So this is the partition layout for the sprint variant.
/boot emmc /dev/block/mmcblk0p7
/efs ext4 /dev/block/mmcblk0p20
/recovery emmc /dev/block/mmcblk0p19
/data auto /dev/block/mmcblk0p15 length=-16384
/system ext4 /dev/block/mmcblk0p14
/cache ext4 /dev/block/mmcblk0p17
/external_sd vfat /dev/block/mmcblk1p1 /dev/block/mmcblk1
I don't know if ours is exactly the same but the part that matters is that our recovery partition is mounted in the same place. That is the only part you are modifying with this. The root should be pretty generic that shouldn't cause problems. I am currently running titanium backup to restore all my data. So its up to you if you want to try it but, It works and that includes CWM and the Root.
