Rootkeeper isn't necessary for 2.3.4. It could actually cause problems with flashing the rom. Use Pete's one click.

Which rom(s) are you looking at? The flashing process is cake! Which part of it is confusing? Everyone can help you!

Indeed we can help. You can flash cm7, eclipse 1.3, liberty (its not all that great), and molten rom. I recommend eclipse for stability and cm7 for customization. All you will need to do is install the bootstrap recovery and use it to make a backup of your stock rom. Then wipe data, cache, and dalvic cache. Then flash the rom of your choice. Cm7 requires a few extra steps but we can cross that bridge of we get to it.

Is there a 2.3.3 version of Eclipse? Let me know which version you want to use.

Here is a skeleton walkthrough just to give you an idea:

Make sure your device is rooted

Download the appropriate version of Clockwork Recovery abbrev. (CWR)

Download the rom of your choice and any other zips you need and make sure they are on you EXTERNAL sd card (very important but DO NOT freak out if forget, these things can be fixed

Install CWR from inside the app labeled System Recovery
Your system will reboot into CWR.

Whilst in CWR you want to wipe Cache, Dalvik Cache and System Data
(things will be muy poopy if you dont wipe sys data and Cache; Dalvik not so much)

You would then proceed to 'install zip' --> 'install from SD card'

Find the zips need to flash the rom, let everything work, go back to the CWR home menu (the first one you saw)

Hit 'Reboot device now' and bam, you just flashed your first rom!!!


For future reference: When a developer or anyone for that matter says you have to flash a zip file, the above process is what you would follow; sans wiping the Big Three (Cache Dalvik Cache and Sys Data) though some zips may require to wipe one of three and the poster will tell you which one.

Once you decide which rom you want to flash, Ill give you a more specific walkthrough.

The first thing you want to do is upgrade to 2.3.5. That is the kernel you need to be in in oder for Eclipse to work.

You really always want to nandroid when you are installing something semi big. You'll save root and time if something messes up. Do you know how to nandroid? It takes about 15 minutes to do
