    way to close to the equator for my taste...
    Hey guys, I'm wondering if anyone is interested in giving me a detailed walkthrough of rooting, unrooting, using SBF and/or any other methods/programs I should know how to use. I've been a member of this forum for a while and previously rooted the OG Droid with the help of this forum. I've read over and over again all the step by steps guides and I'm still scared ill brick my shiny new droid x. I'm pretty computer savy, and I don't think it would take me long to catch on to all this but it would be nice to have someone there just in case I messed up. I definitely learn better hands on than reading text off my screen... Anyone interested in making a few extra $$$???

    Okay so maybe that post made it sound like I'm totally lost... I'm not, I know a good bit I'd just like one of you "smart kids" to look over my shoulder while I do this...

    So you have a couple of options. There are easy one-click options, and there are more complicated but still pretty easy options. The advantage of the former being the ease, and the advantage of the latter being the knowledge and understanding of the process (which is invaluable if you plan to do any more customization).

    You dont really need to backup anything to root, since the process is more like installing an app than deleting anything.

    This will link you to the easy way out -- make sure you understand what's happening. Have fun.
