Default [How To] Incredible root guides/threads (updated 3/26/2012)

I will be posting "How to" guides on rooting topics in this sticky. If you would like your thread added, please PM me. I am doing this so that it is easier to have all the guides in one spot, and also because I cannot do 6-10 different stickies, as that'd make things very messy and confused newer users more than help. This should give a fairly comprehensive idea of what to do going forward and how to do it, for people that are just starting with root
