Good guide. I'd like to mention that instead of steps 2-4, what someone can do is just put update.zip (that is clockwork recovery) in your sdcard, just boot into 2e recovery, and reinstall packages so that clockwork recovery gets installed. From CWM you can just flash a rom. No rooting needed as long as the rom you flash has root permissions (which is most roms). I found this to be less of a hassle.
