OK, so I have a rooted and unlocked S3 on big Red's network. My clarification (I may not say this right, so forgive me) When I rooted my phone,I decided to use TWRP recovery. Now,this allows me to do what exactly? Custom recovery right? What makes this custom? I have backed up my phone using TitaniumBU the decided route was Apps+ system data. I have done a bit of reading, and still am not clear on the following. When I rooted my phone and installed TWRP did that automatically create a factory image point for me to restore to, or does having this just allow me to operate in the background in the event I make a mistake and soft brick my phone? The other thing I have done, is use TBU backing up APPS+ System data. Is this sufficient enough to restore my phone in the event I screw some thing up? I named this file nandroid and all I have done is copy that file to my pc. AND, I have a 16gb sd card I have been using from my old DROIDX. When I use my PC to view the files I have two options, one says Card, the other, Phone......... under phone, is where I found my TitaniumBU file. Does this mean I have been backing up to the internal storage? Does anyone know how to change that in TBU? Lastly, the nandroid file for my backup is for a rooted device. Does this matter? How would I flash back to the very begining before the ROOT? DAMN that was long for you to read. Sorry Again, I appreciate the help, and after I figure this stuff out I too will pass along what I have learned to someone new. This is not in vain LOL.
