    Just rooted

    I'm delurking to post success my results of my successful rooting. A few things for other fellow noobs.

    1. Watch a YouTube video before you root. It made the process much less stressful.
    2. You lose most of your settings on your phone but surprisingly not your wifi settings. Follow the manual method by jcase.
    3. Rooting is free but you'll probably want to spend 4 bucks on root explorer after you are rooted.
    4. I rooted for the wifi hotspot. Barnacle seems slow. Find wifi tether on code.google.com and download the 2.0.7 version. I'm getting about 3 Mbps on it vs 50 kbs on barnacle.
    5. I was on the July update MR2.5 but haven't had problems on the MR1.

    Thanks to all who posted before me and gave me the incentive to root.

    I don't see root explorer as a neccesity and its not worth $4 there are equivalent file managers that can keep up with it. And rooting is so easy these days. I saw a kid with who rooted his phone and barely knew what to do with it lol

    I'm not talking about him I'm just saying that it has gotten to be so simple now with the advances in development to root. But more power to him its a big leap to do it!

    I think his post was helpful. Root Explorer is a good app; I use it all the time.

    You don't have to shut down someone who is trying to be helpful. Oh mighty tech guru

    What I'm trying to say is that there are other programs that a regular user can use because seeing all the system folders can be overwhelming to a new user. And a more simple approach is just a file manager if you want to select a file to use. I just say that so that before someone buys it they know there is another simpler app. Again I'm not trying to diminish him it is a good post I just wanted to throw it out there.
