    Ya... It's what I got on right now... And it's so slick... And the setup is pretty straight forward and simple... Great for sometime who's just starting out with flashing or sometime who is wanting an upgrade over clockwork.... Coming from using clockwork so heavily for about a year... It's pretty refreshing... Flashed a couple roms/kernels/made a couple back ups and it works great

    Is there any advantage to using the manual unlock opposed to the Wugfresh toolkit?
    Nope... Doing it yourself or with a toolkit... same thing... One just does it for you

    hey Dakota, nice work!!!

    But i was reading on your Boot Animation section and I honestly think that you should put this procedure found in this thread instead Boot Animations

    It says to put the bootanimation.zip file in /data/local

    This way if you wanna go back to stock boot animation you just have to delete the bootanimation.zip you just copied. Instead of pushing it into System/Media folder where you could risk of losing the stock one if you forget to backup.

    )) keep it up I am reading your guide every day

    You can use WugFresh's toolkit for unlocking and rooting. Use the How to Flash a Rom instructions to flash a rom though.

    I think all of the custom roms available now are based on 4.04. At least all the major ones like Aokp, liquid, gummy, revolution hd etc.

    yah im seriously in the dark on this one. i downloaded the sdk and fastboot. but the terminal looks different than the one in the video. should i back up all my pics and stuff even before plugging my phone in? these are the first steps i have taken. am i going in the right direction? or should i backup and restore before i run the boot loader?im using a mac BTW. i have a pc laptop. is it easier to just do it from a pc?
