Ok first off. I know there are forums dedicated to this, I just am too stupid to understand them. Everytime I read a thread I have to google half the words in the post to figure out what they are talking about, i.e SBF, locked bootloader, Flash ROM and so on. So I'm hoping someone can just post an easy response to this question here, and then this thread can be locked and we can all go on with our lives. That being said ... I followed a guide to clean up the bloatware on my Droid X. It worked wonderfully. Except now I can't get phone updates. I did a lot of research and I THINK I'll need to restore my phone to start getting updates. I have all the tools I need to do this but the terminology is getting to me and I can't get a straight answer as to what to expect. If I (hope I'm saying this right) flash the rom to a previous stock version... That is like a reformat of a hdd right? I'll lose everything. Or is it like a reinstall of the OS and all my apps, music and contacts will be there? Like I said, dumb question, but reading those forums confuses me to no end. I just need to know before I start since I'll have to remove my Battle.net authenticator from my WoW account and hopefully find a way to backup my Angry Birds progress. That's really all I need saved!
