    I would root with this: R3L3As3Droot And 43V3R Root For The Bionic V2 - RootzWiki

    And if it doesn't put Bionic Bootstrap on for you, download it from the Market. Open the app and hit the top button to install Clockwork Mod Recovery. Then download and install Rom Manager. Open it and at the very top it will tell if you successfully installed CWR. If the versions of CWR isn't 5.0.2.5, use Rom Manager to install the latest. Boot into CWR and scroll down to Backup/Restore and select it with the power button. The next screen will have backup and restore and advanced restore as options. Select Backup (again with the power button) and let the phone backup. When it finishes use the back button and go back to the first CWR screen and select Reboot System. Now, using Root Explorer navigate to the sdcard-ext/clockwork/backup/ and rename the newly created backup to something like 11-3-2011-VirginRooted.

    You are now ready to decide on what you want to do. You can use Titanium Backup to freeze bloat (there are many threads about what's safe to freeze - Bionic APK list - RootzWiki ). You can look at all the roms that's available - DroidTh3ory's, Liberty, and there's a few others that I can't recall at the moment. All of them seem good and just follow the installation instructions to a "Tee" and you should have no problems.

    If you do have problems, you can get every thing back with the same program you began with: R3L3As3Droot And 43V3R Root For The Bionic V2.1 - RootzWiki as it will recovery a soft bricked phone.

    Good luck and enjoy.

    Oh and be sure to read every thread you can find about all this to assure that you understand each step.

    Thank you for the information, I am looking forward to flashing it this weekend when i have some more free time. I will give you a update after its been completed. As i will probably try a few roms to what one i like best. Btw i am already rooted because i needed to turn on my mobile hotspot. :)
