    RSD is not as hard as it looks. Follow carefully.

    Flashing SBF files isn't too complicated...except perhaps to those who haven't done it a bunch of times. Once you've done it once you gain a good understanding of what is going on. Last time I rooted, just a few weeks ago, I used SuperOneClick. I plugged the phone into the computer, ran the file, and was rooted. What comes next depends on what you want to do. You might need SPRecovery, you might want Clock Work Recovery to flash some roms.

    If none of the above makes sense, go back and read some more or clearly state what your desired end goal is. (I want to do this or install that)

    and welcome to DroidForums!

    You're definitely going to need a charged battery. It would be a bad thing for the battery to go dead while you are installing a rom or using RSD lite. Once its charged, let us know if you want to still want to root your phone.
