    If I were to flash a ROM, but wanted to revert back, would I have to sbf?

    I still haven't flashed any ROMS yet, because I'm still researching them. If I were flash a ROM, but wanted to go back to my normal theme which was the one before I flashed the ROM, would I have to SBF and would I lose my root? I'm on the latest Gingerbread update. I rooted after updating to it. Does SBF cause me to lose my root? Thanks,DXS

    You can and should make a back up of your stock rooted phone. After you flash a rom you could flash back to stock rooted following the proper steps of course... If you sbf, and that's OK to do, you will loose root. Do you have d2bootstrapper yet??? You will need it to take a snapshot of your phone for future restoration if desired...

    I would backup and then wipe data, cache and dalvik cache before flashing just to be super sure. Im real paranoid about bricking my phone so.

    He was talking about making a nandroid (backup) through d2 bootstrap. The nandroid comes in handy if you need to revert back to your previous setup if something should happen while flashing. There is a how to use bootstrap on this site.
