    Well after months and months of flirting with wanting to root, reading tons of post about it. I finally did it last night.dancedroid So far so good. I still have a lot to learn. Like where do you download different roms....are they in the marketplace? I am running BB V0.4. Where do I get the smoked glass ect. I look forward to playing around with some different settings and stuff. I just want to thank everyone for all of the great info. This is a great forum.

    roms are in the hacks section of this forum - each dev/dev team has their own section and usually the stickies at the top are their latest work

    Check out the app Rom Manager for on the go flashing (you need the premium for most ROMs though).

    It's highly addictive to be able to instantly keep switching/testing out new ROMs.

    Have fun! :)

    Also, can't stress this enough... make sure you make some BACKUPS using SPRecovery (nandroid backups), or Clockwork Mod Recovery in Rom Manager. The two backups are not compatible with each other, so if you use both, make sure you have current backups in both.
