    I saw this on Twitter. I might only try it to make nandroids so that I can theme. If that's what this does. I'm waiting for more information on it.

    I just installed it and did a nandroid backup for my extreme orange theme and it worked like a gem. Just like we had on the droid1. Thank God for Koush. dancedroid:icon_ banana::):)

    Yep. I just made a backup myself, and it worked. This is awesome!

    Verizon, you've been beat by Koush!

    As far as I can tell, this thing is now fully rooted, and we can boot into custom ROM's.

    Guys don't forget Birdman's hard work, he's the one that got it all started.

    I can't get the app to do anything. Select bootstrap, get success then it won't do anything. What step am I leaving out

    once it says success hit the other button and it automatically reboots into recovery but you have to be rooted and have certain things im not sure of which things but it worked perfect for me... anyway I hope birdman has that froyo rom hooked up and posts it shortly now because I know hes been workin on it.

    To be completely honest. I just installed that Revolution theme. This phone is so snappy the way it is, and the way it looks is perfect, I honestly do not think I will be even touching custom ROM's.

    I'm really not sure what's going on. You are rooted right?

    Because Koushs' app seems pretty self explanatory.

    That's very strange. I don't know what to tell you man. All I did was click the Bootstrap button, and then rebooted to recovery. I imagine you did the same thing.
