    Nandroid exited with status 21

    I'm trying to follow these instructions: YouTube - motodroidlife's Channel

    When I get to the part where I click "Perform restore" it gives me the error "Nandroid exited with status 21"

    Errr... what do I do now?

    look at sig for error codes.

    EDIT: mount sdcard and mass storage, connect to computer and take the space out of the folder name.
    If you like what I do, thanks

    maybe you can help me out...

    i've been trying to get bb .8 on my phone (i have 1.1, but it's pretty buggy for me. buncha FC on bootup and what not..)

    i keep getting a 28 error... corrupted data.. i've tried downloading it numerous times, but always the same error.

    any ideas? i've tried renaming the folder, making sure there are no spaces... one thing that i'm wondering is (NOOB ALERT) is, do i have to also throw the update.zip file into the nandroid folder? that's the only thing i haven't tried. let me know, and thanks for your intelligence

    Check out this thread:

    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dro...-try-root.html

    Contained within that thread is a link to this thread:

    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/tec...ror-codes.html

    Nandroid error codes with known issue

    14 - Seems to happen when applying a .rom.tgz format. There is too many extensions at the end (I.e. .rom.tgz.tgz, needs to be .rom.tgz) Also could be caused by exracting a .rom.tgz . These files need to be left as a .rom.tgz file.

    21 - The file name of the folder has a space in it. ( I.e. nandroid/sample rom, needs to be nandroid/samplerom)

    25 - The rom is in too many subfolders. ( I.e. nandroid/samplerom/samplerom, it needs to be nandroid/samplerom

    28 - The rom is corrupt somehow, simple redownload or pick another mirror site.

    34 - This is when doing a backup and there isn't enough space on the sdcard. Delete some files to make room and start again.

    35 - The name for the backup is too many characters. Simply rename.

    How big is the file? Make sure it's like 100+MB for the Nandroid. I forget what size it is because his v9 only has update.zip so I don't have access to the old Nandroid. I would guess it's close to 130mb. Are you trying to download via your phone? If so, do it from your computer, a lot of times it won't download the file correctly to the phone for a file that big.

    oh wow, .9 looks awesome!

    well, i only see the update.zip option... previously he had a seperate "nandroid download link" and an "update.zip" download link.... am i completely missing something?

    i'll try downloading the update.zip, extracting it, placing it onto my phone (via computer, not through phone) and see if that works out...

    and thank you thank you THANK YOU matthew... you are quite a swiss army knife when it comes to this kinda stuff... i cant even imagine the amount of people you have helped on this forum

    No don't extract the update.zip, it won't work.

    Basically what you need to do (until he uploads a nandroid install) is follow my guide, install v.8, then the second to last step you can use the update.zip. All the links are current in my guide.
