Hi. I wanna ask about the CWM.
Let say i now backup the 4.1root (/stock), then i :

1) flash/update to 4.3 166 stock, can i recover it back to 4.1 if i dont want to use 4.3?

2) flash to any ROM, can i recover it back to the backup i did?

my question is simple, just if i update, can i recover it back to the old firmware or not.

thx

Not sure how you did your backup or how reliable it is, and I am not sure that backups can delete your 4.3 existing cache, etc (leading you to a hybrid hung system)...others more experience may chip in.

In my case, I backup appz and data (only) using titanium.
I updated to 4.3 or customised ROMs. Didn't like them and downgraded it back to 4.1 and re-rooted each time (as long as you have the full original 4.1 FTF file). Then restore my apps...

There are a couple of tutorials on "downgrading"...
