    I'm looking for someone to write and maintain a really easy "how-to" for newbies. There's an All-in-one rooting guide that I sticked in the top post, but it's somewhat out of date with the advent of 2.2.1.

    Here's what I'm looking for:

    1) How can I 1 step root my phone? (give the link for z4root)
    2) How can I unroot 1 step... use the same app.

    3) How can I restore my phone if I brick (link the files to rsdlite and the appropriate sbf for the build) and give directions. I think the directions in the all in one post are pretty good, just the files are out of date because they are for 2.2

    4) What's a rom and how do I update to it? (again..as easy as possible, using rom mgr, let's say, and making sure they have installed droid x bootstrapper.)

    5) What's a theme and how do I install over a rom?

    That would be it. Any takers? Let me know. If there are no takers I can do it myself, but I'd rather spread the wealth. :)

    TIA

    Steven glares at Tom for too long and Tom gets a bit uncomfortable. ;)

    Might I ask why another guide is in the works when RoOoLeR's guide is well written and pretty recent?

    Good question. I want something very very simple using apps that are 1 click and foolproof.

    Makes our job easy.

    You're already halfway there! I say just continue with what you have. :)

    Of course it will have to be updated almost daily thanks to TBH and the different ROMS and how they work with each new update/etc...
