I have done A LOT of reading on these and other forums about rooting and I am not going to lie there is so much that it can get intimidating. I have never owned an android phone but my girlfriend has a Droid 1 that I mess around with so I have a decent amount of familiarity with the OS. I guess my questions are as follows: 1. Is the guide stickied at the top of this page the best possible Rooting guide for an X? 2. How hard is it, REALLY, to brick your phone (I mean really brick it) if you follow the directions. 3. Is it possible to just "Wade in" to the root waters? adding a little at a time? 3a. What are the OMFG must have this things to be able to do a good amount of "messing around" with root? Launcherpro and Titanium backup? 4. Should I wait until 2.2? I am going on 2 weeks waiting for this phone, so I just don't want to end up with a paperweight over the weekend. Thanks in advance to anyone who adds anything to this thread.
