    I have a non-rooted Motorola Droid running 2.2 and I want to root to try out a ROM. I want to make sure I do this right. I don't want to lose any data (pictures, texts, etc) and I don't want to lose any apps. I've read a bunch of threads and it sounds like this is the general order I should proceed in:

    1 - Backup data with MyBackupPro
    2 - Root
    3 - Backup apps with Titanium Backup
    4 - Install ROM

    Is this correct? Am I missing anything? Will the root method or ROM make a difference in terms of the process?

    that is probably sufficient. I add two additional steps for me.

    I use Appbrain, that keeps all of my Apps stored---paid and free--once you sync to it.

    and then at 3.5 "Create nandroid backup using ROM Manager"


    it should be an interesting and fulfilling experience for you

    Cheers.

    Sounds good. I personally use something like Astro to back up all my apps to SD, save all pics there if they're not already, and then copy my SD card to my PC. Perhaps a little redundant, but well worth it the first time you lose something.
