They really do get upset in here when you don't know as much as they do.
Let me help...
Run to this thread and read up:
There is an automated script that will help you with the root. Many users, including myself had to run it a couple of times before it took - so if it doesn't go off the first time, don't lose faith, just try again.
As for whether or not it wipes, that's moot - You should, after you run the hack flash a custom rom - this will wipe your data
. Any ROM you like from the dev forum will do. I am using Froyo v21. But you can certainly try any one you like. As for non-Froyo roms, I like the Cyannogen ELB builds. But again it is your preference that matters.
To flash the new rom, you need to boot into recovery mode. If you run the script from the above thread, it will boot you into recovery mode. If you use the instructions in this thread, type "adb reboot recovery" at your command prompt immediately after you are done. Once there, you can do the following:
-Do a NAND backup
-Put your phone into USB SD mode and copy over your ROM of choice to the root of your SD card.
-Do a factory wipe and a dalvik cache wipe
-flash your new rom
When you flash the new rom, depending on which one you do, you should have su or root. You can then download and install apps that require root.
Remember, you should back-up your data before you try to do anything to your phone. It's just a good idea.
If you have any ROM specific issues, try looking through that ROM's thread for answers. Also, if you have any other questions about how to do anything, the first sticky thread in this forum is a great collection of how-tos. You can also PM Me and I will be happy to help.
Don't forget that a lot of hard work went into rooting leak. Do like many of us have and donate to those responsible.
