Ok, so I just spent all night doing this........
It worked GREAT! Unlocked, Recovery, Rooted.......
I do have questions about removing the Carrier IQ, so if someone could PM me on the details of how to do it, THAT WOULD BE AWESOEM...(I wasn't able to locate them in Titanium Backup). All-in-all...BIG THANKS.

I also wasn't able to locate them in TB. I'm assuming that means the program isn't there. Would I be incorrect in assuming that?

No, not correct...There is another program you can use to remove the CIQ, I'm not at my comp right now, but its one of those "one-click" kind of things. Sorry I can't be more specific, but browse the forums...you should find it. But I've used it and my Carrier IQ is now removed.

Is the reason you couldn't find the IQ is because your running: MIUIAndroid_Holiday-2.7.6 ?
I'm just asking because I unlocked, rooted and flashed a stock ICS and I also can't find the apps in TB.
