I'll start by saying the only reason (at the moment cause this may change after I learn what else I can do) I want to root my phone is for better battery life. I tried unsuccessfully to root it and am positive I will be able to do it with help from this forum. I've read some things about kernels and ROMs and it isn't making much sense to me. I want to start off by just having the phone rooted then eventually learn what these things are and hopefully increase my battery life. So in a nutshell I'm asking if someone can direct me to the BEST guide for someone without much knowledge to get started and root my phone. And also how I should go about increasing the battery life after I root it. Many thanks in advance.
