I want to root my Huawei s7-303u Springboard (Mediapad) it has ICS 4.0.3 and I want to put Jellybean or KitKat on it for any upgraded functionality. (Specifically for the HDMI WIFI streaming) But I'm worried about losing my installed apps and all the settings of the system (configuration, network, display, audio, homepage settings, icon positions, etc.) I'm also worried about any impact on performance if I do it. Reason for that is I have an iPhone 3G which I jailbroke (which I understand is pretty much the same thing as rooting) and although everything worked afterwards my GPS in it had dismal performance compared to stock. It worked only about 30% as well as it did before I jailbroke it. Can someone point to a detailed instruction process that will let me save my downloaded apps and program/system settings and restore them on the upgraded system/firmware/os? I asked over at the XDA Developers site but no-one there seems to want to help me with it. I'm still fairly new to Android and although I usually pick up things quickly I think I would like idiot instructions only because I'm nervous about doing it like I was with the iPhone. I've read you can brick Android as well. Thanks for any help anyone can give.
