I have went through steps to create a backup of what I have now, but the file is just over100mb, far from the 200mb ROM files that have been uploaded here, so I am not doing something right. My screen was inverted after root, and it took me forever to fix, so I would like to backup just in case I need to reroot in the future. The steps and files needed to root this device are a bit scattered...I think it would be great to have it in 1thread...i'd do it but I am a noob and unqualified to compile step-by-step instructions of all the threads that deal with rooting the 3 versions of the 9742 that people have. I think the guys here have been great for figuring this out and sharing how to do it. If these devices ROMs can be modified, then can't the apk files have thier permissions edited? I have seen how to edit the permissions in the Xml files, but something in the code is still requiring access st crap it doesn't need, and shuts the file down. So how does one find the correct place to modify in the apk's?
