You won't brick any thing just follow directions and read!

Yeah Like swalker said be sure to read...I'm sure your on. 605 ..but hard menu>settings>about phone...to root you'll need a computer ...and you can get that from the blue link in my signature...:)....next you should grab d2 bootstrap from the market ..it works great on gingerbread....open it up...hit bootstrap recovery...ok to success then reboot recovery....it'll reboot..then scroll down to backup/restore with volume buttons>select with camera>then choose backup>it'll backup your current state...so if something were to happen you have a nandroid (backup) to restore...then reboot system ..that's probably the biggest step to do first after root

welcome... as stated above... have no fear... with how our x is set up.. it's pretty much impossible to actually brick...lol... luckily...
and rooting and stuff is pretty easy...
if you have any other questions or what not.. .feel free to ask and join in

give it a sec.. it should start downloading automatically...
the you'll just need to extract all the files to the same folder and run it
