    I came from a rooted Droid one, so I'm familiar with ROM's and root etc. But for bionic, do you need to come from a certain version to root? I'm on stock .886. And I was checking the how to root thread, and the only driver was a 64 bit. So is this just for 64 bits? Sorry if these questions are dumb. I just don't want to mess up my phone.

    Yep. I used those steps and worked fine for me. I'm sitting pat waiting on the official OTA and then will apply Shift3r ROM once the RADIO and KERNEL are updated "officially". ;)
