    Ummmm.....soo.....really stupid question. (But I'd rather ask it then be a moron and screw my TB up).

    On the original post page it says the root will wipe all data on TB... How do I back up everything on my phone first? I do not want to lose my apps (well mainly the ones I paid for), contacts, txts, etc. So just a simple copy/paste of the sd card contents to my pc?? Or is there some other/better way?

    Any other "prep work" to do before starting the whole process?


    Sorry, I just really don't wanna brick this $600 machine. I am tech-savvy, but a rookie with Android (since 3/17/11) and have never rooted before.

    If you go to the privacy settings menu, you can set your phone to backup and restore.....apps you bought you can still download from market if you go to my apps in the market.

    DroidXcon here,,,,, thanks fryetech. i have added a couple things to the batch file and and posted a newer version up in my original thread

    [Auto] Root and Unroot (Windows)**Updated**4/20 - Android Forums

    if you could take a look id appreciate any feed back, the biggest problem i am having is maintaining connection, for some reason peoples connections fall out in the middle of the the process and things wont get written. i think there are multiple instances of adb.exe happening aswell.

    So with the latest batch i put commands to kill server . i even have adb devices loop until a connection is made.

    i tried to look at your method originally but i had no idea what i was looking at so thats when i decided to write my own.

    @ flooritnfly, download sms backup & restore from the market. It's free with a donation button. Works perfectly, runs quick.

    Does this work with the newly leaked signed update file?
