    Default Help change my mind..

    I really want to root my charge but am uneasy about doing so with odin cvm playing with kernels etc... I rooted my dx just fine when i had that using Rom manager but now i am nervous with all of the guides i have found.

    Does anyone have a step by step guide that has a walk through and explanations.

    At this point i want to root but am definitely hesitant.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    The easiest way is to download the full gummy charged ODIN package, it roots your phone, roms it, installs the kernel, and recovery for you. All you have to do it download this file http://crackflashers.com/Kejar31/Gum...din.tar.md5.7z then you open ODIN, put your phone into download (pull the battery, hold up while plugged into USB, put battery back in when you're on the download screen, the Charge dies sometimes without it) and then choose PDA, choose the file above after you extract it, and push start. Once it's installed, it will boot up, power down into recovery, clear cache, dalvik, and you're good to go.

    I second what cfox said, but if you do not want to go to a full blown new rom, I am pretty sure there is an debloated stock odin package floating around that does the same stuff...

    I know, decisions decisions...

    I'm loving my decision to root and rom. When I did it I really tried to break this thing. I bricked it twice, and shat myself the same number of times.

    Then I jumped on these forums as well as xda and found all the "OMG WTF" forums and unbricked it. I'm now running gummy charged 1.9 with the black alien theme, and loving the speed.

    I say go for it, just do your research...even the "how to unbrick your phone" pages. There are plenty of smart and responsive folks here to talk you off of a ledge if things go sideways.

    So once I finish the initial odin process can I use rom manger like I did with my dx to flash the black alien theme?

    IF not what are my next steps

    If you go under DroidXCons Altered Beast Odin Flash on this page he has not only instructions but step by step guide with pictures! Then at the end he has a trouble shooting section for what could go wrong.

    No I do not believe that the Rom manager works with the Charge, someone can correct me if I am wrong. To flash Black alien, you would download it, put it on the SD card, then go into CWM and install the zip file from there. The Black alien thread should have the instructions

    I've read that you should never use ROM Manager on the Charge under any circumstance.

    Also, I always recommend this thread to anyone who's wary of rooting/ROMing/kerneling. The OP breaks things down to a ridiculously simple level, and it's nearly impossible to mess it up. For the Black Alien Theme in particular, you'd move the files to your SD card and install using CWM, as the poster above me said. As always, following the procedure outlines in the ROMs thread : D
