Okay. Ive been real resilient against rooting. In fact i just recently dl'd launcher pro plus (which i absolutely love). No particular reason aginst rooting other than i have a knack for screwing things up. Comin from an iphone, this is all new to me. Basically I love my setup now with lpp and my custom wallpaper and custom icons. I really really want a black status bar though. whats the easiest way to do that (and eventually other things, but for now just the bar, and a few root apps). I understand the simpleoneclick root process and will be doing that later. then i need to install bootstrap app? then deodex- easiest way is the 928droid black glass from what i understand. and follow the all-in-one guide post and poof im done? questions: will this change all my icons, wallpaper, or affect lpp in any way (if so, how can i fix it back). Is the 928 a rom (and what exactly does that mean)? it changes the sliders and everything? does it automatically include a black status bar (with white text etc...) What do i need to do to get JUST a black status bar. how would i go from the 928 to a different rom? Just had surgery on my knee so im laid up here and reading all about this and its just kind of confusing with there being so much out there. Im much more understandable to visual understanding than written when it comes to stuff likethis, but once i can break it down and understand it i have no problems, so im just looking to understand what these things mean, do, and interact with what i have now. I appreciate the help!
