12 hours later, my phone works, I think

I love having to factory reset my phone.
And then, because carriers are terrible about keeping their phones updated (Exception: iPhone), I had to root and flash a new ROM.
The choices are pretty good these days, and I think I've got a much better setup than I did before I started fixing the damn thing.

Of course, I'm an idiot and forgot to officially detach my Bnet authenticator from the phone so it's only a matter of time before I can't play Diablo 3.
(that help ticket's been opened too and I don't blame Android)

Hopefully I've set this up appropriately and I won't have to handle another factory reset for a long time/ever.

You know what spurred all of this?
A NEW BARONESS ALBUM CAME OUT LAST MONTH AND NOBODY INFORMED ME

So most of last night was "why the fuck won't this album transfer?"
Followed by "fuck this shit, time to wipe the phone"
Followed by "How the fuck do I wipe my phone?"
Followed by "shit, I should have read ALL the instructions"
Followed by "How do I recover my bricked phone?"
Followed by "OK this time I'll use the AT&T upgrade tool"
Followed by "Now let's root it and install a new ROM"
Followed by "I CAN'T BELIEVE I DIDN'T READ ALL OF THE INSTRUCTIONS AGAIN"
Followed by a factory wipe, recovery and upgrade (again)
Followed by a slew of minor technical issues that all require flashing ROMs.

But I think it's stable.
Using it for the next few weeks will confirm or deny these reports.
