    What would be of most help is for us to know WHY you want a rooted phone and WHICH custom ROM you want (and why). Having a rooted phone gives you absolutely no advantage unless you want to do something that can't be done with an app without root (which, for most users, is absolutely nothing).

    And almost any custom ROM you install will already be rooted, so rooting your current ROM is a waste of time. (And almost anything you do with a custom ROM you can do with apps.)

    He didnt say he was asking for why he should root or anything of the sort, seems like he was asking for assistance installing CWM. for many devices rooting first means you can flash recovery.

    the instructions are right in the first post http://androidforums.com/vital-all-things-root/809158-cwm-beta-working.html when junkie has it working to how he wants im sure he will submit it to rom manager and thus will be install-able via the app.
