    Im not 1 that had a huge interest in rooting my phone. BUT after finding out that HTC released a over clock kernel I want that really bad... I know nothing about hacking or rooting plus I use a MAC so a lot of software is for windows. I need like a step by step rooting for dummies. A lot of online instructions are not in full detail and its like a foreign language lol .. someone please help so I can have a cool phone like yours...

    Dude, just look in the TB hacks forum, there is a HUGE thread about rooting the TB and it has a step by step that is quite easy. Windows only though.

    No problem. I also suggest this guide for learning ADB. It's a great learning tool and you will catch on fast. The guide focuses on the Windows version but the basics are the same for mac OS X with just a couple differences you will see in the rooting guide.

    there's a lot of kernels being talked about right now, but you need to be rooted to use any of them. Be careful though, as there are a couple kernels that are ROM specific and won't work on everything. I also completely agree to read and study the ADB shell link, once you get ADB down, you can do just about anything and can fix all your mistakes quickly
