    Yay ill help! Very simple as long as you follow the correct steps and always make a backup..if you want to save apps and data go and get titanim back up! Lemme know where your at so I can tell you what's next...first...root..just hit the permanent root..then hit yes when superuser ever apears asking permission..reboot first though then hit permanent root...sometimes it won't take the first time...
    I will be here..just let me know when your rooted!:)

    Remember number 1..once I get you to cm7..DO NOT USE BOOTSTRAPPER! ANYMORE WHILE ON CM7 OK?
    You will be able to acces cwm recovery via power button click reboot and the option will be given...nowthen...
    Make sure you backup your apps and all with titanium or backup app..

    Ok...go to bootstrap and hit flash recovery and click ok..
    Then go to rommanager and flash cwm recovery..click on droid 2 or whatever your make is..remember hit ok whenever you see the superuser.

    Now you will need premium so the nightlies will show..download nightly 53 that's what I'm on at the moment..
    Then before you do anything else, let me know where your at..your almost there...

    The only problem I have..is your battery won't last as long...but a fix is being worked on...you may want to try miui afterwords..all else fails and you don't like the awesome speeds and themes on the fly and many settings...just flash back to stock and hit your backup!:) and by the way..you know there is an ota official coming our way soon..they are sending out soaks..but I'm happy with cm7!

    Some known issues before you install:

    Alt-lock doesn't work (but you can press alt twice to get the same result)
    stock live-wallpapers don't work (but market live-wallpapers do)
    you may have to plug-unplug-plug your usb to get it to connect to the computer, or get power (unchecking "USB debugging" seems to fix this)
    voice commands do not work over bluetooth

    These are all very small issues to most people, especially since most of them have a work-around, but you can make that decision yourself.
