    I used the all-in-one toolkit over on XDA . Here is link to it : [TOOL] HTC Rezound All-In-One Toolkit V2.0 [3-25-2012] [Noob-Proof] - xda-developers it was fairly simple. Just make sure you read and follow instructions thoroughly.

    The Rezound is next to impossible to kill/brick so long as you don't go S-Off. As long as you stay within the HTC safety blanket, then you're good.
    Around here, however, we don't look backwards for very long.
    We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things,
    because we're curious...and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.

    If getting rid of bloatware and all that VZ crap isn't reason enough then I don't know what is? I mean, a fricken golf game? Not a golf fan!! NFL Live app? I don't even watch football!!

    Ok, now that that's out of the way, the pro's would be de-bloating, receiving updates while the big V sits on them (many of us have been enjoying ICS for several weeks if not months now and Sense 4.0 as well), and a level of customization that you can't attain by sticking to "out of the box." Another pro is being able to make complete backup's of you entire system. Can't do that with unrooting. Also, in a weird way, it's satisfying and enjoyable.

    Con's...well there's the warranty thing if you're into that. Some ROMs can be buggy so be careful what you load onto your phone, that's the price you pay for being on the cutting edge (though a ROM based on an OS that was released months ago isn't really that cutting edge anymore).

    As you'll find out, there really isn't much you can do to this thing to brick it. You may get into a tight spot but there's always a way back.

    You could root, see if it's for you and if not you could still go back to unrooted though that may leave the dreaded "Tampered" label on your bootloader but honestly, who looks at that?
