Will that recovery is useful to retrieve the corrupted data?
I’m starting to think towards rooting my i927r to move to ICS or JellyBean. I read these articles about rooting the phone, and the dire warnings. :D
Can you offer a pointer to what I would do to either (1) backup the existing ROM for later restoration _before_ rooting (if possible) or (2) restore the ‘stock ROM’ to the device if I fubar it ? :)
I suspect Keis will be the answer to (2) – which I can deal with. I’ve not experienced a ROM update from Samsung yet. On my (previous) HTD Desire HD both updates I received were OverTheAir – no special vendor software. But I suspect the only way to receive a vendor supplied update is via Keis.
Also, while I own a Rogers version of the i927, I am actually located In Australia – importing it was the only way I could get a decent smartphone with a “real” keyboard.
Thanks for some interesting ‘food for thought’.
