    Rooting 101

    I am looking to root the phone. Are there basic things I need to know? I see a lot of threads but seem advanced. I assume I should install a backup app just in case. How do I know which apps I can't touch?

    Any links on this people can recoomend as well?

    You have a better chance at getting correct information over here then in the Droid General Forum which primarily consists of original Droid discussions. Hopefully we will have a hacking section set up soon.

    Check out z4root. You should be able to download the apk from xda, seeing as I don't think it's on the market anymore. That will root your phone for you.

    As far as backing up, once you're rooted download and backup with titanium backup. Once you do that I would recommend going through and uninstalling some of the blur bloatware that's pre-installed on the device.

    Someone sent me this youtube video on rooting. I guess then I would have to figure out what apps I can or should remove and what settings to change

    If you want i'll make a list of what I uninstalled with titanium, so you have an idea of what works. I have z4root on my phone so would be able to get it to you as well
