    Ok kiddies...I finally succeeded! After much heartache and sorrow, flip flopping around as to whether or not root, and general discontent with a stock ICS update(that Woodsy and Rico have heard about to no end....)...I finally decided to root. After lots of trial and error, and lots of help from everyone at www.wcxxperia-nce.com for walking me through the process. The process is mildly complicated, and not exactly beginner level...but having lots of experience flashing rom's on my Inspire I was somewhere in the middle. So far, this ROM is super smooth...it is much faster, and very stable. He is working on a generic ROM that is competely ATT free, and has Wifi Hotspot Tethering unlocked. Can't wait!

    All in all I am super happy with the rom, and now am super comfortable with the process required to set up the phone to flash. I'm getting ready to start compiling comprehensive "Work Instructions" on how to flash it. Anybody interested??

    I'm typing it up in a Word Document that I'll copy and paste when I'm finished. I want to make sure that its right, without having to try and edit in the text box...LOL!

    Its pretty comprehensive, but not difficult...

    Rooting Instructions
    Hasoon2000 created his Vivid All-In-One Kit V1.2 and posted it on XDA. The link to the download is here: http://www.mediafire.com/?bxfd2j5ia6yfxgu Download this kit to handle all your rooting needs. This kit is pretty much fool proof. If you follow the instructions and do the steps in order, you will be fine! USB Debugging must be enabled. From the home screen TAP settings, TAP develop options, TAP USB Debugging
    You should take care when getting the token ID that you only highlight the areas that are clearly marked by HTC

    The previous post only pertains to flashing WCX...not other roms...I have some people working on cleaning up the verbage so as to enhance continuity, but the directions have been briefly looked over by the developer and given the stamp of approval...

    I'm a noob at this, so i'm going to try and explain the best i can. After the phone recognized the new image, i let i update both times, when it trys to reboot it shows the htc logo, vibrates, and goes to a black screen. What should it do. Please help.
