Ok, so I am not new to ROOTing and ROMing. I came from the Galaxy S3 which I always changing things up on it. Now, this G2 (LS980), is a whole new ballpark for me.

1: No removable battery (that's ok)
2: No external memory... (How can you download a ROM and then Wipe everything before install, and still have the download???)

I would really like to try the d3rpG2 ROM but I am a tid bit nervous to do anything on this device. Compared to what I am use to.

I have seen a few post of people losing everything in a wipe (lost downloaded rom), how do you avoid that without having external memory?

I have seen all the post on how to get ROOT and Recovery but to me its kind of confusing (for this phone that is).

So like, is there a nice step by step guide....? or something? I know that's asking for a lot, but this phone style is way new to me and I am trying to learn as much as I can on it.

Many thanks to any helpful replies!!

for recovery

or you can use either Flashify or Freegee app to get custom recovery

as for wipe procedure, as long as you dont wipe internal storage, u'll be safe

happy rooting and flashing mate


ps: dont forget to do a nandroid backup once u root it.. saved me a couple of times already
