    Help

    I want to root my bionic tonight and I would like to do a backup of my stock 902 first. Is this accomplished by holding power and up and down keys at once, then going into recovery? Then I will do the motofail root

    You have to rooted and bootstrapped or safestrapped first to do a back-up

    So here is my scenario, when i put my sd card in my new bionic, it already had the previous safestrap version on it from being rooted from my other bionic, which was running 893. Will that affect putting another version of safestrap on my newly rooted 902?

    Just delete the folder or rename it. Probably wouldnt cause any issues to keep it but removing it is ur safest bet

    Ok, Im rooted and I have safestrap installed and everything seems to be peachy. I did my backup externaly and that went fine. Now comes the fun stuff, I would like to mess around with some roms. I did freeze about 10 bloatware apps and the device seems to run fine without them. Everytime I download a rom, will i have to unfreeze those apps. Also, I would like to thank everyone for their help and patience up to this point. I will probably have more questions for ya.
