If you are brand new to rooting and flashing custom ROMs this is for you. The SuperUser's Guide offers very detailed and simple instructions to all things root. Hopefully the SuperUser's Guide can help you avoid a few of the pit falls of customizing, and will save you a few headaches. The SuperUser's Guide objectives are to be detailed, practice good habits, and to teach along the way.
The Android forums are extremely important to me. It's these communities that make Android great, and it is not the guides intention to detract from them in any way. We STRONGLY encourage all users to participate in the forums. If you need any support or would like to comment on the guide please do so in the forums!
History of the Guide
The SuperUser's Guide was created by dakota0206 on 1/12/2012. It started as a few detailed instructions in the Samsung Galaxy Nexus forums at xda-developers.com.

The techie in me likes to hang out there and I am always messing with my phones. I started the guide because I always found myself and others answering the same questions over and over. So I decided to help out and write some detailed intructions for the most commonly asked questions.
The SuperUser's Guide started to get so big that it was out growing its space at xda-developers.com. As the guide grew it became hard to read due to the clutter. As I added more and more info, it became clear that the SuperUser's Guide needed its own website.
And that is where the Guide is today. There are general instructions for most Android devices, and I have just recently added more detailed instructions for the HTC One X and the Samsung Galaxy S III.
The SuperUser's Guide, dakota0206, or anyone operating on the SuperUser's Guide's behalf is not responsible for any damage to your phone. While we believe and know these instructions to be easy to follow and as fool-proof as possible, nothing can be guaranteed. You follow the SuperUser's Guide at your own risk.
