    I'm very much an Android newbie, but have been dealing with desktop computing since DOS 5.0/Windows 3.1 days.

    I'm giving some thought to rooting my phone simply to get rid of stock stuff I dislike, and my husband claims that a lot of useful utilities (like backup software) requires root access.

    Before I take the plunge, is there a way to restore to factory settings if I screw something up?

    It's a cakewalk even if you weren't a long-time PC user.

    Like Austrie said, install CWM, make a backup and rename it "VM OEM" or whatever and you can always revert to it.

    I recommend trying all the ROMs to see which one works best for you.

    One note: If you rename your nandroid backup, make sure that you don't use spaces in the name. That's been known to cause md5 mismatch errors when you try to restore them.
