Hey guys... deciding whether or not to root my Photon 4G. The thought of having to wait so long for ICS is driving me nuts and I figured I could flash CM9 on it. Which shouldn't be a problem. Except I am a total newbie and pretty much need step by step instructions cause I don't know anything about rooting and flashing roms. Any help would greatly be appreciated!

Not to hijack your thread, but I'm a first time rooter as well. I'm trying to figure out how to add clockworkmod. I used qbking's video to root, but I'm stumped with the CWM. Is it possible to flash ICS, etc without the clockworkmod??

Thanks,guys.
