    I suggest that you go install Liberty on there. And I would probably start with SBFing it just in case something nasty had been on there before putting Liberty on there.

    When you reboot, you're going into the bootstrap recovery. Go ahead and "wipe data/factory reset" then boot up and put in your gmail info, see how it works out. If you would like a completely stock phone, let me know and I'll go ahead and get the SBF instructions for you.

    Op go into settings, privacy, and do a factory reset. Make sure you have a gmail set up before you do, and it is going to ask you to activate it again. Rooting just gives you admin control. Root does not mess your phone up. You do not need to worry about a rom right now just use the device like it is and learn it first.

    Also ignore the clockwork screen. To get out of it use your volume button to scroll and camera to hit reboot. Bootstrap is designed to boot into a custom recovery every other boot up.
