    so im going to root my phone as soon as this is answered..how do i back my evo up?

    im going to root it with 9.6 baked snack , i dont see whats so good with 9.7 unless it includes everything that 9.6 has but how do i back up my evo so i dont lose my apps i downloaded and everything else?

    also how do i download the 9.6? do i do it on my phone or do it on the computer than mount the phone as a disk drive and drop and drag?

    For backup there are programs that let you back up apps. Still, I tend to find it easier to just install Appbrain and then sync back when I am finished.

    My main concern is about you rooting. Make sure you follow the directions closely. The best way I have found that doesn't screw anything up is the toast 2 step method. It looks intimidating but I spent so much time undoing the things that Unrevoked and Simpleroot screwed up it would have been easier to just do that from the beginning.

    You will have to install a custom recovery, unlock NAND, flash a custom ROM, etc. and you should definitely read the tutorials carefully to avoid frustration.

    Like many other tech things, it can be a project for an afternoon and there is a learning curve but once you finish the process you will have gained some valuable skills and taken control of your device. It's well worth it in my opinion.

    Took me a month or so to take the plunge but after one frustrating day yesterday I got it all worked out and I am loving my Evo even more now.
