    Chrome2Phone stopped working and on their webiste it says that I probably flashed ROM A over ROM B without completely wiping, which is true. Now I'm going to reflash so that I can start absolutely brand new. Do I just do a factory wipe/reset, wipe cache, and then wipe dalvik-cache, then flash the ROM i want to use?

    Yes u need to wipe all that. Always before flashing any ROM you need to wipe everything unless is a patch or update of ur current ROM.

    Also, wipe cache and dalvik cache before flashing kernels.

    Yes, wipe means erase. Neither wiping nor rooting will affect any data stored on your SD card. It applies only to data stored on the phone's internal memory.

    I have never heard of anyone damaging their phone because of rooting,now if you don't read every single step and follow the guides to the T,you might get stuck somewhere but at this point everything is reversible and one way or the other you will root with success.

    Good luck!

    Hold shift and right click on the tools folder in SDK. Then select open command prompt window. This will point CMD to the correct location.

    Do you have .NET Framework installed?

    Follow the steps in the tutorial. I rooted using the first method so I did have to place the file on my SD card. I believe the new method uses ADB to do the same thing but when it comes to rooting it's better to be on the safe side.

    .NET framework will allow you to open the command window from the tools directory. The PC36IMG file needs to be place on the root of your sd card in order for bootloader to find it. What root method are you using so I can take a look?
