    Need help rooting and unlocking bootloader

    So I've been doing some research on unlocking and rooting my new Rezound. Everything I've found seems to be slightly different from the last page. I had my D1 rooted and all the goodness on it, but things seem to be much more complicated on the newer phones so I just am looking for some help before I go ahead.

    Can anyone help me with this or provide me a detailed step by step that they used? I have a windows vista computer if that helps.

    I unlock the bootloader first, correct? One site said I need to make a backup before unlocking the bootloader, but I don't know how to create a backup without root.

    I really just want to make sure I do this right, as I don't feel like messing it up, lol.

    Any help is greatly appreciated!!!!!!!
    Rockin Rezound!!!

    It sounds a lot worse than it actually is though. The biggest part is probably going to be the unlocking of the hboot. Just use the tool, and follow the instructions it gives you. When you cut and paste your token, make sure to cut the spaces out of it.

    When I start the process on htcdev.com, will it walk me through it or do I need to know how to do it before hand?

    Unfortunately there is no one click option for this. You need to do the work yourself and to help out as much as possible, I've attached the only 4 files you need to unlock. From here, take your time, ask questions(please post any output you have questions about), and enjoy.
