    Contact the Dev, contact Google. If you never got the download you're entitled to you should get a refund.

    Does any method of rooting have a 100% success rate? I mean for rooting n00bs (like I would be).
    Because I don't trust the stock recovery console (from experience) and would like to be able to do proper backups like nandroid or Titanium--but I would also like to be able to have an idiot-proof way of un-rooting if I have to return or sell the phone.
    I was considering Easy Root, but then I read your post here, and I know you know whereof you speak.

    No. And I can say that with authority because the best method of rooting is still to flash SPRecovery to the phone via RSDLite, and sometimes a flash there won't take the first time, and if you lose power or knock the USB cable out, you're screwed. Too Easy Root (as I call it), is an alright program, but some of the root jobs it does are a bit shoddy. If all you want is to run WiFi tethering or USB tethering that doesn't require massive setup, an extra monthly payment to VZW, or $10-$30 out of pocket plus having to have a program running on whatever computer you're trying to tether, VERY mild overclocking, or some basic rooted apps, it's good. It's when you want to try themes/ROMs/custom kernels that the real issues come into play. As far as I'm concerned, nandroid/clockwork backups alone are worth flashing SPRecovery.

    Now, if you aren't unlucky, Easy Root will allow you to get ROM Manager and from there an alternate recovery image, but there's no guarantee it'll work. It should work, but then again, nobody should smoke. :)

    Don't support code theives, easyroot is a paid stolen app that was pulled from the market by google for being stolen code from the DM team. DMU will be free on its release, and will be bug free too.

    Do you have a link for that? I refuse to support code thieves (one reason Ultimate Droid will never see the light of LEDs on my phone), so if I've been telling people it's okay to use and I read otherwise I'll stop immediately.

    And yes, folks, it's quite possible to steal open source code. You have to credit the source whenever possible.

    I followed the link and figured I'd repost the blog entry link here for easy access: Who turned out the lights? | DroidMod.org
    Not being a rooter (yet) or a coder I don't understand half of it, but I do get the gist. I'm glad I did not purchase Easy Root. Would like to find out more about the s/w the DM guys are talking about.
