I think I can grab the data piece by piece just by using Kies.
I am very curious in how to use the ADB method but I will save that for the next time. Not sure if I'm quite ready for that.
I have a question for the the modem file.
To get the data, wi-fi, and GPS working, I can flash the T999_4.3_UVUEMJC_Modem using the Install Zip from CWM recovery?
The kernel is not needed since it's already included in the ROM?
