The thing which is better is the fact that these people have made this very easy and so it is completely fool-proof. Now, it is not necessary for messing with ADB or making the funky partitions or even making or changing manually the system files or folders. Yet, it helps to keep your factory ROM settings and it does not make anything over-write.
