Thanks for the welcoming back!
That article seems a little incomplete yet still slightly helpful. If you notice, that is displaying instructions for the MyTouch Q, and the root guide isn't even for that phone, it is just reported to have worked. I still haven't decided if I want to root yet, but if I do, I'll definitely give that method a shot though.
The only reason I want to root, is so that I can remove these unwanted applications that remain ever so static on my app list. Mainly the generic looking antivirus they gave me. I would MUCH rather prefer to use Avast, or at least AVG.
