Backing up isn't too difficult on JB. I've done it manually as well as with Helium and other apps throughout the rooting/experimenting process. It's been my experience that those app backups don't restore properly and I'm left starting over anyway. The issues could be app specific, but I honestly don't remember which apps didn't work now.

Of course, I suppose it's all a small price to pay to have a phone that actually works when I connect my BT headset.

Where does one find the stock recovery?

I hope this isn't silly, but I've been running custom recovery forever and I'm blanking as to where to locate/d-load the stock recovery.

thanks!

Not sill at all. I have an image that I believe is the stock recovery, but how can I be sure?

OK, well after dusting off the cobwebs and reading some threads for the Intl version I learned this... the stock firmware will also contain the radios and stock recovery. So now I'm looking for the correct firmware to match my phone's CID and Modelid. The command to dump these variables out is 'fastboot getvar all'

My AT&T OneX+ reported this:

(bootloader) modelid: PM6310000
(bootloader) cidnum: CWS__001

There's a txt file in the firmware.zip that will contain a list of the applicable CID numbers the firmware can apply to. Evidently since our phones are S-on an entry in the list must correspond to the device's reported CID.

So now I'm searching for an updated firmware.zip
