    Not really and not really. I would just root then backup.

    I don't think so. I would just do the ISO method.

    I've had my DX since last November. Before being laid off, I was IT Manager for my old company, did tech support, prior to that, etc, so I'm not a tech noob. I never had any issues experimenting with my PC but for some reason, the thought of wiping my phone, trying to root, etc just makes me kind of panicked (I live and die by my phone now). I'd love to OC it, etc, but just can't quite bring myself to do it.

    So, noob questions before I get started. All the apps I've downloaded, games (progress, etc) would need to be moved to my SD card first, I assume?

    No, anything you have bought from the Market will download for free after a wipe, same if you got them from Amazon or Appbrain..If you use Titanium Backup Pro or MybackupPro, you can back them all up and restore them after a wipe/flash etc..

    +1, no one was more skeptical of this than I, yet I have not lost a paid app ( including Amazon Free Apps of the Day) yet. Also, Titanium Backup let me cherry pick all my other apps, and restore with Data (e.g. Angry Birds with all my stars, Homerun Derby 3D and all my outfits).
    GS 3izzle but still rollin with the best forum ever...

    Shouts out to Wulf, XJacobX, BKDodger, Peakyboo, Mapatton82, Jersey, Rickw and Popcenator on the assist. It's good to be back!
