Ive actually been want to try to I have a guide somewhere for adding just the screen shot feature. What SW version you on?

Butttt you will need recovery if you want me to even try it since it involves the Framework and the android.policy jar. I wont attempt if you dont have a back up

stock/rooted technically still isn't rooted.. you still dont have full root prms with the stock kernel.. not to kiss my own ass or anything but if you like stock than i suggest trying ld-lg, it's as stock as can be, but debloated and few ui tweaks.. comes with power menu i think you'll like it & there is the 'plauged rom' by pg, took a stock approach with that rom as well.. if you want all stock apps in it i think there a thing for that in ATR guide (forum sticky)

No. I've tried.

I didn't look into that much though so it might can be done

you can make a backup of your apps with titanium backup.. and blackup your contacs,sms,mms,log calls with MyBackup pro and after wipe and do a fresh install

external or internal.. here's what you do

boot into recovery, go to backup/restore and make a backup of the DATA only, then flash the rom without wiping anything.. reboot and try it out.. if anything the worst case scenario is you DO need to wipe data, (can try to restore data but may cause issues again) which then you WILL have to start from scratch.. BUT it should be ok considering the supplied kernel with ld-lg is basically stock

or you can do the titanium thing.. it up to you

nope, debloated roms will make battery last a tad bit longer and faster. (IMO)

just make a backup of your apps,

Make the necessary wipes: Wipe Data, Cache & Dalvik Cache .. but if you want to save time .. wipe all with the scrips of Ldrifta:
[Time-Saver] EZ-Wipe All-in-one

recommend the EZ-Wipe LD (Full), but before the flash, make sure you have the rom in your SD
