Kernel Flashing Questions
Ok, sorry for the newb questions but this is the first time i am going to do something to any smartphone so there's somethings I don't understand.
1. Will I loose all of my data on my phone? I understand with flashing a new ROM i would but flashing a different kernel is different right? Also, what's the difference between a ROM and a kernel?
1b. If I will loose my data, is there anyway to back up some of that app data without being rooted? I know that once I am rooted I can use Titanium Backup.
2. Would you recommend using Odin to flash the Charge or something else? All of the instructions in the dev section say to use Odin but I've also seen some people say that you should use Heimdall and idk what that is. If you think I should use Odin, what version should i use?
3. Which kernel are you using and which one would you recommend.
4. If something goes wrong, you guys got my back right? lol
Thank you very much
