Hi

Yesterday i got myself an U8800 aka ideas x5. I'm happy with the phone, but i have few questions about roms and Boot.img
-If i change to super boot, and then back to stock, will it remove my root?
-Is there a place where i can download stock rom if i need?
-If i install Clockwork, will it be gone if i replace it with stock recovery?

As i had blade before i am not totally noob, but this is still very different from what it was to change Blades roms.

- Root stays.

- Yes

Just install Clockwork and then install ROM with it. I had Blade earlier too and it's not that different, only installing Clockwork is different.
Here is nice guide for lots of things http://android.modac...e-huawei-u8800/

Thank you pelemane. I already read that ultimate guide. I took backup with clockwork, but it's goot to have 1 rom in internet too.
And the root is removable with control panel?
Yeah, it was like blade when clockwork and etc. are installed.

I actually don't know how to remove that root. Maybe with some app (universal androot, z4root..).
What do you mean with control panel?

Take backup from boot.img and recovery.img. Then install clockwork and take backup with it. if you need to remove your rom
-replace boot with backup
-from clockwork restore your back up which you did earlier
-restore recovery from backup.

To install and other guides, got to

some part copied from ultimate guide
1) power off your phone
2) Turn on your phone while holding VOL+ and VOL- (should come up with pink/purple screen)
3) Connect to computer.
4) Go to My Computer and Browse your phone to find the folder with boot.img in.
5) Copy Boot.img and recovery.img from there to you computer.
