    For now due to there being several guides mucking up the sticky area, its being featured WITHIN apparently two larger guides now
    which is fine, im not looking to be famous, just wanting to help =]

    Nice work, NGD1. :) Just a few quick helpful hints:

    1. At the beginning of the guide, installing the latest drivers should probably be first, since the computer will refuse to recognize the phone without the proper drivers (or at least I've found that to be the case on Windows XP computers).

    2. At the end of the guide where you mention un-root, you say to follow steps 16-19, but 16 is the last step :p

    3. I know others have asked Bloodawn (CTMod's creator) if they could mirror his ROM or link to it, and he has asked that they link to the thread instead, because he keeps track of the number of times it's downloaded.

    4. Spelling, grammar, blah blah blah.... :D :p Just a personal pet-peeve of mine, not really an important point.

    But again, good job :)

    if you look in the Rooting and Recovery Section The Drivers is the 2nd / 1st actual step.

    16 / 19 has been corrected to 12-16

    all the rom links Are linked to the threads, the only direct downloads are in the tool section (not roms)

    thank you =]

    I havent tried this yet but wanted to say thanks for the info and tons of help. There are a few links you have posted that goe's to minus, they arent available anymore like: tu.root.zip and rom for boost. Are those important or can I do without? I will post on my experience after trying this for the first time ever. I want to get into the tech criteria, I'm planning to get into a school for pc programing and down the road app developer. So I have to say all of you guys inspire me to do so with such knowledge and determination is put in to create such apps!
