    Hello
    For a while now I have been wanting to root my beloved Droid, but I have some preliminary questions that I would like answered. I have read the "how-to" guides and watched the videos, so I have done my research (I just want peace of mind) Relating rooting to surgery, I would like to know the risks involved:

    1. If I use the video tutorial that was posted on the Droid blog (can't remember the name) can I install Bugless Beast and/or Smoked Glass?
    2. If I can, how would I go around doing it?
    3. Does Smoked Glass come in any other colors besides blue?
    4. If so, how can I change it?
    5. How would I "unroot" in case anything should arise and I have to take it back to Verizon.

    I believe that is it.

    I haven't see the video, but I will answer the questions I can...

    1. Once rooted, you can install any ROM you want.
    2. Pick the ROM you want, and follow that developers instructions for applying. Some are different from others.
    3. You can apply about any theme you want on top of SG.
    4. MetaMorph will apply the theme that the other developers have worked so hard to modiy and port for us. Make sure you send a donation to the guy whose theme you use.
    5. Flash your phone with the stock SBF file. It goes back to like the day you bought it.
