    ok so i barely got my huawei ascend and ive seen post that say to backup your apps and stuff. But since this doesnt have any important apps that i care about cant i just go directly to rooting without backing up anything? Also do i need to backup the rom or something in case something happens? If i do need to what is the best app for that? Also i cant seem to find usb debbuging on the phone where is it? Also im using gingerbreak to root my phone since i updated to 2.2

    Well, bacup your contacts with your Google account. You won't regret it. And you shouldn't have to backup your ROM, but if you want to, ClockworkMod can do that for you. I don't know if it's the best, but it's definitely good for it.

    If all you're going to do is root, you shouldn't really need to back up your ROM. But if you do want to be on the safe side, download ROM Manager and use it to install ClockworkMod and make a backup.

    Really, all rooting does is allow you developer access to your phone and tweak performance specs and such. Unless you're planning on flashing a custom ROM, rooting isn't going to change that much on your phone. Some people like it that way, so it's all up to you. :)
