I have an IT background and a Computer Science degree but this is my first Android phone. So far I am in love with the Nexus and ICS. From what I have read online and in the forums, there is sooooo much more that we will be able to do with our new phones.
I want to root using the easy method that sbenson posted in the sticky but I have 1 question. I currently love how I have all of my widgets and my background setup . I have everything backing up through my Google account so after I root, will it restore how my phone currently looks (home screen, background, etc) or will I have to re-do that?
