    Try this ... a little lengthy but IMO that's all the better! Not a big fan of the one-touch "wonders" ... you need an understanding of what is is you're doing. This was if you encounter issues after you root, you're better equipped to deal with it.

    Good luck and my advice is read and research as much as you can until you feel comfortable with what you're reading. And of course ask questions! This forum is filled with great people willing to help.

    I'm going to second what they said and then offer the first link in my signature to try to point you somewhat in the right direction.

    Oh, and to give you the cookies you've earned by coming to the Dark Side. :D
