So guys I am recently new to the droid, but I am not new to the modding and tweaking of phones.
What I am looking for is the answer to a couple questions that are puzzling me. I have searched a few forums without much luck. However this forum has been the most helpful I must say.
So I am coming from a blackberry in which I used to run expirimental hybrid os's as well as using different files from different os's to improve my bb....or at times brick it.
So the loading of os's well roms on the droid is different by far. You can do it all from the phone with proper knowledge in which I like very much.
I have successfully rooted my phone via a tutorial over at droid life. I didn't use the oneclick method at all because the most secure way was with adb tools. So I like it and learned about superuser access as well as how to communicate with the system of the phone via the computer.
I have also learned a lot about nandroid backups and their importance after bricking the droid after installing cyanogenmod 7.0:3. The bricking didn't come from installing the rom/ I got that done seemlessly. The problem came from when I thought I could use my nandroid backup to restore my data back on top of the new rom. So after waiting on the phone to restore I got the motorola icon stuck. I finally was able to figure out how to get back to recovery mode using x + power button. So I re-flashed the cyanogenm/od and got my phone back up. Had no data or anything then flashed google apps to the phone to allow me to use the droid. I then tried going into advance restore via nandroid. I tried to restore only data...when it completed I rebooted only to find no data. So then I just left the phone alone until I had more time to research the issue as I had the weekend with my kids.....so yesterday I decided to go into nandroid and just reload an older backup I had and just went back to the old froyo rom. I don't like it at all after using cyanogen. So I have concluded that the backup I was trying to restore from before was obviously corrupt which was causedby insufficient memory on the sd card resulting in a bricked droid. So my question is "is there a way to backup your data....flash a new rom and restore the data I.e. call logs, texts, passdroid passwords etc." Can this be done using nandroid advanced restore? Or is their an app that will do this? Any help would be greatly appreciated. The more I can learn, the more I can be a contributor to the forum myself. Sorry for any typing or grammar mistakes, on a long drive to NC.
