    Hey I just need help in all this stuff, Im pretty good with computers and stuff, but I cant figure this all out. I have read a lot on rooting and custom roms but i cant figure everything out. Im updated to 2.3.340 and I just rooted using the z4 mod, but i dont know what to do from here, could anyone post links or explain how i install a custom rom and which one to suggest Apex, Rubix, Fission, GummyJar, Darkslide, or Ultimate RC2? And also id like to know what all apps or software ill need for everything including sbf and downloading or editin stuff? I know im a noob so sorry, anything would be helpful. Much Appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Fission Rom Manager | Team DeFuse

    Install the rom manager, click list downloads, then click on the non update fission. It will download to sdcard/fission/rom and all other addons will be under sdcard/fission/addons.

    Be definitely sure to backup just in case you don't like it or if something goes wrong. It shouldn't if you just follow the directions.

    Create a nandroid backup before you try any ROMs just in case you don't like them.

    I know nothing about it. I've only tried fission and apex as those are what I hear most about plus when I find something I like, I don't like to venture off :p

    Ive noticed in different instructions that some say to wipe cache then data then mount system and data, and in one it says to wipe cache then data then wipe dalvick cache and battery stats and says nothing about mounting. So what is the correct method to download roms after it boots into recovery? Thanks again.
