easy peasy japenesey! done! took all of 7 minutes total. just a few notes on my experience: it says to press the volume up + camera button at the same time. it's easier to just press and hold the volume up then press the camera button. also, once it's finished navigate back up to "reboot now" and press the gold center d-pad key. and it took mine a lot longer to boot up, so just let it set somewhere for a little bit. it just showed the droid eye for about 4 times longer then it normally does. my notification panel is super fast now. yeehaw!
