    it went gorgeous. Thank you. Once I Figured out how retarded I was being, It worked. The only problem I'm running into now is that I'm trying to install a Mod, Liquid for example, and It said Finished installing Liquid Gingerbread, Enjoy, i reboot my phone, and all I get is Blue, and red squares that look fancy, and spin and do circles, but it takes forever, and nothing happens?

    Did I put the mod in the right place? All I did was mount it, so I could access files, and dropped it in the first directory.

    Its called a bootloop. Very common after not installing a rom properly. You need to get into recovery (pull battery, put it back, power on while holding down on the volume key) select recovery then do a wipe of data and cache three times. Next select install from SD card and find the rom you downloaded. Make sure it is in the root of the SD card (not in a folder) then install it. Once it's done, reboot into Android and you should be up and running.

    Hey guys, forum noob here, just trying to understand why I must uninstall iTunes, and norton, and sync before doing this. I would really rather not uninstall any of that, is there any way around this? I can do without sync, but other than that, I don't feel like reloading all of my music and videos into iTunes, or trying to find my norton reg keys, seeing as I have no clue at all where they are.

    Kaz, you don't have to uninstall any of that. I didn't and i rooted it just fine. Just make sure itunes and your security program is closed, that's all I did. and it worked just fine.

    best of luck.
