and DLing straight to the phone works just fine
Downloading the necessary files right now to get the rooting done and then looking to flash the CM10 rom.
Right before the rom flashing steps, where youre clearing cache, restore, dalvik etc, while making my first nandroid backup is it okay to exit/reboot from here so i can use an app to verify that the nandroid backup is good, and then go back into custom recovery to go through with the complete flashing steps?
