comment Galaxy s5 Firmware what firmware?
i heard it was important not to downgrade when rooted. No, not at all, whether you're rooted or not has no impact on flashing a ROM via Recovery or ODIN.

comment No Sound on Galaxy S3 with either 4.3 or Cyanogenmod
If you can flash CM it sounds like the bootloader won't actively prevent you from installing 4.1, so you could at least try it.

comment How do I perform a full pre-rooting backup of an Android phone?
@jiggunjer Yeah, I think it will depend both on your ROM and version of Android. Some manufacturers seem a little more lax. I think the end conclusion holds regardless though :)

comment Is it possible to have two Android phones with a single phone number?
There are other ways to sync texts too, but one device would be the primary and the other would be sending/receiving through it. You can't have both phones on the network with the same number unless you duplicated the SIM card, which would just ensure neither phone worked properly.

comment I never set a passcode/word on my phone, but suddenly I'm locked out
Sounds like someone may have access to your Google account. You should immediately change your password and follow this, and then use ADM yourself to reset the phone password. You may wish to check your computer for keyloggers first as well.
