    in shell,
    mkdir /sdcard/yourfoldernamehere

    if you want more unix commands, just search "unix commands" on google.

    Also, how long did you let your phone sit when you got to the eye? Sometimes it just takes longer.

    However...I'm not exactly sure what SPrecovery's factory reset does...If it tries to reset your phone exactly to how it is out of the box, minus flashing the stock recovery and losing root, that's probably your problem.

    (There's a good lesson here for others...You should ALWAYS create a nandroid backup of you setup before trying to theme. Then it's just a matter of restoring if things don't go according to plan)

    I'd still like to know if you have previously installed any other nandroid backups or installed a rom using nandroid, as that would mean that the folder already exists.

    I think that rootyourdroid.info has some commands that can tell you how to create a new directory, but their bandwidth had been exceeded when I tried to get on there to find it, and googling "adb command create directory" didn't turn up what we're looking for...
    I let it sit for quite a while, blank screen with the charging light on. I have not done a single nandroid-related thing before, plus I wiped my sdcard. Don't know why I did that, but I figured I might as well wipe everything while I'm at it.

    So now I'm going to try this....

    Okay, it seems to have created the directory. I pushed the folder of the nandroid backup to sdcard/nandroid and the restore failed. Here's what it said:

    Mounted /sdcard
    This should do a default nandroid restore
    Attempting default nandroid restore

    ERROR: Nandroid exited with status 20
    E:Can't mount /dev/block/mmcblk0p1 (or /dev/block/mmcblk0)
    (No such file or directory)
    E:Can't mount SDCARD:/nandroid

    Is there something I forgot to do?

    So.... I tried to do mkdir /sdcard/nandroid but Nandroid exited with error 20 when I tried to restore. Any idea what that means?

    Okay, so the directory exists! It says /sdcard/nandroid "is a directory" and yet I CAN'T GET IT TO RESTORE WHEN I USE ADB PUSH!

    Pulling my hair out here! Thoughts? It says 4 files pushed but then that error code 20 appears when I try to restore. What am I doing wrong???
