    Is your phone recognized by the computer? If not you might have to instal drivers? Plug it in and see if it is recognized. If it is then you are good to go I think.

    The tutorial have specific instructions of what you need to do and run on your computer, just follow them carefully. There is no need to worry about anything else that wasn't specified.

    My phone is recognized by my Windows XP computer. I will probably root it today.
    I have noticed people wanting to unroot their phones, wonder why they would want to do that.

    People unroot for various reasons. For the most part, they've experienced some sort of problems that needed to be taken to the Verizon to get fixed or replaced. And then there are those who are new to rooting and flashing ROMs, and instead of sticking to something stable, they would go flash beta versions and/or did not follow instructions carefully--they'd screw up the phone, freaked out, and then wanting to unroot. And some just want to go back to stock. All varies...

    Ok, 1 more question hopefully. When root is done, does that mean here isn't any operating system on my phone and I have to flash one on? Or is the original operating system still on and I can use it? Well 1 more lol. If it is still on can I let it update if it want too.

    Once root is done, you won't notice a difference except for the new "superuser" icon in your app drawer. Make sure you make a backup before doing any modding. It is entirely up to you if you wish to install a custom ROM after you gain root access.

    1 last question. If I uninstall pre-installed stuff and down the road need 2 unroot, does the phone return 2 the state it was in with all the pre-installed stuff back on? Or is the pre-installed stuff gone 4ever?

    If you uninstall anything that came installed on the phone you won't be able to update till you put it back. Once deleted, always deleted. Easiest way to get it back on is to SBF the phone.
