    [EASY][GUIDE] The SuperUser's Guide to Everything Root (New Jelly Bean Guide)

    [​IMG]

    If you are brand new to rooting and flashing custom ROMs this is for you. The
    SuperUser's Guide offers very detailed and simple instructions to all things root. Hopefully the SuperUser's Guide
    can help you avoid a few of the pit falls of customizing, and will save you a few headaches. The SuperUser's Guide
    objectives are to be detailed, practice good habits, and to teach along the way.


    The Android forums are extremely important to the SuperUser's Guide. It's these communities that make Android
    great, and it is not the guides intention to detract from them in any way. We STRONGLY encourage all users to
    participate in the forums. If you need any support or would like to comment on the guide please do so in the forums


    Disclaimer:
    The SuperUser's Guide, dakota0206, or anyone operating on the SuperUser's Guide's
    behalf is not responsible for any damage to your phone.
    While we believe and know these instructions to be easy to
    follow and as fool-proof as possible, nothing can be guaranteed. You follow the
    SuperUser's Guide at your own risk.



    Please do not re-post any of the SuperUser's Guide material to any other site without
    permission! There are hundreds of hours put into making this guide, and even more hours by the developers that make
    any of this possible. The SuperUser's Guide has received permission from the developers to post the material found here.

    I discovered that some of the command lines in the mac instructions were off. I went through and updated the command lines. Everything should work smoothly now. I will add the backup instructions for Mac tonight!

    The redesign is almost complete.


    There have been some delays due to my computer. It's a Dell M90 that it finally starting to give out. The fans have died and it over heats easily. It has been a good machine. It started with XP and has run vista, 7, and now Windows 8 beta. I don't have the cash to replace it right away, but I am working on it.


    I plan on releasing several more guides is the next few weeks as well. Unfortunetely due to my computer I am not able to get as much done as quickly as I would like. As always if there is something you would like to see ASAP please let me know! :)
