    Question themes and roms: where to start?

    Hi, I know this is probably an overly asked question, but I just rooted my atrix and I want to start using custom roms and themes.
    I had a bad experience trying to do this without proper instruction, so I just want to ask more experienced people first.
    At the moment, I am only rooted on 2.3.4 with a locked bootloader. I want to start themeing and using custom roms so can someone tell me what to do next step by step to get a custom rom?
    Thanks, and sorry for the stupid question

    Read this - [TUT]Unlocking Bootloader and Installing Custom ROMs followed by this - Atrix Newbie Hacking Guide. and if you have any questions, ask them before attempting to install anything.

    Good luck! You'll do fine! Just follow the instructions to the letter, and post here if you have questions, before you act.

    I have much experience with unlocked bootloaders and custom ROMs on the original ATRIX. I will do my best to hold your hand through any problem, small or large, on any phone. Please open up a thread in the help section (or Rescue Squad section if your phone is in dire need) or PM me. I don't bite

    Okay first question:
    Are both of the guides you linked me to unlocking the bootloader? If so then i only have to actually do one of them right? Because i like the 2nd one better, so if I had to choose I would follow that one rather than the other one.
    Sorry if this is kind of confusing, and thanks for the help!

    Essentially yes, it is nice to read through both of them because they will give different information and you will learn the most (and have the safest procedure) if you read both.

    ok i have a lot more questions:
    1) I read somewhere that there are some things you cant do w/ an unlocked bootloader that you can do w/ a locked one. What exactly are those things?
    2) What are the pros and cons of an unlocked bootloader?
    3) I know that I will lose all data after unlocking the bootloader, so is there a way that I can back up everything(for example Titanium Backup) then put it all back all at once? Or will i manually have to reinstall each app one by one?
    And if there is a way to backup everything, will it just backup my apps or also all the files stored on my phone?
    4) After unlocking the bootloader will I still be rooted or do i have to re-root?
    5) And lastly, I will read both of the guides UltraDroid linked me to, but when actually unlocking, I will follow the second one, since I feel more comfortable with that one. Will that be ok, or do you suggest I follow the first one instead?
    Again, thanks for all the help!
