    Honestly,

    I did it and it was very easy. The steps are outlined perfectly and very fool proof. If you do have issues there is of course a link to IRC.

    I don't play with linux much anymore and most of what I know doesn't help. Just being vaguely familiar with adb (see the wiki and read over the steps) is all you really need if you ask me. Of course its your 175-749 so do as you like but its nothing to fear as long as you don't rush. Even just hanging out in chat this early in the game you'll learn a lot about what goes into this process. You might even find yourself able to help someone else out.

    Just finished the rooting process and also got this rom installed. Used the newest vs. of Clockwork to install the rom then ran the kernal update in adb. Everything seems to be working great and i didnt lose root during the update either.

    What do you need to do to install this ROM? Previously I just flashed it through Recovery> do you also need to install a Kernel for this one?

    The kernel is not set up to flash through recovery and you have to use fastboot in adb to do it.

    It's pretty easy and worked great.

    I am interested in flashing this rom. The last step says to:
    "Re-use psneuter to reset permissions on su. chmod 4755 /system/xbin/su."

    To fix SU prblms. Would that be just typing in chmod 4755 /system/xbin/su eithier in adb or a terminal?

    i think you would have to start the chmod with adb

    so

    adb chmod 4755 /system/xbin/su

    but you should only have to do this if your su is broke when you install the new rom

    I do not know why but my battery life has improved significantly after installing this rom. Must be bloatware causing the drain i guess. Thanks for the improvement.
