1) Backup: Your accounts should take care of this if you've installed them. Google will handle contacts, Samsung will handle Text/MMS and call log, dump your photos into DropBox if you've completed the 50GB bonus steps. And yes, TB will handle app data.

2) Unroot and Stock: Depending on the modifications made, you may simply have to use your SU app's unroot function, flash the stock recovery back and then wipe the phone. If you did more than that, there are links on XDA describing how to return to stock.

3) Update the New Phone: Skip initial setup and download all firmware updates until your version is MF9. Perform a factory reset so there's no software conflicts that cause overheating and other issues. No, rooting will not be blocked.

4) Root the New Phone: Make sure you use the Sprint download!

5) Before anything else, install Recovery and make a stock backup: Takes just 10 seconds
