    Try Wugfresh. Download the software on to your computer and it will take you through it.

    ok, I watched this video, seems pretty easy but the only hing I'm wondering about is backing up my SD card/phone so that when I unlock and root I can get it all back, I don't know how to back everything up.

    What sort of error are you getting?

    Outside of backing up, what have you done? Have you unlocked, rooted, or anything else?

    And I haven't done anything but backup my DCIM, downloads, music, movies, photo folders onto my computer like another video told me to do. Also said to do a sync before I do anything but I can't

    Well at the bottom of your screenshot it says "It will be back shortly." Perhaps, it is something on their end (although I kinda doubt that lol).

    Perhaps try removing the account and readding it, this sometimes solves some weird problems (usually market issues).

    Otherwise, I would figure out what one is the culprit, and then troubleshoot it. Something like [Q] Sync is currently experiencing problems. It will be back shortly - Page 3 - xda-developers <-- posts 21, 22, and 24 have things I would try if it were calendar or contacts. Browser, there is a link in post 25 with a potential fix to it.

    I get that sometimes after a full wipe & installing a new rom. But when I select my account it will show it syncing. And after a few minutes it's back to normal & account synced.

    The contacts method didn't change anything, and I thought for sure it would because I just re-did my phone the other day with everything GO, but it didn;\'t fix the problem. But I narrowed down the sync problem to my Browser data not Syncing. It's the only thing in the list that won't sync, and it doesnt seem important to backup/sync before I root/unlock my phone so I'm just going to skip that.

    Feeling the urge to give up again, tried about 3 times and keep getting error messages, or things that idn't work properly. Doesn't help that every time I watch a tutorial video it links me to a ToolKit that is supposed to help, but the Instrunction and Video are for an older version of the Kit and aren't the same exact steps as what they are telling you.
