Ok so i want to put a rom on my phone now but have some questions.... After i rooted my phone i went and loaded all my contacts and dowloaded some of my apps...app list backup, sms backup, busybox installer pro, Titanium Backup pro, and dropbox....i've been using the phone a lot calling and texting n whatnot so basically i was wondering if there was anything i had to do before i flashed a rom?? can all that stuff stay?? or do you gotta get rid of it all like when u do the factory reset before rooting?? In the flashing section it says make a nandoid backup, and im just wondering why?? I have the nandroid backup from after i rooted, already on the sd card...is it because you are adding the new .zip files to your card? I think im gonna try the Mik 2.45 rom and see if i like it....is there a kernel that runs really good with that? or is the one already in the Rom good enough?
