However I have no issues with anything that would go along with that. My other concern is that if I go to install the beta TWRP it tells me that it will erase the current setup I have for Nova launcher and I don't want it to do that so that keeps me from installing it. Should I not worry about that and just do the install? Also can I just flash the radios and the like in bootloader mode because I have a bug on my laptop that I have yet to get rid of and I try to keep from plugging any electronic device into it in the fist place. I've never had to do a radio update in the mode that you spoke of,let alone not be able to just flash it in bootloader or custom recovery mode. To be honest I got into flashing ROM's and rooting my smartphones because it's pretty easy to do. Download this, flash that, reboot and BAM you are good to go. I'm going to start shying away from doing it in the future if it starts to become more of a technical thing to do until I have the time really read up on everything I'll be needing to do. I'm not the normal tech type of person that can go throw 800 bucks down on a replacement phone when I brick one. That part still baffles me on how people can just do that. LOL Anyways, thank you for the help so far.
I honestly don't know what it is you are looking for or waiting to hear from me. Sorry.
Flashing a new recovery has nothing to do with what apps you have installed currently or their data.
Firmware has to be flashed in fastboot.
The radio I posted can be flashed in Recovery.
None of the above is difficult to do and I'm not quite sure I understand your dilemma.
Update radios and recovery, flash a new rom, or don't.
Am I missing something?
