I used method 2 but I don't know if I used the link provided or a Canadian twrp to back up my phone should I use the twrp backup or a third party backup. Will anything overwrite if I flash Twrp even though I have twrp installed, also should I flash the .tar or .img

Should I change the build.prop before I install the new twrp?

I'm not an expert so anything you do is at your own risk! But to the best of my knowledge, you should be fine doing a TWRP backup (it is called a Nandroid backup - a complete system image, basically, which is what most 3rd party apps do through the recovery anyway). Nothing will overwrite other than the recovery, of course. Flash the TAR. Find specific instructions on the forum to make sure you do it right.

By flashing the tar delete my nandroid because I need Something to go back to if something goes wrong

Read what I said above. Look, if you are going down this road please don't be so worried. Noting is going to be 100% for certain. It will most likely be fine, but just take precautions. Make a backup to an SD card. Copy it to your computer. There - if it somehow gets wiped, you have a backup on your computer. Worst case scenario - you buy a new phone. Pain in the ass, sure, but not the end of the world.

It looks from the thread that you have been pondering this for months. You need to just do some reading on whatever you're unsure about and go for it. If you're still uncomfortable trying it, then stay where you are.

I did it. It's all good now thanks! By the way I was reading about roms and custom recoveries and I saw that I need an unlocked bootloader so because I have a custom recovery am I unlocked?
