    Quick questions, I just rooted my Droid using the NON ADB root/superuser method. My only question is should I have backed up my phone before doing this? Just in case anything goes wrong, hopefully it's not too late.

    I would back it up before you did anything else. Root is just an access level. so as long as you haven't monkeyed with anything, back it up now and you should be ok.

    Okay cool, what would be the best way to go about backing it up?

    Read this thread. Pay especially close attention to posts # 10, 13, 16, and 18. That dude seems to really know what he's talking about. Or ... he's full of crap. You be the judge. :)

    I assume you will be flashing the new recovery ROM to your phone. After you do that I would suggest making a backup of your stock ROM using Nandroid and saving it somewhere on your PC, so you can easily go back if you decide to play with other Roms.

    The ROM scene for our droids is really starting to take off. It won't be long before we get Sense UI/Rosie fully ported.
