No offense taken! I appreciate the constructive criticism. That is why I posted this question. I am reading all I can and I won't be attempting anything more until I understand the concepts. I just didn't know where to go for a more simple explanation of these concepts since apparently I'm not as intelligent as 90% of you guys on this forum!
I have already rooted and unlocked my phone so that's a good start haha. I will now follow the advice given in this thread and hopefully learn enough to understand these more complex concepts!

I appreciate everyone's information and responses!

Thanks ya'll

Razr HD (XT925) - Rooted & Unlocked - Stock Rom yet
My Custom Tool for flashing recovery on XT925 and MB886

Events I passed through :
Backing up, Restoring with TWRP (2.2 and
Bricking my phone with a ROM for XT926 (...)
Managing to get back to my stock rom which got my IMEI back
Flashed a SlimKat 4.4 Beta Rom successfully
Flashed Google Apps into SlimKat 4.4
Gone back onto Stock ROM cause SlimKat 4.4 is too buggy (not even wifi)

Next event :
Flash SlimKat 4.3

at least there is a firmware superthread, but my cwm is for 4.4 only, so id have to flash another cwm to go back to stock jb
i find a titanium backup to be better, just backup my sms/calls, wifi keys, and user apps...
Recovery is made for phone not any particular rom.

Android File Transfer SUCKS! Is there a no root solution for Osx? I am resorting to Parallels DeskTop-W7.
