Great thanks for your response, so fast....
I am very grateful to you...

Hey guys, just had a couple noob questions:

1) I understand that this will wipe data/cache/app partitions, but does this process also wipe sdcard (dcim, music, etc...)?

2) Does rooting the stock ROM stop over the air updates?

Thanks guys, I would greatly appreciate if someone can just shoot a quick answer. Thanks again!

Hey CSP--

if you are getting ready to unlock, it will wipe all but sdcard--backup first anyway

i don't think you will receive OTA's, but you need to unlock to safely install them anyway. there are threads on it

i am running LeeDroid 2.1, 1.78 baseband and see no reason to worry about OTA's as like our N1 the devs have this stuff out before the Carriers do--

Thank you so much! I wasn't thinking straight lol. I would love to get the stock ROM off as there is so much bloat ware! Thanks again for straightening it up, cant wait to get back to root!

sorry CSP, I meant to say relock before installing an OTA

just watch the OP pages on flashing instructions

it is a little more tricky with the different basebands and EU roms than the N1

some roms require fastbooting the boot.img first, then the rom

i have read almost all the rom threads and info/wiki threads front to back, just to be safe--but, I am OCD--

what exactly are you typing at command prompt

you need to have usb debugging checked on phone
you need the recovery image in same folder as your fastboot.exe/adb files
you need to cd to that directory/folder
you need the recovery image in that same folder
you need to be booted into bootloader with fastboot highlighted
and phone plugged into pc

you have to type fastboot flash recovery recovery.img

where recovery.img is the exact name of the recovery image image you put in the folder where fastboot/adb is--usually tools or platform tools of your sdk

you can check the exact name by right clicking the recovery image in the folder and going to properties. I usually just copy and paste that into the command line
