    Hello, everyone!

    I know there are several threads on these topics already, but being redundantly helpful, I took the time to create a single guide with all the above information in one place. I mean, why not? :D

    The guide covers:

    • Root via unrEVOked3
    • Titanium Backup
    • Wireless Tether
    • AdFree
    • nandroid
    • boot animations
    • removing unwanted apps
    • custom ROMs and kernels
    • Completing restores from Titanium and nandroid backups
    • Returning your phone to stock

    The UPDATED Complete Guide: Root & Everything Else (2.2 after the Nov OTA)

    I hope you find this guides easy to use and helpful!

    -Jonathan

    This thread is sticky material IMO.

    We have enough stickies in this forum as is, so I can't really do anything ATM (Big guys upstairs don't like having too many stickies in one forum). And since those guys beat him to the punch, I'll give them their shine for now. If anyone feels like this is a drastically better guide than the two already stickied, PM me and we will discuss it. I will look further into it if you feel strongly about it.

    Edit: However, you guys are free to bump this thread to keep it near the top.

    I've added ROM and kernel instructions to the guide.

    Is there anything else people would like to see included?

    Bump for all the newly rooted folks that keep asking about it. ;)

    Recent changes make the root portion unnecessary but many have asked about other portions of this tut already.

    Does anyone know if unrEVOked3 includes the apps Wireless Tether and Superuser Permission?

    You are awesome for putting this together! Thank you.
    A section on how to restore things from backups would be a nice addition :D

    You people are SO DEMANDING!

    And by "you people" I mean people that are awesome. Because only awesome people come here.

    You're still demanding though.
