    Nandroid back up question

    Hi all.

    I've been following the 2.1 guide (very well written, thank you!) and I've got to the step where I do the Default Nandroid Backup. It's been backing up...for an hour now.

    My battery was around 40-50% when I started this. Could be a problem or no? Should I pull the battery or would that just completely send my phone into a downward spiral? Just didn't think it would take this long - although I do have 101 apps. I mean 5 minutes at most but this is crazy.

    Any other thoughts?

    Yeah, sorry. This is the first backup of my original image...I really want to pull the battery and just charge it up and wait until later tonight to give it a go again but I want to be sure I'm not over reacting first haha

    You should be fine. Like I said mine only took like 4 min.. I had a buddy that his did the same thing, he just re-did it and it worked fine the 2nd time. So I'd say you would be fine

    So battery pull shouldn't affect what I have on there as of now? I think I will if you don't think it will. Thanks a ton!

    It shouldn't, cause when you go to do it again, it will just re write over long as your not loading the new flash image you should be fine.

    Pulled and put back in. Rebooted fine Time to wait patiently and retry. I had the phone plugged into the computer when I started the backup and then unplugged and blah blah blah...this time I'll leave it unplugged when it doesn't need to be. Thanks again.

    Anyone else had any problems with an original Nandroid backup? Second attempt and I'm at ~10 minutes of waiting.
