    trying to root and get to step 8 where you type su. It tells me "su is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file." Did I do something wrong? I followed all the steps. Can anyone help me? Someone....anyone.....

    rooting 1.5? or 2.1? Must be 2.1...in which case, I can't help you since I haven't tried to root 2.1 lol.

    My best suggestion would be to start from scratch again and make sure you didn't miss anything (also, make sure USB debugging is turned on, that's always been the most common mistake)

    Once you root, make sure you make a nandroid backup. This is explained in the tutorial. From there, it is up to you. My suggestion is to try a ROM out. There are lots out there. Do your research and see which you like best :).

    I am a novice. I have been reading the tutorial and forum on rooting (the step-by-step instructions seems to make it easy), but still have a question. What do you do after it it rooted?

    You say "Try a ROM out" but I am not sure what you mean. I hear you can remove Sprint bloatware, but not sure how once it is rooted. Is there an After-Rooting Tutorial or something that explains the options in simple terms? Not sure where to start my research because not sure what to look for.

    Many thanks in advance!

    Directly after the tutorial (near the end after the auto root section) it talks about flashing a ROM. It also answers the remove bloatware, but that is up in the FAQ section. There isn't a "after rooting tutorial"....yet :).
