    If I follow the sticky at the top of the page for STEP BY STEP root, will it work for me? How can I be sure?

    Good, so am I.
    And I followed this guide to-the-letter and it worked for me with NO data loss.
    In fact, I just did this about 3 or 4 days ago!
    Just read thru it a few times to familiarize yourself with it, and if you have any questions about it, just ask:D

    After using this guide, you will have an unlocked bootloader, custom recovery and a stock rooted rom.
    You can now flash the rom of your choice.:)
    I am going to try the CleanRom this weekend:)

    Oh yeah....... Did you use method one or two? I am not sure which method is going to be best for me. That link for XDA,? is that for flashing a custom ROM Right? Not for rooting?

    That link for XDA is not for flashing a rom. That link is what you want to root.
    I think method 1 or 2 in this forum is for older versions of Android.
    I can vouch for the XDA method....I have used it.
    After that XDA method, I can provide you with a link for different roms to flash.:)

    Geeze sorry for the delay, I was distracted my wife who is 8 months pregnant. Gotta love it ;)

    After downloading ODIN ( Download and extract ODIN v3.07 - Link)

    I am not sure what extracting means. Do you?

    :)

    Yes, after download, right click on the .zip folder, and the option to "extract all" will come up. Click on that and it will extract it to a path by default or one you select. I usually just click "o.k." to what comes up.:)

    Edit: I moved your thread to this forum:)
