    You can try the auto way if it makes you feel more secure. However, doing it manually will not break your phone. Just remember to read carefully, take your time, read and re-read again and again. Watch the videos, read again, etc. Copy and paste the commands, make sure everything works as indicated, one step at a time.

    In fact, I still (and probably always will) advocate rooting manually. It gives you a little knowledge of the coding, so should something go wrong in the future, you'll have at least a general idea of how to fix it.

    Not to mention it seems the majority of the people that come on here with problems after rooting have used the auto-rooter

    The guide helped me when I rooted the phone...I too was skeptical, but the guide knows all...The fun part is finding a Rom that you like...just remember to make a nandroid backup before reflashing roms...
