    Ok so I plan on rooting my phone tomorrow and I have a few quick questions.
    1. I downloaded all the files needed and im wondering do I need to unzip them, and by that I mean odin and motochopper.
    2. Should I run a md5 checker on the kernels I downloaded?
    3. This pertains to the md5. My kernel files say .tar.tar not .tar.md5 how do I fix this?? This got me when I tried to root my s3 and bricked it. Ive got a few pics to show.

    Thanks.
