Couple questions / clarifications before I root:
1. Is it recommended to do any type of backup of the phone beforehand in case things go wrong or in case I want to go back? Settings/Contacts/Apps/AppData do not matter to me.
-If yes, what is the best way to back the phone up?
2. Is it recommended to Factory Reset the phone or format the memory card prior to root?
3. Any recommendations for someone who will be using Windows 7 64-bit? (Saw some posts about setting the USB mode to Charge Only if things weren't working.)
4. If I want to un-root and I use the rootzwiki bomb stuff, do the things in Menu > Settings > About Phone go back to the original versions as if I just got it from VZW? (Baseband Version, etc.)
I come from an Omnia i910 background (2+yrs of flashing and modifying the heck out of that thing) and I always had the stock updates I could flash back to in case things went wrong or in case I needed a replacement (never did, but I'd hate to have a savvy tech tell me my phone info is 1 character off and that means I rooted and voided my warranty - would like it to be as transparent as possible if I want to go back to stock).
Any help is appreciated. Look forward to learning and helping as much as I can!
