    I rooted using SBF and i had no issues at all but i have to say that if you are new and don't want to go through sbf (no choice before) then use "easy root" from the market. SBF is old school. YES, i agree you should know how to use SBF to root and also to unroot but the fact remains that "easy root" does the exact same thing as SBF.

    Hey Husker! First, glad Nebraska joined the Big Ten. Just don't beat up on PSU too bad :)

    I suggested SBF over tools like Easy Root and the new release of DroidMod because my feeling is that if one is going to change (root) their phone then they need to understand the process and not rely on some tool that changes their phone. I like to know what is or is not going on my phone so that if problems arise I am able to resolve. I'm very apprehensive of using a tool that I have no idea of what exactly is being modified on my phone.

    When I rooted, the Droidmod had a tool but I chose the hands on approach and used a tutorial developed by Matth3W. It was a very detailed tutorial with close to 60 steps. I learned quite a bit from that tutorial and still use portions of it today.

    I realize that many members do no want to take the time to educate themselves and, therefore, use the tools. Nothing wrong with that approach.

    Mike

    I'lll just tell myself that this was a joke. The Huskers don't have anything on us. :biggrin:



    Can you imagine what the forums would look like if they did take the time to educate themselves, even if it were for a few minutes? It's got to be difficult having to answer the same questions over and over again. Oh well, I did Matth3w's guide as well back in January and can recall how many times I read over EVERY step just to confirm I was doing it right. lol

    Never fear, there is always a solution. Need a little more info. Explain in detail the steps you have taken up until this point. Which guide did you follow? Have you tried holding x and the power button to boot into recovery?

    Hey there TaliWacker I'm glad to see that you are going to get into this custom ROM scene. One word of advice I have for you is that you should head over to Droid Life, there you will find a lot of videos (which for me really REALLY helped when getting into this in the very beginning which was a very long time ago now) showing you how to do all these things, what to look for, and all that. Also because this has been going on for a long time there is already a ton of help out there. On Droid Life its really simple so that any newcomer like yourself can just jump right in and do it because there are step by step instructions on how to do anything, there wont be a time where it will just say to do something without you knowing what that thing is. And when you have any problems or questions, this is definitely the place to come for help. These forums here are pretty much the most active and helpful that I have seen yet, really great stuff here.

    Welcome to the "Rooted Community"! dancedroid

    Actually, I'm an optimist and would bet that for ever new thread and post of a question a dozen or more are using the same thread for help without even registering or posing a question. So, it may make clutter here or in Google, but eventually drives up the variations for people to search and educate themselves ;)
