    I think "rooting" involves 4 steps:

    1) Unlock bootloader (does nothing except add an unlock icon to your startup screen)
    2) Add Super user permissions (allows you to modify your phone and add "root" apps)
    3) If you so wish, you can now flash new ROMS, including the original stock ROM (but the phone will still be unlocked)
    4) The really brave can perform other tricky stuff such as update the kernel or flash a new radio

    Step 1, 2 and 3 are harmless, but with step 4, it is possible to "brick" your phone (render it useless).

    If you skip step 3 and 4, you still have all the benefits of rooting, while still using stock ROM. Am I right? Correct me if I said anything wrong please
    I think so. But how do step 1,2 please?

    Well, normally I'd say "Google is your best friend", but I'll help you a bit further :D

    Follow step 1 to 4 (or even 5 and 6 as well) of this excellent guide: http://www.nexusoneforum.net/forum/n...-cyanogen.html

    Then stop, don't go any further, if you wish to keep stock, you're done
    My sigs keep getting
