When sholes rom 1.0.1 (the original rom in the original post) was still available, many found this process to be exact.
Good luck with everything!! :)
Thanks for the shout cplus. I gave you credit as well, I wasn't about to take credit when 75% of the thread that I made came from your thread here with just a little modification (just to try to make it even MORE noob friendly).
All of the links to download the files needed to do the backup are dead. Can someone please post some mirrors? Thanks!
Yo just download rsdlite, sprecovery-sbf file and your are good to go. Flash the sbf to your phone using rsdlite. Your phone will need to be in the right mode: turn off phone, then with phone off, hold up on the dpad and power the phone on. you will get a black screen with white lettering in bootloader mode. now open rsdlite and flash away. here should be everything you need: http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dro...s-version.html
Good luck! It's easy. Once you have sprecovery, make a backup and then feel free to flash any ROM you want.
