handle flash acceleration.

    Other than flash, everything else should work pretty well.

    You should find screen brightness under Settings-->Display
