    The HTC Inspire 4G is the first Android phone I've ever owned, and this is my first phone I've ever rooted and have installed a custom ROM on it.

    I followed this video: to root my phone with absolutely no problem.

    When rooting, make sure you type MMC0 when using the adb shell /sys/.... command on the CMD window! Don't do the same mistake I did by using MMC2!

    You can also follow this video: to install a custom ROM on your phone!

    Happy Rooting!

    PS - I would also like to add that after rooting and installing a custom ROM, I'm getting the follow upload and download speeds:

    Someone on the xda site is developing a noob-friendly way of rooting this sucker. He's speeding right along with it too.

    That I don't know. I would head over to Android & Windows Phone: Tablets, Apps, & ROMs @ xda-developers and dig through the development secion for the Inspire. The answer will be there. I'm on Windows so I don't want to say one way of the other and be wrong.

    From what I've seen so far, rooting is a lot to absorb and I won't lie, I was really nervous doing it to my new phone but the upside is that you can remove all the crappy bloatware off of it and install custom ROM's. The community over there (and here for that matter) is really helpful so if you get stuck or have an issue they can sort it out rather quickly. I know this from experience. I tried rooting friday night and I couldn't get it to work but they got me back up and running. Good luck.

    Install HTC Sync. That will install the driver you need.
