    if you search for DroidMod here on forums you will find it can root your phone with no terminal commands. And then you can install UltimateDroid without the use of any terminal commands.

    If you do come across something that needs terminal commands... just follow instructions!

    You can 99.9% of the time fix anything you "break"

    There are a lot of helpful members who have both created guides and offer assistance with rooting and ROMs! Good Luck!

    to flash any rom you need root access and sprerecovery installed. I would link you to the threads but I'm on my Droid as my PC has died.

    I would research root a little here in the forums. Its all very simple once you understand what you're actually doing with rooting and ROMs
