Q7: Am I required to backup my ROM before flashing anything else?
No you're not, but it is definitely a good idea and always recommended because if you don't do a backup and then something goes wrong, it means that you'll lose all your apps, data etc. It just saves a lot of hassle.

Here is a link for learning how to make a Logcat[UNIVERSAL][LOGCAT]How to get & read a logcat/ Troubleshoot your own issues!

Q10: What does MD5 checksum mean??
MD5 digests have been widely used in the software world to provide some assurance that a transferred file has arrived intact. For example, file servers often provide a pre-computed MD5 (known as Md5sum) checksum for the files, so that a user can compare the checksum of the downloaded file to it. Download MD5 TOOL CHECKER


Q11: What is the best ROM/kernel/modem??
Honestly, there is no "best". It's all based on personal choice. For example; I may like heavily customizing my ROMs where as you may like it to look at basic as possible. The best thing you can do is to just test out different ROMs/kernels/modems and see which you prefer.

Q12: I have an AT&T GALAXY S5 & what are my choices for modems?

Enter recovery mode again and look for the ‘backup and restore’. Select restore and everything should go back to normal in a few minutes.If you choose the ‘Advanced Restore’ option, you can select which component of the backup to restore – like the boot, system, data or cache...Reboot to system. Your system is now restored and is exactly same as the time when the backup was made.

Anxiously waiting. If it's determined to be locked without exploit, I probably will sell/return mine.

I'm lucky enough to have an s4 with TWRP, and I'm pleased with it still.

hey everyoneeee in the android world!!
hey i am almost in the market to get another phone
i don't really care about Roms that much. but if someone
would kindly "PM" me when root becomes available, that would be nice.
i have been thinking about getting the s5 over the new htc m8.
Samsung seems to still be king!
