With all the new android users I am seeing lots of newbies jumping the gun on rooting their devices. Geez it took me 3 months of reading before I got the nerve up. I am see razeRS, rezounds and Gnex topics left and right were the user had not made a nandroid of the stock OS and now are in panic mode.

Even the simple task of freezing bloat or changing your boot animation could fubar your device.
