A popular misconception is that rooting your phone is a long and extremely complicated process. It isn't. It is just flashing a rooted kernel.
True story. There is a rather attractive divorcee who lives locally. I visited her and her 13 year old son. He wanted to root his phone to get the ROM I was using. Thinking that this was a good way to get my feet under the table and look good in his eyes, I brought up that rooting guide for him and told him to read it thoroughly and carefully, thinking that he would call on me to help him.
One bottle of wine and 90 minutes later he proudly produced his phone that he had rooted from scratch, including downloading and installing Odin and the rooting kernel!
