I rooted last night using mkbkr1's Guide to Rooting w/o Computer, and I posted about my experience (nerve-wracking, LOL) at the end of that thread, plus some questions. But traffic there was nonexistent today, so I need to ask just a couple questions so I can move on in the process. I just want to be sure I don't do anything to mess up my phone. (Thanks so much to everyone from the Rooting w/o Computer thread and all the other great people on this forum who have helped me so far!) According to the instructions, I did this: "Before starting, go to setting-applications make sure unknown sources is checked, this will allow you install Gingerbreak from you sd card, then click on development and turn on usb debugging." 1) Now that I have successfully rooted, may I uncheck those boxes? 2) How do I ever get back into that recovery boot menu? Why and when would I need to do that? EDIT: and, how do I know that my backup even worked? Where would I see it and how would I ever use it if needed? 3) I now want to use a brand new 16 gb class 6 sd card. Can I do that without messing up my phone now that the root/recovery files are on my original 2gb sd card that I used last eve? In other words, what about those files that are on my stock card...do I still need them? Should I copy that stuff onto my computer? My recovery backup is on that stock card I used for the root. What happens when I replace with the new card? Do I need to do the recovery backup again on that card? Will switching cards mess me up now? 4) Per "optional" instructions in the rooting guide, I deleted app "gingerbreak" from app drawer after rooting. But in androzip, I still see gingerbreak on the sd card. Does this matter? Should I delete it? How? 5) I did not install Rom Manager...it was not in the OP instructions. Do I need it? why/why not? EDIT: 6) I think i have xionia recovery. what if i want a ROM that requires clockwork? can i switch recoveries? how? OK, that is the selection of my most pressing questions post-root. I hope it is OK that I copied these from my other post in the aforementioned thread...and added a couple new questions. I'm just afraid to move forward and do anything with the phone until I understand all those issues. Thanks so much for your time and help!!!
