    Ya I did it using the same method. Make sure you go over the steps a few times.

    I do not know of any video tutorials but as long as you follow all of the steps closely you will not damage your phone. I was just as worried as you when I first rooted but that was before I understood the basic concept. You're not really doing anything crazy. So what I did was read through the steps very carefully several times. Then I pulled out a notebook and wrote "how to root" at the top of the page.

    Then I wrote all of the steps down. This helped me to further familiarize myself with the steps. Then I compared my notes the the steps in the thread to make sure they were all correct.

    You don't really have to get that crazy about it but if it helps you I would say go for it. And just a tip, when you are entering commands in the terminal emulator, all spaces are important and all letters are case sensitive.
