    Thank you, I am working on a How to UNROOT video, and another video of what each ROM looks like and the features and differences are. Also working on another tutorial on how to Overclock and what not... Hopefully we can start referring people to these videos instead of posting new threads all the time or having new threads be created on the same topic.

    Thanks again and enjoy. Stay tuned for the updates =)

    One of my friends tried your procedure to do a nandroid backup but he never gets the new recovery mode screens. I didn't follow the instructions here, I got DroidRootPro instead of DroidRootHelper. My options are different and I'm able to boot to recovery mode and perform a nandroid backup. Also, I've already installed 2.0.3 from sholes.info...could either that or DroidRootPro be the key?

    You gotta redo the smoked glass installation since there is a new version ... a step might have changed! haha. :icon_ banana: good work though.

    Where do you find the desktop downloads? In order to root your phone you need a file, where do I get it from?

    The links for the download are in the show notes... They all should work.

    good job :clap:

    Whether you decide to do it yourself or download the sholesmod app I believe everyone that root (unless you already know what you are doing) should check out this tutorial. If this is not already sticky it should be.

    Thanks so much, I really wanted to root to overclock and then install smoked glass but I was very cautious to do so. You made it very easy to follow, can't thank you enough!
