    Not quite. It involves connecting to a computer and completely reflashing the phone's software, much in the same way Motorola or Verizon would do it. Everything you need to know, and all of the links you need to do it, are here:

    The official Droid pro sbf from TBH

    After flashing the SBF, you'll need to install the 3.8.7 update (you'll either get prompted shortly after or you can run the system update). Then use aRoot to root the phone.

    ok thanks everyone for your time. I'll think about it but it seems more trouble than its worth.

    It's actually a very quick and easy process, and one that a majority of folks around here have probably gone through at least once. It's a lifesaver.

    No, it doesn't erase personal data. You do a factory reset for that. But in the even that everything is lost, you'd just reactivate the phone and Google will resync all of your contacts/apps.
