    Okay, I got my Bionic. And like the idiot that I am, I rooted and deleted a few apps. :eek: D'oh! What was I thinking? So I replaced all of the apps EXCEPT the "Guided Tours" and "News" apps.

    A few things - I want to get my phone back to having all of the apps before restoring/backing up. Also, I need to know how to unroot if need be. And I'd like to get the recovery on my phone.

    Do any of y'all have a "Bionic Dev for Dummies?" post?

    Thanks in advance for any help and your patience of my ultra newb questions!! :eek:

    BTW - we were all n00bs at one time or another. I started out on Android less than 2 years ago, with the Motorola DROID (coming from a Samsung Alias).

    We're here to help - ask away. TBH, we'd rather you asked instead of forging forward on your own - we can help save you a bunch of headaches, because we've been there, done that at some point already.

    Agreed. The Bionic is my first Android phone.
