    All the links to root this phone are down, are there other links elsewhere that are still up? :/

    Also I'm completely new to androids in general, so "hacking" tips or whatever are welcome! thanks for any help! :D

    You don't think telling anyone what phone it is would help?

    Have you tried youtube? Thats how i learned how to root my q. The name of the video is "rooting the optimus slider/enlighten/Q" by mstechify. And they have links and stuff listed. The hardest part for me was finding the exact drivers i needed from the lg mobil support tool program. But some computers can automatically detect and download the drivers(i think). Just read the description.

    Im pretty newb at all this too undeadaura. A rom is basically like a custom interface for your phone. you know how your phone operates at this very moment? with limited options on customization and stuff. well when you flash a custom rom, it gets rid of the old and its in with the new. Its basically changing the way your phone operates and feels on the inside. you'll be able to change the # of home screens, change what your icons look like and almost anything. Thanks to the spectacular developers and everybody else here on aa51.
    So do you know what clock work mod(cwm) is?

    Its a coustom recovery for your phone you use it to backup ypur current rom and you also use it to flash new ones you use it to flash zip files that change your theme and all kind of other things partition your sdcard. Just go to the board on this site for the Q and you will find the files and the how too

    cwm is a custom reboot recovery interface.(if i said that right)you need it to flash these awsome roms.  not like the stock recovery. your going to be absorbing alot in the next day or two...yeah what dlongnasty said.. ;) just be careful about what your doing. if your not sure about something, just read it all very carefully and use common sense.

    Did you type in terminal commands? If so turn your phone off and then hold vol.down plus home key then power untill recovery boots up. If you see cwm recovery it worked

    you navigate through ClockWorkMod options with the volume keys and select with the camera button(remember there are two presses built in the camera button) but dont do anything with the recovery until you read entirely through on how to do a backup and all. and flashing your rom. and if you want more "internal" space, carefully read the "a2sd" thing on the home page.

    To do a nandroid backup just boot in recovery and select back up and restore option and then select backup.oh yea the go back button on your phone also goes back on cwm.
