Here is what I want to do; right now on 2.2.1 stock 1. Root phone (Successful) 2. Install a custom recovery. 3. A. Make a back up restore point. B. Set up adb, so that I can do this. Mac or Windows. Either or. 4. Install a custom rom. There's a ton of guides but there's no one stop thread with everything like the huawei ascend board. I have created custom restores and messed with Rome on an ascend in times past but it seems optimus m is a bit harder. On a side note does anyone have a 2.2.1 back up file. You know, just in case. I'm happy to read up a lot follow instructions and patiently figure things out when they inevitably go wrong. Lol. Im looking for tips links guides and files.
