    sprecovery is just a menu that allows you to make backups of your phones current system. And allows you to restore those backups...as well as let you mount various parts of your phone besides the sdcard, wipe your phones data and cache......

    all you do is intall the app, and you will select the rom you want, and the app will do the rest and boot you into recovery and you will just need to select the options you want..

    theres many benefits, overclocking, custom roms, i was in the same boat as you, but i love being rooted.. you can always go back if you don't like it..

    hopefully this will be my last post so i will make it good...




    Final questions i hope..
    When do you have to worry about bricking(when you start to or when it is running or when uninstalling)

    Is it really worth it for a noob like me but i loves new things so..

    what exactly does it accomplish besides overclocking getting 2.1 early and custom roms(what are they lol)

    and any other suggestions





    sorry haha

    sorry haha


    i'd say its worth it, read around do some research, its the best way to learn about all the cool things.. i could try to explain, but i'm no expert, just look around the fourms and the internet and it'll all make sense.. sorry im not much help with the technical parts.. lol.. hope we've all helped.. lol
