Re: Can you backup apps?
Scary? Confusing? Maybe if you had to get out the command prompt and start entering lines of code with no guidance but Unrevoked Forever really made it as easy and could be...literally like 3 clicks and took all of about 10 minutes (going from memory and it's been a while so forgive if it takes more than 3 actual clicks of the mouse)

I didn't want it, Verizon thought I should have it but I paid for the phone, not them. After I realized how easy flashing was and fool proof it is provided you take the necessary backing up steps first, well after that it was game on. In fact I held off on getting the Rezound until I was sure it was rooted and unlockable. Don't think I could ever go back to just having a regular phone loaded up with carrier bloat again...not to mention the fun of exploring a myriad of ROMs and Mods.
I'm not advocating everyone root their device, it's not for everyone and there are some risks though at this point the risks are very minor and almost all are easily reversable save for fooling with the radio.
