I've had my Inspire for just over a week now and have been reading through this forum as well as a few others trying to learn as much as I can about rooting. I'll most likely use the hack kit and I've read and reread the effen manual trying to make sense of it. I think I'm at a point where I just need to do it to fully understand the process. But I'd like to know if there are any points during the rooting process where I need to be particularly careful. Any landmines that I need to watch out for, errors I need to avoid making or risk permanently bricking my phone? I read through the "Inspire 4G, rooting - Front to back" sticky and that makes it sound like it's pretty straightforward. But there are several replies from people that have run into problems and there haven't been any responses offering a solution. I can't afford to buy a new one if it all goes south. Also, in a few threads where people have run into trouble, one suggested course of action is to "RUU it". I'm not exactly sure how that works. Can I use the Gingerbread ROM Update I got off of the HTC site for this purpose? Would I just run it as I would if I were just updating the phone to GB? Would this get the phone back running as it was before starting this process?
