Hey guys, I've been a lurker here for a while, just now posting.
So basically, I want to root my and I am going to use the guide posted here: How-To Root your stock 2.1 Droid
My question is about backing up my apps and, more importantly, my contacts. If I root my phone, does it erase all my contacts? I assume it does, if so, where do I back them up to for safe keeping? Also, further down where it has the nandroid backup, where is that backup written to? the SD Card?
