Question New LG Connect

Just bought the LG Connect 4G, upgrading from the Samsung Admire.
Before I root it, is there anything I should do before I mess with it?
Also, I noticed LG Connect users use ROM manager to install CWM.
I need some help with this, I've rooted/flashed every ROM available for the Admire threw using the ODINS/CWM.
What Im trying to say is...
I need some pointers on how not to mess up my Brand new LG Connect.
Is there anyway I can backup, just in-case I have to send my phone in?
Should I use ROM manager or is there an ODIN to get CWM on there?
It came with version MS840ZVA fresh out of the box, will I have any problems rooting it? (before bricking)

I would appreciate feedback.

Cool, didn't know you could back up ROM using rom manager, as on the Samsung Admire you coundn't do anything
Going to backup with rom manager , Then Install CWM .
Don't I have to be rooted in order to install CWM on the connect?
Thanks for your input. I didn't want to make the same mistake twice, as I didn't backup my original ROM on Admire.

You can't backup with ROM manager THEN install cwm because ROM manager uses cwm
