    I'm looking for some advice. I'm thinking about rooting my Vibrant. I have no experience with this kind of thing but have done some reading and watched some videos on the topic.

    My questions are:

    1 - Is this risky- is it easy to screw up the phone beyond repair?
    2 - Can I undo the rooting once it's done?
    3- Are there many advantages to rooting?

    I mainly like the idea of being able to delete stock apps and would love to have the wireless tether capabilities.

    Any feedback would be much appreciated.

    Thanks - SNS

    Ok guys, be easy on me. I rooted and put a lagfix on my Vibrant but I want to get into custom ROMs and learning how to properly backup my phone.

    Here are my questions.

    1) What exactly are ROMs and are there any Froyo ROMs yet?

    2) Do ROMs have the chance of bricking your phone?

    3) What the eff is a "Nandroid" backup as opposed to a regular backup?

    4) Since I have rooted and want to use a custom ROM, will I still get the official Froyo update? (when it finally comes)


    If you can answer each question seperately (by number) that would be GREAT!
