    The guide says the latest build, 4.22.651.1 is not root-able. I think either you or the guide has a typo?

    Well, my week blew up last week. So, I'm looking at this now. Seems rather daunting, I must admit.

    After several panicky moments, I got it back to Froyo. Now Z4 Mod seems to hang...

    Did u ever figure it out? Z4mod is hanging because u have to check the USB debugging box in settings/applications menu. If u don't it hangs while its going in and checking the box for you

    It seems like it's better. I'm an obsessive charger-user, so kinda hard to tell. :)

    I'll probably move to a different ROM at some point, but resetting settings doesn't sound appetizing to me right now... :)

    Cm4dx is cyanogenmod 7 for our phones and miui4dx is the chinese version of android that has been ported over to our phones. Both are stable but still have a couple of bugs to work out so thankfully cm4dx is updated nightly and miui4dx is updated every Friday

    No need to be. For me the main issue was battey life but ur mileage may vary. Besides if ur always near a charger or have an extended battery u dont even have to worry about that as much
