    Since i'm still a noob at this I find your guide very useful. I do have a few questions.
    - for backup/restore you are talking about rom manager and also CWM . Are they both necessary or juste having CWM is good enough?
    - And was wondering if you could add the steps on how to unroot without flashing back a rom. I know I read that somewhere but cant find it.

    Will keep your guide close to me
    Thanks alot

    My hat is off to you, dakota, you have made an excellent resource! It has been months since I have rooted; I have forgotten so much! I've bookmarked your stickie.

    One request : I didn't see a discussion on why fastboot is important, or what it does that other tools do not. Unless I missed it, that would really be nice for us occasional flashers.
