    Glad to have you here. Rooting is optional, don't feel like you absolutely need to do it. We have a lot of members happy running stock.

    If you do decide to root please make sure you visit the hacking section and read the stickies in there so you can understand what exactly you are doing.

    And if you do get stuck we have plenty of people around to help. Let us know if you need anything. :)

    Read post 13 of the first link in my signature, and welcome to the forums too, btw.

    The link in the post above is also the 3rd link in my signature and will help if you have any issues installing SPRecovery with RSDLite.

    The important thing is to read through, know what the steps are and what they each do. When/if things go wrong, many here will lend a hand.

    Basically: get rsd lite, install sprecovery, make a backup, flash a rom. enjoy.
