I'm quite new to the whole tinkering with your phone scene. I recently wanted to update my motorola triumph from 2.2 to 2.3 but seeing there was no update from Virgin Mobile, I set out to the internet to find a way to do it. I ended up downloading cyanogenmod 7 (restored I think). As far as I know, I downloaded it all correctly but I still have fears of "bootlooping" or "bricking". When do these things usually occur? And if I have cyanogenmod 7, is my phone considered rooted? Sorry for the newbie questions, just trying to figure everything out.
