Rooting Guides Aint Clear Or Is It Me ???
To my mind the rooting guides are not the clearest in here or anywhere else, now please do not let anyone take offence to this, I more than appreciate the work everyone does & I really dont mean this as having a go at anyone, but to a noob or even a non-noob, I think they are very confusing.
I rooted my previous phone (HTC desire) and I loved it, I have since rooted my razr but thats as far as it goes for the moment, because the guides appear to expect that a lot of people have knowledge of not just rooting but also of Motorola phones.
In the UK, motorola died on its backside so no-one here had one of these brands of phones and I think a lot of guides seem to be written for people that are used to them and they way these specific phones work. For instance I know how to do a soft reset, but how do you boot into recovery menu/flash rom menu etc ? Do you install bootstrap file ? Does that give you clockwork mod or is that another file ?
What doesnt help me as well is a lot of guides appear to be written by people where English isn't their first language and as I am in the UK, I dont speak another language as the education system is geared that everyone else in the world must speak English (to my embarrassment)
I cant find a one step resource that says you do things in this order, then in that, then in that etc etc and the guide on this forum is the same.
Is there anyone that can help me with this ?
Can our forum guides be tidied & added to so this makes it easier for all ?
I love this forum, on it a few times a day and just want to help suggest ways to make it even better for those already here and make it THE 1st place anyone would look for the ultimate guide on how to root this phone and hopefully grow the membership.
Again please dont take this as a slight on anyone, it is not intended in this way and problem only shows me up as a complete nooby douche !!! lol
