Hey guys, I recently upgraded from my precious S3 (bless your capabilities) to a new S5 (meh).

Long story short, I want three things:
1.) to find the right person who can use my stock AND3 firmware and extract it to create an ODIN-flashable file (is this possible at all?)
2.) understand the best way to create a backup of my current device state
3.) achieve root, which seems insanely easy thanks to geohot

My knowledge of android thus far tells me to root and use Online Nandroid backup app to create a backup. How would I later restore this backup when I want to unroot and restore my phone-state & files to pre-root?

Thanks so much in advance, and please feel free to put my knowledge on blast lol

UPDATE:
-shortydoggg has nice a post over in the general forum, but I still hope to be able to get a flashable file for AND3 instead of having to downgrade and then do an OTA again

You're asking too much if you want specifically AND3. It literally takes 1 minute in order to update to the latest firmware via the guide...

All of this you could've found via Google... *sigh*
