    OK, well I have a month old i5700, which allready has eclair 2.1 on it.

    I would like to root it, to be able to remove some of the rubbish that 3 reckons I need, and to get stuff like live wallpaper.


    However, whilst I am quite tech-savvy, I'm never attempted anything with a phone before. I want to ask some questions, but feer I may just get the read the root threads answer, which I have.


    How do I make a backup of my phone?
    Which settings do I need to write down? And where are they found?

    I have;

    Firmware version;
    2.1-update1

    Baseband version;
    i570EXXJC1

    Kernel version;
    2.6.29 root@SE-S611 #2

    Build number;
    ECLAIR.XXJCD



    What is the best firmware to go for as there is so many at samsung-firmwares dot com?


    Ta for any help.

    Only thing about backing up your phone is I didn't find appbrain much help. Got it all working and linked to my google acc, but it didn't sync after the update, just told me I had nothing on my phone and lost its list of apps that I had.

    It might just be easter to write down all your apps, and get them again through market, paid apps still show up.
