    Is THIS thread still helpful to install a ROM?
    It's from beginning of february so is there a more up to date one?
    And anyone else use Droid root Helper? It looks kind of weird to me lol

    I am rooted and have a ROM and stuff, but it was thanks to another user on these forums that helped by IMing me, so I know stuff but want to be completely sure so I can help other people root and instal ROMs :)

    Oh, and THIS thread too.

    the installation process on this one seems more complicated than I remember doing..

    YouTube - DroidReview's Channel
    The "DroidReview" has like 10 or so videos on helpful stuff on the Droid, ranging from rooting to how to use Rom Manager.
    The vids are very detailed and current. (Meaning they were made less than a month ago).
    I would recommend these.

    Would this still work? Please tell me:






    That compared to THIS POST.

    Second one seems more complicated, but he doesn't give a way to do it without paying for titanium backup. Alternate please.

    Depends, are you rooting 2.1, or 2.0.1?

    Yeah I know about the renaming and everything, just the guide for 2.01 looks less of a pain that 2.1, and free, and you say it still works? Just put the update.zip to the root and wipe ect the basic stuff?

    Just as long as you have access to SBRecovery, I believe it should work. I can't speak from experience (I use Rom Manager), but I don't know why it wouldn't. Go ahead and try. The worst that will happen if it doens't work is it will say that it failed. In which case, just reboot.Have you flashed either SB or Clockwork Recovery?

    Well of course by my sig, I'm fine with everything, but yeah the guy I'm trying to help needs it. Plus I want to know for future ROMs and stuff anyways haha
    But yes he does have SPRecovery lol

    But ok I'll give that way a shot, I think it should work too. It's pretty dang easy if you ask me, all these people scared to root and put on these ROMs and stuff lol

    If you are using SPrecovery the way you mentioned: rename to update.zip, put on root of sd card, reboot recovery, install, allow install (depreciated), install will work.

    I've never used Rom Manager. Only SPrecovery

    BTW, don't forget to wipe data and cashe in SPR

    No offense man, but from the sounds of it you're in no place to be helping others root. What you're asking is extremely trivial stuff.
    Most of your threads are HELP threads with exclamation points. You should try to learn on your own a little bit more.
    What if you end up bricking this guys phone?

    Not really. I didn't brick his phone thank you and he is running bugless beast with a kernel and theme and scripts and everything perfectly thanks to me, but um, thanks for the compliment....

    I knew there was really no nice way of saying that. And I figured you'd get bent out of shape.
    All I'm saying is when I was helping you root your phone you can bet your ass I wasn't on here posting help threads mid-way through your install. I helped you because I knew what I was doing and I was confident.
    You got the guy started, then came back on here with asinine questions that are answered in nearly every other help thread on this forum.
    I'm just saying maybe you should spend a little more time learning about this process and less time posting threads expecting people to help you with every little problem you run into.
