    Do your sprecovery nandroid backup. Use Astro to backup your apps to your sdcard. Follow the Smoked Glass install instructions. You will be asked if you want to wipe data and cache. Your option here. If you don't wipe and it works fine you are good to go. If the phone acts funky then do a restore, install SG again and take the option to wipe data and cache.

    I'd do the wipe. You're going from one rom version to another.

    It takes a couple minutes to get your phone signed up again. 5-15 minutes more to reinstall apps from the card and get your icons where you want them again.

    You did a backup right? Just reboot while holding X, and do a simple nandroid restore to restore your last backup or do an advanced one to pick the one you want. No wipe needed.

    Hey Christim! Ok so I am officially rooted, backuped and running the leaked ROM from pete before he officially released it.
    I really want to understand this SetCPU better and how I can use it for my advantage. If I wanted to make the best performance what would I do?
    It's just weird.

    And I want to have Pete's official release ROM now instead of this leaked one. Will that make it easier at all to upgrade or anything? If or if not, I just don't understand how to change the ROMs now @.@
    I was reading through Pete's thread but it didn't help my knowledge..

    Thanks!

    Wow I can't Beleive it!

    I have actually rooted my phone!!!
    I tried to do it with my desktop computer but it kept saying failed. I tried my laptop and succeeded.

    Now I have issues.
    I keep getting FC every 10 minutes or so and the Sync indicator won't go away.

    I thought it was something I downloaded after I had to reactivate my phone and start all over.

    My reason for Rooting was to get a WiFi tether for my itouch. Other than that, I don't know how to use the rooted phone or for what.

    SoIneed help to fix the FC and Sync with Google problem

    Put custom ROMs on your phone, if you're just rooted why not make your phone very awesome like?
    Sure wifi tether is just an app in the market, but making your phone a lot faster and better can help make your monthly phone bill more worth it :)

    And just maybe getting a ROM will help to rid your problem, I think it would.

    SOUNDS PERFECT!!! I love to tweek out all my gadgets. My hubby hates using my stuff cause it's so tweeked, but I think it's all COOL!

    Since I am so new and all this is confusing of what programs, what files do what and how to get them on there, I'd love for a couple simple step by step things privately.
