Helpful Hints with regards to Rooting -
It seems alot of people are getting confused with rooting of the phones, and what they need to do, and it mostly seems like people from other phones, and well the obviously new person. I just want to help with his, as some of the threads are getting and I can see it being tough to follow a 40 page thread.
It seems to me alot of the confusion seems to come from the fact of the lack of locked bootloader, along with using ODIN to flash. I'm quessing everyone from HTC phones is used to a multi step process in regards to flashing root, as you have to load a hacked bootloader, turn soff etc.
If you have a stock ed2 charge. All you need to do is run jt's root/voodoo/cwm kernel found here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1092114
ffd173 in post 108 has some nice instructions on it. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&postcount=108
The stock rooted roms you are seeing are (root stock ed1, root stock ed2) you can consider a rooted basic backup. Do not use CWM either the one from jt's kernel, or rom manager for backup and restore until a recongized dev says its okay. Use titanium backup for your backups and restores. It has been recommended a few times to not even touch ROM Manager yet, based on the way it is written to work vs what is here and how it is written
***one thing to note is that if you install a kernel using the voodoo lag fix, you must disable it prior to flashing back to any sort of stock based kernal/rom or any non kernel with the lag fix.
