    Does anyone know of a method to root a Samsung Epic without the assistance from a PC?

    Do I backup before or after the root?

    I may be wrong but if you backup up before you would not be able to restore nor would they work. At least that was the deal when I rooted. That means that you will lose the data (call log, text message). Not a problem for me. Once you root make a backup of the OS and the apps then install/flash a new rom.

    Hope this helps.

    The only problem I'm having is registering at xda so that I can open up the z4 file. Its not letting me register.

    That's what I tried. There is a section in the registration where you have to put some kind of a puzzle together and its acting up on my phone for some reason. Its all good though, I'm probably going to root my phone on Sunday with a buddy who wants to root his HTC Evo.

    Now before I do this, I will be able to put my phone back to stock later if I choose?

    I know I probably sound like I'm worrying too much, but paying almost 300 dollars for a phone and then seeing the warranty floating above my head makes me nervous.
