    So I should put the zip file on the root and unzip it there using the file manager?

    don't unzip the rom file, you install the .zip from the clockworkmod recovery with the bootstrapper

    DON'T DOWNLOAD OTA'S IF YOU'RE ROM'D UNLESS YOU WANT A BRICK

    sorry, it's important that you know this.

    unless of course the rom dev supports it which I think <1% do :p

    Stock only. It adjusts the framework which is what rommers/themers change

    So would you recommend I reload my backup that I made prior to loading the Rom and then load up the new version of Dark Slide V4?? Is it worth it?

    that is what I recommend; however, you may be able to install darkslide over your current version of darkslide. I'm not sure, ask the dev. Whether or not it's worth it or not is something you need to decide

    Hello everyone, I'm extremely new to the android phone market, the thunderbolt is my first phone.. I've been lurking on this site for a little while just gaining as much info as I could, but I do have a bit of a noob question.. I was going to root my phone in the near future and I know that making a backup beforehand is a very wise decision.. I have not dl'ed TiBu or any similar app from market yet, but I was wondering how to actually go about making a "nandroid backup".. Did a search and only found posts suggesting users to make a nandroid backup as opposed to how-to make one.. any and all help is greatly appreciated, thank you

    You will not be able to make a nandroid backup or use tibu before you are rooted. Unfortunately rooting involves wiping everything. You will lose all of your apps and app data. When you log in to your Google account once rooted your paid apps (and most of your free ones if you're lucky) will automatically restore but your data will have been wiped (i.e. text message records, bookmarks, angry birds levels, etc.). Once you are rooted you can then install clockwork recovery through Rom Manager and make a nandroid backup of your current setup in case you run into problems as well as backup all of your apps and data with tibu for easy restoration after flashing new roms. Best of luck!! Just do your homework and you'll be golden.
