    I need to get a replacement for my phone and would like to have everything backed up. If i use the unrevoked tool to make a complete backup, then I just downgrade to lose the root correct?

    After I receive my replacement and reroot, then I just reflash correct?

    How do you "just downgrade"? I did a factory reset but I'm still rooted.
