    We Ask The Hard Questions.

    Hey, dtowngangsta here again. After numerous failed root attempts I've decided to try VISIOnary but before I start I have a few questions.

    Do I need a computer to use it?
    I am running the Official MotoBlur 2.1 Firmware/Software whatever & I need to know what ROM i can use with it?
    Where Do I place the ROM once I download it?
    Do I just install and run VISIONary and after that my phone id rooted or are there more steps?

    It would be a GREAT help if you guys could answer these questions for me. Thanks a ton.

    From what I understand you just install and run it. BUT... It must be re-run on every re-boot, because it's only a temporary ROOT.

    I know that much, but don't I need a ROM?
    And where do I put it?

    You can install VISIONary just like any other app. Actually though I would probably recommend you to install and run z4root instead. You can download it from the Market and it should be a permanent root I believe.

    Are you looking for ROOT, or a custom ROM? Those are completely separate.

    If you want Preclair on your phone, then rooting is necessary. But now that you've rooted, you have to install the custom recovery, so that you can boot into recovery and flash the Preclair ZIP package.
