I recently upgraded from my Bionic to a Droid Razr. I finally decided that I wanted to try to root the device and install a custom ROM. After reading through an endless stream of forum posts, I realize that not only do I have no bloody clue what I should be doing, I am afraid that even attempting such an endeavor will cause my phone to explode and a Tsunami to occur somewhere in the South Atlantic. I know to use the Droid Root tool v1.8, but something about freezing apps, something Titanium Backup, what is safe-something...augh! Is there a step by step instruction somewhere the will tell me how to do this and what I need to accomplish it?
Also should I root my phone before setting up the service, installing, accounts, etc. or should I do it after?
What does "root"ing actually do to the phone?
Can anyone recommend a stable/cool ROM to install?
I am WAY new to this and are approaching this project with some trepidation.
Thanks for your advice time on this, everyone.
God, i hope I posted this in the right forum!
