If I choose option 1..will I be able to unlock the boot loader with the app from the market? Then at that point make a backup with cwm (the only one I'm familiar with so far) and flash another rom like Cleanrom or the leaked JB rom? The second method just sounds like a pain in the ass..if I can basically accomplish flashing roms with the first method..that's the one I want to do. I would also want to do this to make the backup of my original "rooted ICS" software that came with the phone..am I thinking correctly here? I rooted my old Droid x..and even figured out Linux for the 621 update nightmare that screwed us for a while..I would look at that file as my SBF? I just need to know what my safety net is here..the second method sounds like I would loose my "original" software..
