If it's important enough to cause you grief if it's lost, back it up. No excuses
Trolling for thanks is lame
Does Samsung's auto-brightness implementation crap drive you to self-harm ? A solution !
Failure to search is the leading cause of male impotence on XDA
If you don't know how to recover if things go wrong, what are you doing flashing custom roms ?

DONATE TO ME
What I normally do is root so that I get cwm to make band backups and I can use fancy apps that help for further steps.
Unfortunately you'll have to read 1000s of posts about kernels/roms and how to use certain tools.
I'm no expert myself,but the more I read,and like watching you tube videos,the more I learn.
Also,you've got to tread carefully if your phone is still under warranty and you need to send it back....lol
