I am new to forums and new to droid and rooting. I would love to root for wifi tether, bloat ware, and freedom over system but have Many questions. First looking through forums are hard cause maybe forums in my opinion have bits and pieces of answers and do not have all the information I would like before going through with rooting. If I messed up finding the correct or all in one forum let me know and give the link please. First what's the best way to root. I seen many different methods. Second If I root but did not put custom rom,kernel, etc. on there and verizon has another update and I take it and lose root is that bad and can I get it back if wanted? Third what is all I need from a to z to stop verizon updates on my phone and to continue running custom roms. For example I need to root, do custom recovery program(recommend a progrom) then need to just use that for custom rom and other things are optional. Fourth how to get droid x back to stock in case I need warranty things done. fifth anything that I may need, want, or will use to get this done. Like programs, cables. I basically just want a know it all with all answers needs for someone off the street to have a successful rooting experience. Recommend ROMS please. Thanks for your time reading my topic. EDIT: i have everything figured out now. If anyone needs help let me know.
