    I've decided to give CM7 a shot, BUT....

    .... what if I decide it's not for me?
    how easy is it to revert? I'm obviously new at this, and couldn't really find a clear answer on this.
    Any help would be appreciated. I have everything I need, and am eager to do it, but since I've never flashed a ROM before, I'm a little nervous, LOL
    Thanks,
    rick

    Use the Safestrap at http://hash-of-codes.blogspot.com/p/android-downloads.html
    F
    ollow Guidot's instructions [HOW-TO] Use Safestrap (backup and flash) (WIP)
    A
    nd it is super easy.
    As long as you make a good backup before you switch to "safe" mode and flash, you really cant mess up your phone too badly.

    It's very easy to revert just wipe data and flash a new rom or if you like your old one just restore your backup.
    Also don't forget gapps im not sure if cm7 comes with it , here is a link.

    http://bit.ly/wvZX2b <--- that is the ONLY cm7, its directly from Hashcodes blog. Don't be like another user and install the one from rom manager because that's a version for the Droid Incredible.

    Because you also have to flash Gapps located here: Goo-inside.me Downloads - Downloading gapps-gb-20110828-signed.zip

    and if you already accepted the OTA update you also need to flash this: http://bit.ly/xjEFpQ

    Thx. I got the one update back in Sept maybe? The one that fixed the radio / battery issues. Would I need to download then flash that last link first?

    Thx again for your help
