    You're rooted

    Pick a Rom
    DL it
    Save it to root of SD card
    Restart phone holding volume down
    Recovery
    Nandroid backup to be safe
    Power to back up a menu
    Install from SD card
    Select zip
    Install.
    Enjoy froyo.

    I'm in jersey (well, will be for the weekend), and could give you a hand if you're serious. Not going to take your money though.

    Where about are you?

    look in the roms section of the forum, there or XDA. I personally reccomend the FrankenROM (Evoport thread).

    Dude, I'm in seaside park. Here now, will be until I fly back to CA tomorrow afternoon. If you for real want a hand getting this stuff down, I don't mind. Just lemme know, I'll PM you my email. Otherwise, reading the stuff already referenced covers everything you need to know, but I get it with being overwhelmed by acronyms and new terms.

    I work @ a bar in Central Jerz. I could root it for you if you want but these guys are right if you follow the step-by-steps online it's really easy.

    I love to help too. . But the truth is you should just keep reading until you can do most of it or you probably don't really even need a rooted phone, most of what you would do with root requires the same knowledge.

    I'm about to be in NJ in like... 3 hours. Gotta get back to MD by tomorrow evening though. Like everyone said, it's really straightforward. Hardest part is biting the bullet and doing it; overcome the fear!

    I must not fear.
    Fear is the mind-killer.
    Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
    I will face my fear.
    I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
    And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
    Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.
    Only I will remain.

    Honestly, if you are not willing to learn how to root yourself, or can't figure it out, I don't recommend that you should have a rooted phone. If you're going to modify the filesystem of your phone, you should have some sort of knowledge of what it does and how to change it yourself.

    But that's just my opinion.

    Ok, one of several things:

    1) your download of the Frankenrom is corrupt or incomplete. It should be ~155 MB. Make sure the checksum is correct.

    2) Make sure it is on the root of your SD card. /sdcard/Frankenrom.zip.

    3) Make sure that it is not named Frankenrom.zip.zip.
