How to Root / Wifi Tether / Make my Inspire legit
Ok so basically I am a noob when it comes to these kinds of things. I just traded my Iphone 4, for a brand new AT&T HTC Inspire 4g. It seems like it is slow, and the battery gets murdered by my apps and such. Is there anyway possible I can make the battery last longer, and just make the phone itself look awesome. Basically I want a step by step guide and video that teaches me how to root my inspire, wifi tether, and install a custom legit ROM. I really do not know what I am doing nor have I ever done this. The phone is basically brand new so I DO NOT WANT TO F IT UP. Please someone help me out or give me some guidance on where I should begin, and what to do.

That's after rooting. You can get custom roms from that same forum over at XDA.
Again, Step 1) Root. Step 2) Install Roms. Steb 2b) Install 3rd Party apps

I am wondering if you search through forums for the answers.
Honestly, its up to you if you feel the phone needs to be better by adding customizations and such. If you like to tinker with gadgets, then rooting is the way to go.
The process to root can take up to 30 minutes, maybe less, if your tech savvy. If not, don't bother doing it if you're scared of voiding your warranty.

Did you follow the video? When creating the Gold Card with bubby's file, you need to have the phone set on Disk Drive with debugging enabled.
The CID happens when your phone is set to charge and its not being read by your PC.
PLEASE follow the video instructions.

Alright so I am freaking out, I HAVE to get this fixed. I followed all instructions on first video and successfully rooted my inspire, then i was following this video but i wanted to install cyanogenmod 7 instead of lee droid, so I downloaded a zip from the mirror, and then i went and used the 1.3 full wipe. Well the mod did not work once i wiped the phone and tried to install, so i went and got the proper zip and restarted the phone. Now it just sits at the screen that says HTC. What do I do?

You might also wanna re-dl that zip prior to trying again as it may be corrupt
