Never did get z4 working, but SuperOneClick did the trick. Thanks a lot =)
Does a nandroid backup with bootstrap save all your apps and data as well?
Yes, that is the point of making nandroid backups, to save all of your user app data. Careful though, when on different ROM's, you don't want to restore too many system apps and system app data as it could cause some conflicting erros, always make sure to restore user app data only (like angry birds and other games and non-system apps). Most system app data is usually re-synced with your Google Account and any email accounts you may have used prior.
Ok. I came to this page through a suggestion in my thread "Facebook + Dolphin + Smart keyboard Pro = issue somewhere"
I downloaded the z4Root. I opened it up and took a look at what was goin on and it said "BusyBox" will also be installed. What is that and why?
I've never rooted my phone and I don't have all the other apps people talk about having when rooting their phone... what do I need? I think I'd like to stop bloat-ware. I have ES File Manager, will that be helpful?

You will need a specific Root File System explorer, I use the app Root Explorer, best root file system explorer in my opinion. There are a few sticky threads around here that will point you in the right direction of knowing what root is all the terminology is. A lot of helpful guides around here as well.
