    YES YOU ARE!! AND it is VERY much appreciated that this site is "realistic" about having fun with our phones!

    One of the other "unnamed" sites seems to be run by "Unrealistc RUDE Purtians" and I no longer waste my time there. In over 12 years of being a member of many Forums (and Sponsor of some) I have never been treated so rudely as I have "there".

    This is why I consider DroidForums.net MY Home for all things Droid AND a place to met some nice fun-lovin COOL people!!

    THANK YOU DROIDFORUMS.NET, you're the BEST!!

    Apologies for the hijack and rant, back on topic:

    I too saw the new "Root'r app for dummies" and I think it is fantastic!! What a great(and smart) bunch of people we have in the Android world!

    Pretty soon they will have an app for the unexperianced where they can safely tap a button and it roots the phone, adds all the cool stuff, backups everything for you and even has a button to restore to "unrooted" status for warranty visits etc..ALL without having to know anything about command lines etc .

    I just installed it and its running great. I had to switch to default home theme then install the skull theme, after that I was able to switch back to using Home++. I dont think that the bootanimation is running correctly due to png files not having the right naming scheme. I think it runs 1, 10, 11, 12, so on and so on, but I will look at that later tonite when I get home.

    i tried this app and all seems to be well but i cant get the reboot into recovery to show the nandroid backup option which i think is the most important. does anyone know idf this was included or did i need to install nandroid from another source before to get this to work? i am a total noob so please help.

    if you read the post busybox and flash_image needs to be installed first here ya go
    download flash_image from here http://cyanogen-files.carneeki.net/flash_image.zip and unzip and place on sdcard
    install busybox first
    download busybox binary to your adb tools directory
    http://www.alldroid.org/download/file.php?id=709
    cd to your adb tools directory
    adb push busybox /data/local/busybox
    adb shell
    su
    cd /data/local
    chmod 755 busybox
    ./busybox
    mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
    mkdir /system/xbin
    /data/local/busybox cp /data/local/busybox /system/xbin
    /data/local/busybox cp /data/local/busybox /system/bin
    cd /system/xbin
    busybox --install .
    mount -o ro,remount -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
    sync
    reboot

    Then to install flash_image:
    su
    mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
    cat /sdcard/flash_image > /system/bin/flash_image
    chmod 755 /system/bin/flash_image
    sync
    mount -o remount,r -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system

    also after all the above, I have to click Mount System read/write then scroll down and click Reboot Recovery to actually get the nandroid to show in the recovery options after the reboot.

    if you notice the bootanimation with this package being "jerky" unzip the bootanimation on your computer, add another 0 in the filenames of the .pngs 001 through 009 in each folder so they show as 0001 through 0009, 0010, 0011 etc. , that will put them back in the right order.

    theres a option to rename old recovery so you dont lose custom recovery at reboot.
