    Right people, can anyone help? Want to try cwm and also cm7. Have found guides on here and xda but my question is how can I revert to my officail firmware and recivery if I want to switch back? Have seen chismays sticky about changing from cm7 back to gingerbread but can I back up my current rom for reflashing if I want too? And then also go back to stock recovery?

    When you re-install stock ROM package with ODIN using tutorial, your recovery CWM is replaced by stock recovery, and you device returns to original (without CWM, without root, etc.)

    Note: You can install CWM over stock ROMs. I suggest to use CWM 4 over Android <= 2.3.4 and CWM 5 over Android >= 2.3.5.

    Hi, a few more questions if thats ok:

    I have downloaded this cm7 is this one the best for ace?

    When I factory reset in cwm do I leave sd card in?
    Will loose all my apps and have to reinstall?
    Justbto confirm, I factory wipe in cwm, install cm7 from zip, apply the update fix, reboot and done? I have already used backup in cwm so presume that if something goes wrong I can use that?

    Thanks in advance, just new to this and want to get it right!
