So... this might sound like a stupid question, but I'm curious if there is a way to backup the phone before rooting? After reading many of these threads, it sounds like rooting, while for the most part can be pretty safe, is a crapshoot. Many posts say things like "Here are the top 50 benefits of rooting! (Oh yeah, but you could brick your phone.)" haha I like to take precautions when possible.
Thank you in advance!
