I'm currently running the excellent GR5 Modaco ROM (and am eagerly awaiting a final updated version ).
However, the 'home' button on my handset isn't working well, so I'm sending the handset off for repair (the first time I've ever had to with any handset, so I'm hoping it's not a sign of Samsung's quality...).
As such, I'm hoping to restore the handset to factory settings -- both to remove all personal information, and to remove any evidence that it had been rooted and ROMed.
I own one of the USB jig/dongle thingos that resets the flash count, but I'm having trouble finding information on how to restore the factory ROM, and, indeed, which ROM to restore.
I bought the handset from www.mobicity.com.au and I *think* it's from Hong Kong, but I can't really be sure (there were a lot of Asian languages available when I first got it). I'd like for it to have the original firmware on it, so as not to arouse suspicion.
Is anyone able to point me in the direction of a good 'restore to original ROM' guide?
Also, am I correct in thinking that, once I get the handset back, that I can just root it again, then restore the CWM backup I made before factory resetting it?
And another important question:
What if I get a new handset (rather than a repair job), will the CWM backup still work?
Many, many thanks!
