Regarding a root process I just did

Recommended Posts

I followed the guide on DroidDen, and it seems I have SuperUser permission etc. But it said in the guide it would wipe all data from my SD card, which isn't what happened - Everything is still there, like, nothing was erased, not contacts, SMS messages, apps, data... Everything is still there, same settings as before the root... Only difference is I now have the Superuser Permissions program. Is this OK? Should I be worried? I was actually petrified while doing the root process, but it seems the phone is working fine.

Just help me out with realising I really did it all the way it should have been, and that my phone is in top-notch shape...

Thanks :)

P.S: If I install the custom Modaco ROM, is there any way of including Hebrew fonts and keyboard on it, like I got the phone from the shop..?

did you install a modded ROM ? or did you do a data wipe? looks like you didn't but if you're not sure then try to install ROM manager from the market place if it works fine then yes you have root access. To get Hebrew fonts install Dejavu fonts pack ;) here you go follow this guide

I didn't install a modded ROM yet, I just wanted root access.Thing is, the guide said the process would wipe my data, which it didn't.. Which I felt was weird, like, I still have all my contacts, preferences, etc. Nothing was wiped at all.

Another thing - I did a nandroid backup - I saw the files added into the clockwordmod folder on the SD card, how would I go about restoring this backup if the newly installed ROM wouldn't work?

Thanks :)

Rooting your phone using e.g. unrevoked will never wipe any data. Just manually installing a rom does.

the same way you backed up but this time choose restore ;)

And hitting the restore automatically chooses the nandroid backup? Or do I have to manually pick the date of the backup I wish to do? I'd like to install a modded ROM, I'm just worried that if I can't get the Hebrew to work, or the mod doesn't meet my expectations, I'll have a hrd time getting the system back to the way it was, with settings, data etc.. I couldn't really find a total idiot-proof guide for backing up and installing a modded ROM.. Like, literally with screenshots and everything. Any chance someone could do such a guide..?

with nandroid you're safe trust me I have restored many times. When you hit restore you get a list of dates (folder names) just select the one you need and sit back :)

Don't worry about the fonts either I've installed "Sinhalese" which is a rare language and only one country use that :) so I am pretty sure you can get Hebrew to work woth DejaVu fonts pack. Just read the text file in the archive which exactly describes what fonts it has and the unicodes it supports.

Sounds OK.. Only difference is Hebrew is a right to left text rather than standard left to right.. Does DeJaVu deal with that problem too? What about keyboard input languages..?

Thanks

I must say this font pack only allows you to read things it will render Hebrew for you but if you're looking for type in then you must install a Hebrew keyboard as well which I don't know whether exists :)
