I fancy rooting my Desire and the instructions seem simple enough, but one thing I'm confused about is backing up my phone before beginning the root process. All the backup suggestions appear to need "root-enabled" tools to complete; Nandroid etc. So its chicken and egg, I need to root to take a backup, but I want to take a backup pre-root??? Granted, there isn't much to save I suppose as all my emails, contacts and apps are attached to my gmail / app brain accounts. But what about all my messages in say Handcent, i'd like to keep all those etc. Is this possible? Any suggestions would be welcome.
