    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.

    Guys I made mistake on the creating a nandroid backup videos. Please make sure you UNZIP the tools folder after clicking on "Get the tools" and extract the folder to the root of the SD card. So sorry I left out this crucial step...

    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!

    Sticky this on the sholesmod section, so that those installing the app can still know what going on especially newbies.

    2 questions: 1) Does he use the SholesMod to root it? and 2) Is it going to be the same process for when 2.1 comes out?

    vtothez, I have been linking this on a bunch of thread. This along with rootyourdroid needs to be stickied on every sholesmod thread and thread having to do with root.
