    Easy root/ ROM Manager Question (kinda noob)

    hey guys i am new at this whole rooting thing ive got the idea down and stuff and the basic things just a few questions

    im thinking about rooting threw easy root, then using rom manager to install roms, how and when can i make a nandroid backup of my rooted 2.2 rom??

    can i do it after i root with easy root if so how?, or is it done when i click on make back up on rom manager ??

    and as far as roms go do they install just like an update.zip folder?? wipe data& cache and then install update.zip and then thats it right ?? am i missing anything ?

    just dont wanna mess up my phone and i just want a cool rom

    OK, first I'll have to say that I have seen a lot of posts on here where people used easy root with rom manager and had some difficulties. I recommend following this guide, yeah it's not just the push of a button but IMO it's the better route.

    after you root, you will have to install busybox and flash a custom recovery image. The recovery image can be flashed through rom manager, you can choose to flash the clockwork or scroll to the bottom and use sprecovery (i use clockwork. they are both good though). After you get the custom recovery you can make a backup. then you can flash a custom rom. ALWAYS WIPE before flashing a new rom by wipe i mean clear data/cache. I wipe 3 times before installing a new rom just to make sure it will run properly

    Revocery image is just the program that the phone uses when it boots up into recovery mode right ?

    I am more of a "Need to see it" kinda guy, so I like the videos on the link I sent you. Watch them 2-3 times before you attempt it. Then follow up with this video and you'll be golden!

    Those are both great links, that's how I rooted and I'm sure many of us too. Listen to YankInDaSouth and watch those videos over and over until its clear for you and you should be good.

    +1 on the video

    This is how I went about rooting my phone. Takes a little bit more time, but it is still pretty easy to follow.

    Does this smell like chloroform to you?

    Wait a second, if you're running that build aren't you rooted already?
