    www.droidmod.org just click the droidmod updaterlink on the page from your phones browser. Just be sure to read up on rooting first. youtube has some great videos on it plus the forum has much much info on it. Just use the search to find it

    DroidMod Updater is probably the easiest way. Do some searches, there are plenty of threads with instructions, and instructional videos. Make sure you understand what's happening, what's going to happen, and be comfortable with it.

    We're here for you.

    The easiest way is stated already by those responding. The best way though...that is up to you. I read a bunch of threads here. I knew of dmupdater but chose the threads in my signature and followed those. If you understand what root will get you and you read the manual methods and they intimidate you, then go the dmupdater root. Even if you read and understand everything you may still want to choose a more automatic route. If you are ok with doing some typing and following some instructions then one of the other routes might be "best" for you.

    dmupdater lets you revert back and so do the manual methods too. Good luck, have fun!

    The backup software is SPRecovery and Nandroid. DMUpdater will do this for you too, but you should still read about how they work.
