    Okay, I have received several PM's on this but tonight, someone asked me to give a complete step-by-step walkthrough. It's Easter and I figured I could use the good Karma :D

    I have removed the name of the user that asked for this even though they didn't care...I just prefer to keep it anonymous and if that person identifies himself...cool...I just don't want to do it.

    I figured this might help someone else so here it is:

    Just to add:
    Make sure your phone is fully charged first (seems obvious but I and many others have been lazy in this area).
    Do a Titanium backup first of apps and app data (you do NOT want to restore system data from Titanium as setting up your new ROM's basic settings from scratch will yield best results).

    I'm currently using DroidMod and thinking about switching. Do I just go ahead and follow this guide or do I have to delete DroidMod first? (N00b here obviously). Thanks.

    You don't have to delete DrioidMod.
