    OK, I used Soup or Root to root the phone. I see that i have root access. I installed Rom Manager. But no matter what rom I try to install, I get the little triangle with an exclamation point with the phone below it. I am sure I am missing something. Help a newbie out? So far I have tried to install bugless beast and cyanogenMod.

    You need to install a recovery. Use rom manager to install clockwork.

    Got it. I did install the clockwork orange, but it didn't take the first time. Re-ran. It installed, I'm golden. I cant believe I didn't root sooner! This is great!
