For the record I'm not really looking to install custom roms or unlock the bootloader specifically. I just want root access so I can change the slimport resolution to my HDTV.
All the guides I've read to achieve root talk about unlocking the bootloader and installing roms.
I just want root access, I don't need anything else.
So, is there a guide somewhere that shows me how to get root without wiping all data. If not, is there someway I can backup my data before I wipe?
Any backup tool I've seen require root... "catch 22"
The only thing I really want to preserve is my recorded raps in the "autorap" app. Any guides I've seen to backup that data, require root!
Any help is greatly appreciated.
