    Thanks FoxKat, that means a lot coming from you! I didn't learn all of that by myself though... it is everything I have learned from DF forums. A special thanks to yourself, MattyP, Sydman, SallyC, 94lt1 and many many others!

    Thx for the link, second post and those following made a lot of sense. My question:

    After reading the difference, would it be prudent to install Bootstrap, keep a copy of a freshly rooted phone in the non-safe "partition" and operate from the other? (or vice versa).

    If not, is it fairly simple to switch from safestrap to bootstrap some point in the future, if I get brave enough to start flashing roms?

    Any advice appreciated!! BTW, Matt's utility is at 1.0 of 1.1 GB, so I am steeling my nerves to try the directions you gave. I think FoxKat is right about this possibly being sticky material!!

    Speaking of, I think FoxKat, MattyP, and Sydman have a secret battery calibration that allows them to get more life per charge than the rest of US!!

    WOW!!!! That was finer than froghair! Rooted and not bricked!! (give me time!!)

    @ TisMyDroid: Great write-up in Post #89 of this thread!! Only thing that didn't match was when I ran Voodoo, the last box was not checked. Will try to research this, and figure out why. BIG THANKS for the very concise instructions, was actually easier in my opinion than my first FDR yesterday.

    Now I see why no one likes Back-up Assistant, it keeps opening every time(3-4 times) the USB connection is opened during the rooting process of Matt's. I will probably use the utilities you recommended in the future and trash VZW's.

    BIG THANKS to Matt as well!!(hope you like Keystone Lite, it's all I could afford!!)

    Next project? Get FoxKat and MattyP's boot-up ani's runnin'. Seems pretty safe for someone cutting their teeth to the whole root (and rootin' around) process!!

    PS. Went with Bootstrap, figured there gotta be a way to swap it out with Safestrap if I reach the point I wanna cross that bridge.

    JayBogg, this is super! And thank you so much for the confirmation that my instructions were helpful. Sometimes when you know how to do something, trying to explain it doesn't come out so clear so it is good to know that it worked!

    I am with you where I might want to change from bootstrap to safestrap eventually...maybe when there are a few more roms to try out. I am almost certain that you can switch to safestrap after having bootstrap although the process is a bit different than as easy as it was to initially root. I believe FoxKat is the one that can help us with that.

    I agree, I think FoxKat, Sydman and Matty have a secret claibration they are not sharing. They would never admit it though, lol!

    Figured out why: When your writing "Rooting for Dummies", ya gotta remember we're dummies!! Pressed the "protect root" button" below the last box, and the 5th check mark magically appeared!! Hooda thunkit?

    Jaybogg, I bet I missed that part too when I did it. You would have thought though, that if I missed that part I would have remembered to put it in there. So now you are going to have to help me out. Where exactly does that step fall. Should I put it right after "open Voodoo Root Keeper?" I will edit the instructions to include that.

    And you aren't dummies!

    Last bulleted step in post #89: Reads: On your phone, open Voodoo Root Keeper. Check to make sure you are rooted (if all the boxes are checked in Voodoo Root Keeper you are officially rooted).

    Suggested: On your phone, open Voodoo Root Keeper. Check to make sure you are rooted. First 4 boxes are checked. Press "Protect Root" Button. If all the boxes are checked, you are officially rooted.
