I'm so lost.
Ok, well i got the droid a week before it came out and been on this site about the time it came out. I saw AdamZ's smoked glass theme http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-hacks/17714-themed-rom-smoked-glass-w-white-clock.html
and i want it. The only huge ass problem is... I have no idea what to do. I am reading the instructions and what i need to download and when I try to unzip files I cannot. are the zipped files supposed to go right onto the droid? Also I know it must seem like a dumb question but in order to do all of this it needs to be rooted. even before nandroid goes in and everything....i will appreciate all help and direction.
Unless you get someone to help you, if I were you, i'd leave it alone. Everyone says if you're not absolutely sure you know what you'e doing when rooting, don't mess with it. Just my two cents.

I'm going to have to agree with Nick. Move forward ONLY when you feel confident you know what you are getting yourself into and fully understand what you are doing. Poking around in the dark so to speak is not something you should be doing.
Know also that rooting your device will void the warranty.
I'm not saying not to do it but again just know what you are getting yourself into.
here's a good thread to start, it has a good walk through on how to root and such.
I'm trying to do this too, and none of the files in there work anymore.

Guides - Root Your Droid
They do a very good job of explaining all the various steps and ideas (i.e. blocking OTA ect.). Also the guides are VERY well done for beginners (copy and paste the commands).
Rooting is amazingly easy. Most of the stuff is easy to load up. The developers made things pretty user friendly for us non-geniuses. You'll probably want to root, get roothelperpro, install all plug-ins from that and it should be simple from there. Took me about 10 minutes of real work to go from non-rooted to running 2.1
