1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Ok i have been looking all over and cant seem to find any instructions on what i should do before i root.. I want to have a backup of my phone just in case i have to flash it back. Is that a pointless procedure if not a point in the right direction would be nice if i am just being blind and cant see the thread

    Well you cant backup before root. Im not familiar with rooting the d1 so not sure how its done with it. I would back up your texts if its done by wiping though. I use an app called SMS Backup+ for it (free in market), it saves them all in your linked gmail account and can restore them as well.

    Thank you for the speedy reply. I get what you mean now that i think about it. I have another question if you would be so kind. I have the 2.2.2 update on my phone right now. I downloaded soup or root on my computer followed the instructions step by step and it does absolutely nothing except that it makes it seem like my connection from my phone to the computer keeps dissconnecting and reconnecting.. Any thoughts?

    (edit: just looked at your posts also Nice 1111 posts :D)

    Can't use Soup or Root after the 2.2.2 update. Try this:

    READ. READ. READ. And READ again. Do not start until you have everything you need and have fully read through the instructions or you could brick it.

    Using that thread you could have made a stock backup.

    Just an fyi.
