comment How can I monitor and log data connection mode and rate, and log with location?
I have been using Network Speed for quite a while. It only indicates data throughput. As I mentioned in the original post, I'm looking for a way to log the type of connection (GPRS, HSPA, LTE, etc) and the specific modulation (theoretical data rate) that the network is supporting/providing at a given geolocation. So far I have found nothing that does this.

comment Is there any way to root JB without losing all data and settings?
Flow - I checked the Unrevoked site, and it appears that it supports exactly 6 phones (Mostly HTC). The Nexus S is not one of them. Am I missing something?

comment Is there any way to root JB without losing all data and settings?
Izzy, can you confirm that the ADB backup will work to root the phone? If I do the backup of "everything", root the phone, and then restore "everything, wouldn't it be restored to the non-rooted state it was in when I made the backup? If the ADB backup does not back up "everything", exactly what is not backed up?

comment Full Backup of non-rooted devices
Has anyone verified that this type of backup will work for rooting? Specifically, if I back up, root the phone (which wipes it), and then restore the backup, will the phone still be rooted? Or will it revert to the state it was in when I created the backup?

comment Full Backup of non-rooted devices
I tried this (should say I'm in the process of trying it). Be aware that the backup is quite slow. It seems to run at about 1Mbyte per second, so plan a few hours tethered for a phone with a lot of data. Also, be aware that the ADB command has a timeout. If you issue the command, you have about 20 seconds to enter the password and hit "back up my data". Otherwise ADB drops back to the command line.
