After a few requests, I decided to make a few simple to read, easy to follow guides on installing custom ROMs, official ICS updates, rooting & more. They go into great detail and are written with everyone in mind, regardless of your computer or Android knowledge / skill. Even a 5 year could follow them! If you have any questions, spot a mistake or have a suggestion, let me know.

You are 5 > You're 5.

don't buy memcards on ebay, may be fake.. try Amazon or Play etc for reasonably priced, fast, genuine cards. Sounds like I work for them?

Had quick skim of guide, looks good. Nice that you link here for ROMs rather than being too specific.

Unfortunately I couldn't get it to work for me, makes me feel quite stupid. Installed drivers, ran rooting .bat, but SuperUser never appeared in my app list - I checked with a terminal and it couldn't run SuperUser either. Any advice?

Can't believe I made that grammar mistake. I'm normally the one who corrects other people!

I tried on a Laptop Windows 7 x32, UnlockRoot, same error, failed :(

Stay away from Windows XP. Start the guide from scratch on the Windows 7 computer. It should work as long as you make sure to follow every instruction.
