Thumbs up ROOTING For Dummies Guide.....the Gingerbread Edition

EVO 4G - All Things Root Rooting, ROMS, Overclocking, etc.

Internet searching on rooting brought me to this post, introduced me to Phandroid -, xda developers and so much more. This post took me over the edge from wannabe rooted to rooted and beyond. I go back to it from time to time to make sense of something I'm not sure of or what I need to do. It provided the most in-depth detail for a beginner/neophyte rooter/geek like me. It got me to looking as to what "ota" and many other terms that are used in this forum mean. I usually avoid anything titled "Dummies" (hate that series name) and prefer the term the O Reilly book series uses, "the missing manual." There is so much out there about rooting but this was for me, "the missing manual" for beginners and a real introduction to a new Android world. Thanks to ocnbrze for compiling so much information and the many other contributors who have made my venture successful. is a great community!
