    Thanks Hawker, nice one.

    I think you aught to have a go at a kernel of your own, I bet you could do one. Mind you having said that the flak gokhanmoral gets is IMO not worth it.

    Nice one old stick!

    That'll save me a lot of fannying about flashing multiple kernels and CWM Recoveries. :)

    There's usually a reason if Hawker goes quiet...

    1. He's cooking up a new mod or script for the SGSII. (Happens all the time thank goodness)

    2. He's watching rugby and then down the pub. (Most Saturdays)

    3. He's enjoying his conjugal rights. (Leap years with a blue moon in them) ;)

    Hawker/Ironass, can you confirm that the following is correct.

    So I'm going to flash a new rom. Currently on an LSJ build.
    I'm guessing the steps to back-up and restore my rom (if I need to) are as follows:
    Back-up using CMW
    Back-Up preload/partition using Hawkers thing.
    <New rom goes to shit at this point>
    Restore using CMW
    Restore preload/partition

    That's about it chadley78, I'd also do a Titanium and efs backup in addition to the nandroid... just in case. ;)
