    Start at step 34 and make sure you do a nandroid advanced backup (just in case). Its very simple and no you are not stuck to using sholes.

    Because you choose which file to restore through the names...So you don't need to delete them.

    Sounds like you didn't unzip the file before you placed it in your nandroid folder.

    Check your folder structure and make sure you dont have an extra BRS... folder. Should be /sdcard/nandroid/BRS/(image files here)

    There is a free version available .. but if you buy it you are donating to the developers which is always good for the future. The updater makes an auto backup and basically does everything and when it reboots in sprecovery its just option mentions where you get to pick what you want. Pretty simple if I do say so myself ... but I still like BB better.

    Thank you! That single piece of info about adding a BRS folder made it work!
