    I finally rooted using the sticky guide on all things root and I just have to say how painless it was. I am so happy/excited to explore all the possibilities of this band new world! So far everything is working flawlessly. Anyone have any good insider tips/warning/anything useful?

    The very first thing you should do without question is a Nand backup using Clockwork Mod.

    I cant believe how much I have used that backup already lol. I did something ****ed up, used the back up and just repeated. Gotta learn somehow.

    Also, is there an easy way to get back an app that you removed (ie cityid) I accidentally removed friendstream and would like it back.

    Download titanium backup.Do a batch backup of all user apps/data.Then after having to do a nandroid backup.Re install titanium and just restore all previous apps.

    You can get it back again with your nand restore assuming you did your nand backup before you 86'd it. :D

    If not, you can probably find the .apk somewhere, you're not the first to ditch it and want it back. Might want to consider moving apps to a disabled folder in the future. Up to you tho, some people like to get rid of them altogether. If you're interested, check out this thread for details:

    Otherwise, check out some of Adrenalyne's Roms. He removes the bloat out of the gate and puts out some quality stuff.
