you need to unlock the bootloader to install roms.

Also thread reported. Didn't search and wrong forum.

Best way is doing a little research before wasting your time opening useless threads in wrong forums

First this is the dev forum and your not a dev nor dose your thread lead to anything that is under development or hasn't been developed the hell out of to where its not relevant anymore, second you asked a question >,> there is a Q&A section for I don't know questions and answers <,< last you admit that you found multiple guides in your last bit so.... do tell why is this development with over 400 posts..... O.o Id like to see you come up with a good explanation.....
Atrix - NottachTrix4G + DebainMod (for image loading XD) + webtop2sd + other mods XD

Captivate - Anything I feel like using at the moment XD (currently TEAM ICS atm)

FFS, you could have just answered the dudes question with one post without bumping the thread to the top all day long.

Now, THE ANSWER IS: there is no best way. It either works or it doesn't (either successfully gives your root or doesn't).

Having said that, the most bullet proof way according to people's feedback is the preinstal method, BUT... CWM method and gingerbreak also successfully worked for me both on 2.2.2 and on 2.3.4.

p.s. People on here are right. You only create new threads in Development section if you developed something. You could have just left a post in one of the root threads, or opened a question thread in Q/A forums.

Cheers.

Rooting isn't required to install a custom ROM. Unlocking is.

Anywhoo, the dev section isn't a questions forum. Before you post, read the stickies.

Infraction given to OP, thread closed.
