The process I have given is for updating to the latest without losing data. For each step, you just need the update file. Dont worry about the thread.
You do not have to worry about retaining root as the latest update, NC1, is rootable with towelroot.
If you dont ming losing data (about having to reinstall apps and redo settings), then you can directly odin flash the stock NB1 firmware and then OTA update to NC1.
Stock NB1 firmware and steps are available in All Thing AT&T
yeah i dont care about having to reinstall apps/redo settings. i might just go to NB1 as you suggested, then OTA to NC1 and see if I still have root, if not, use whatever that towelroot method is.
i think the only .apks i changed were to freeze some with titanium and then renaming/replaciing an .apk to get tethering to work.
edit: there are 2 versions of NB1, does it matter which one since it will just update to NC1 anyway?
edit: what version and where do i get odin? there is a link that takes me to the ODIN thread, but there are no download links to it.
make sure to hit that "Thanks" button if I helped...
