Nice guide... very easy to follow!

I'm curious what happens if I follow this and I'm on .896. I'm already rooted, but nothing like roms, themes or mods have been installed.

Any objection with me making a video tutorial following all these steps?

Is it good to do a factory reset before doing a root? Or any other tips or suggestions before starting?

You shouldn't reset anything before you begin. This method will create a backup of your stock system using SafeStrap. You can always return to your original setup using SafeStrap. Just reverse the toggle setting for Safe system (step 21). The wipe in step 22 is all you'll need.

I'd recommend reading a little about how SafeStrap works if you're feeling uncertain. There's a link to the Safestrap website in the "Credits" section of the OP.

Loving KIN3TX. Thanks Tuck! How do you know which themes we can run on this 901 version?
