First time rooting, custom rom etc - Android
    #16093869 - 04/15/12 05:04 PM (5 years, 5 months ago)

Im sure many of you have rooted and flashed your android phones.  I have been wanting to do it for a while now. 

Damn, its confusing.  At least, it is before you learn it!  :tongue:  For my phone I need to install 's-off' too... 

So I head over to XDA forums and look for some noob guides.  Man, that forum is about the most hostile place to noobs that there is on the net.  I find my way to this thread...  http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1192300

Christ...  Of course I get stuck on step 1.  Cant get the 'revolutionary' program to recognize my phone. 

Under step 1 there is a numbered list that goes 1, 4, 5, 6, ...  :facepalm:

the thing with droids, they are either stupid easy to root, or you will become a brain surgeon first.  good luck either way, i game up on them a long time ago.

you're not root by default on an android phone. by hacking it, you can become root.

am I on the right track?

Some things like meditating are really hard to do. It can be easy at times but it's generally pretty tough. If you accept that it's difficult you can try it and get good at it. That's the choice. The more you tell yourself it's easy though the more likely you won't do it. If you want to get really good at something often you have to accept how difficult it actually is to develop a technique to get good at it. After all one of the hardest things you can do is be honest with yourself, an ego is not an easy thing to battle. Learning to accept defeat is often the best way of getting over it and finding success. Repeating the mistake is usually though the most human of choices. These are the truths of life.

yeah you pretty much got it.

you want to be able to make changes on the phone as the root user. which is disabled by default.

I have an HTC sensation.  I haven't had much time with it.  I have managed to get s-off and a rom clockwork recovery thing.  I haven't bothered to root it because I have learned that rooting is not necessary if you are going for a custom rom because the custom rom should come rooted.  Root access is done within the rom.  (makes sense now that I know of course...)

My next step is to find a rom I want to go for and load it up!  Actually, my next step is to back all of my shit up.  Ill back it all up ( I read that 'Titanium something or other' is good) this weekend and then load some rom onto it.  I think I would just like a vanilla ICS with no sense or the like, but I will read a bit and see what other sensation owners like.
