why does every single person that uses recovery flasher to root their phone think they are entitled to have everything handed to them on a silver platter? there is a search button. there are numerous guides for every single question they are asking. then some of them want to turn and get smart because someone chastised them for asking a question in the wrong place or asking a question where the answer is clearly before them. their excuse " i'm a noob." so what, we were all noobs once at something but most of us researched stuff before we did it. my patience is growing very small for the questions that have been answered over and over. i think i might just start giving people links and nothing else if this laziness keeps up.

sorry for that rant but i feel i needed to vent

back on topic though. you might want to add something about the actual math needed to figure out the partition sizes, so hopefully what happened a few posts back won't happen again. maybe put something in it about linux-swap for those that want it? then again with the questions that are being asked i do not know how many people would even be able to use a userinit.sh file to even activate swap lol.

This is exactly how I feel! This needs to be patched already

sorry nephron for off topic post. i do not think it needs to be patched. mainly because it works for the mytouch and the rooting process for it is horrible. i guess i wish that people had more common sense but that will never happen.

You really don't have to install Hard SPL if you don't want to, you just won't have the fastboot option. But you really should install Hard SPL, there is no danger to installing it. You should update the radio cause without the new updated radio you might run into problems with dropped calls and BT problems. And update spl and radio the same way you would update anything.

Sorry for all the questions everyone who has been helping me. But im a little confused at one part.

I know it says clean sd card. but in the regular root process it says format to fat32 so if im looking to do this to a 1gb and havent formated it to fat 32 yet. Should i and then follow this guide or follow this guide and forget formating to fat 32?

@david: nice rant lol. I totally agree. People need to search and read before making stupid new threads.

@nickryan: If you dont format your card to fat32, the bootloader wont regognize the DREAIMG.nbh that is on your sD Card. So yes, format first then continue with this guide.
