Can you Odin BTS? (Back to Stock) and reroot that way? I just recently went back n had root and installed TW within 45 for the whole process. i do recommend the MDK full wipe one as you have to go into stock recovery and factory data reset anyway.

There is no "best" you'll have to try em out and see which one you prefer.

I'd suggest Hyperdrive or maybe check out of the ROMs Gogolie has ported over.

I'm not really a TW guy myself but have flashed quite afew of them just to see.

/http://downloadandroidfiles.org/down...k_restore-zip/. also there is a no wipe .tar file around, but i found you still have to go into stock recovery and hit factory data reset which ends up deleting your info that the full wipe does.
