    Sorry if I'm asking a question that's been asked, I searched I promise...

    Quick and easy Q: I gave my OG D1 a coffee bath (RIP baby) and the LCD is shot. Got a used one off craigslist today and am using my same SD which has all my fave roms, kernals and Clockwork backups on it. Do I still need to go through the root procedure or can I just flash the Clockwork recovery from ROM mgr (which reinstalled when I signed in) and reinstall a backup or fresh copy of one of my .zip files?

    Don't most of the custom roms include root access just like the update.zip does in the SPRecovery method?

    Thanks in advance!

    If it matters, the new phone is on FRG83D stock.

    I believe you still need to root it. The SD card may gave the rooted info but the phone wont accept it without root access to run the necessary programs.
