    I have been reluctant to root but my friend just rooted his T-Mobile Samsung Vibrant. Now he is bugging me to root. I am interested but have no idea what I am doing. I looked around but there is too much info and not a good "Rooting for dummies" type thread.

    Anyone willing to link (to a thread I didnt see) or share to help me out.

    I need some pro and cons of different ROMs.

    How to root for semi-dummies (my buddy will help me through. I am not an idiot, but he is semisavvy rooter.)


    For me, I am looking for better battery life and performance. I use Launcher Pro Plus and Goto.

    Sorry to ask what I assume has been asked a million times, but I had thought there would be a thread like this tacked up top.


    (I have an HTC Incredible.... edit to add)

    There is a sticky up top posted by woop.

    I used this guide and this guide to do mine. I spent a weekend reading and learning about it then away I went. It's not difficult at all take your time and know what your doing before you do it and your good to go ;)

    Thank you for helping out a total moron. How I missed that sticky is unknown to me and probably will never be figured out.

    I would love to claim to be new around here, colorblind, blind, asleep, sick, or tired...... none of which are true. I am just that dumb. (note to those ready to tell me that a total moron should not root, I like to think I am not that dumb and I do have a friend who is rooted who will help me walk through).

    Now, if anyone has any thoughts or tips to add, I would appreciate it.

    So much information to go through and too little brain power!
