    My phone comes in tomorrow and I am not sure how to interpret one step. I was just downloading the necessary files and wasn't sure about this step. Sorry for perhaps a noob question, but I just want to be sure not to brick my phone.

    Step 2: Extract the Android SDK zip. Move the contents of the extracted zip to C:\
    Your Android tools folder path should now be C:\android-sdk-windows\tools


    I guess when I first get the phone, do I install something previously or am I just creating this folder and placing the contents of the zip into the folder I make?

    Thank you!

    After you download the zip file from the XDA site you will need to extract the contents. The path you listed above is the location where you will extract them too. While extracting that location should be created automatically.

    Thanks for the response!

    So, I don't need to run the SDK Setup file after extraction and just concerned with the "Tools" folder?

    I'm not looking at the instructions at the moment, but as I recall I don't think so. Just follow the guide and you will be all set.

    I think I read somewhere that the sdk setup is for android development. You don't need it to root, though
