Re: Possible help on root
Once you run that 3 in 1 tool, it will give you root AND CWM Recovery.

It's got your system, data, cache, bootloader all saved so you can restore it if anything goes wrong. You can even have a NANDROID of multiple ROMs that you've installed and RESTORE from that NANDROID, bringing you back to the exact state your phone was in when you made the backup in the first place.
It's highly recommended to keep your favorite NANDROID backup on your phone and also keep a copy of it (and copies of old versions, just in case) on your computer.
Once you go into CWM Recovery, you can navigate around and see what's possible. Simply make sure you have enough space on your internal or external storage, then choose to make a backup there, and it will do it automatically for you. That's step #1.
