Question Quick question about rooting.

Hey all,

I just ordered an G2 and when it arrives I want to install CM10.2. I have a quick question. When installing a new rom will it delete any backups that I made previously? If so, is there a way for me to store the backup of my stock LG rom/ui on my PC for safe keeping. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You can make a nandroid backup which you can store on your phone's SD card or on your computer. This requires a custom recovery, however, thus meaning that you will have backup of a stock, rooted device with custom recovery.

Remember to back up your EFS partition too.

You can download your stock (and unrooted with stock recovery) .kdz here


EDIT: You can install TWRP without root Sorry for misleading informations!

Just replace YOUR IMEI with your actual IMEI
