Driuzu, The Clumsy Noob - June 9, 2015

Sir, what if I accidentally deleted an app (contacts storage, it takes memory) and I need to reset it, will every steps I do here become useless? or will it stay as it is? I planned to use ODIN (or should I flash stock xperia C ROM?)

becauseIi deleted that dimwit, I can’t dial to see boot version (I’ve seen it before deleting that apk), so after changing the boot version, i didn’t double check, and decided to proceed. After the back up started , I saw the comment section full of people saying theirs bricked and having a cold sweat… but no problem, the bootversion updated like heaven (i just found that there is “device info” to see the boot version in mobileuncle tools, yea…) and I’ve done until the CMW (my sd card was full last night, and it failed. done it the second time^^)
