Thanks for the replys.
I was wondering if there was a way to take a nandroid backup before installing the CF-Root & CWM recovery, as if needed, I would like to revert the phone to its original condition (i.e. original recovery + original android ).
So if I were to install the CF-Root kernel, then install CWM recovery, and I then make a nandroid backup, this nandroid backup will contain the CWM recovery and CF-root. Right?
Is there a way to revert the phone back to its original condition? (i.e. without CF-Root and CWD recovery)
In answer to your first question, YES, when you 'NANDROID' backup it backs up your entire phone, this includes the recovery and kernel.
I will answer your second question with a question:
Is your phone unloicked? or Carrier branded?
If your phone is carrier branded like mine (on Three) then go here to get the original firmware and kernel:
If your phone is unlocked however i cannot help you.
Please make a note of the kernel version you already have as this will help you select the correct firmware/kernel.
WARNING: As you may know Rooting will VOID your phone warranty so Please be careful.
If you do this, even after flashing back to stock firmware Samsung can still tell your phone will have been flashed, as it will say in download mode (Vol down+home+power)
To resolve this issue you will need one of these:
I hope i helped you, If i did leave a Thanks somehow
P.S I will NOT be held response able if your phone gets damaged in any way during this process.
