I have a completely stock VZW HTC One Max that has received the Kit Kat OTA.
From looking here in the forums, if I want to run a custom rom, I will need to do the following:
1 Gain root with weaksauce
2 Gain S-Off: with firewater (http://firewater-soff.com/)
3 uninstall weaksauce
4 Use TWRP 220.127.116.11 to
a. Do a backup, Just in case....
b. Flash the custom recovery
I am also a bit concerned about all my phone related stuff (Contacts, etc), are there any special steps I need to ensure I can easily get them back once I finish up the rom, install? I have them all as Google/Gmail contacts right now.
Am I missing anything?? Is there any info I need to post here that will help you recommend the correct steps to achieve my goal?
