Well I bit the bullet and let him do his work.
He doesn't even make you pay up front, he waits til after it's done.
I cleared an old laptop out and let him connect to that just in case though.
Whole thing was painless except for the fact that you have to factory reset your phone. And with no decent non-root backup method that includes data, that sucked.
do you have his info still? His account on here is deactivated and I cant find him on facebook
edit: nvm found him, plz delete
