    I am having a problem with creating a nandroid backup. When I choose to create either a simple or advanced backup, it either says attempting...and does nothing forever, or it says exited with error 32. I've searched and cannot find an explanation for error 32. Can anyone help me?

    If you apply a rom or theme - backup first!
    If you don't know how to backup...Stop until you do.
    hint: I name my backups like this: sg6.0_20100428 or ss4.2_20100626 to easily find them later. rom and date.

    No you don't. In my exercise in Post #20 I had to twice. Timestamps show how long it took.

    If you don't know if you are running 32 bit windows or 64 bit windows and try to install the wrong drivers it politely tells you to use the other drivers and won't install the wrong ones.

    Have you ever made one before and now it is not working or your first attempt at creating one is not working?

    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/tec...ror-codes.html but...error 32 is not in the list.

    <warning...approaching rant>
    This bugs me. Somebody creating the error code. Did they use a random number generator for certain events and call them errors? Why are some of these code's meaning a secret that nobody can figure out? </ rant>

    Try this...when you create an advanced nandroid backup you get to choose its name. Pick something simple, like 20100427 for today's date and let us know how you make out.

    I tried these instructions, for the Turn my phone into stock. During the process RSD Lite said "FAIL" in the "Progress" section. Now my phone is officially just not doing anything. When I try to boot it says ready for programming, connect USB cable. I am going to try it again right now.... help please?!?!

    Followed the steps and it worked perfectly for me. Thanks for the great write-up! Quick question in regards to rooting - according to the steps listed, we are to "wipe data/factory reset" before we install the "update.zip". Simple logic would suggest that this step will in fact erase everything off of the phone before an updated, rooted 2.1 is installed. Is this correct? Is there no other way to root without wiping everything? I really don't want to have to reinstall the 60+ apps I have on my Driod, let alone all the settings, etc...

    Hi zevoman,
    The person who created the update.zip file, Pete, who also created the Bugless Beast series of roms provided those directions.

    If the flashing of update.zip wipes everything anyways then your apps still are not saved by skipping the "wipe data/factory reset" step.

    Usually it is a good idea to do that wipe of cache and data when switching roms. However, due to having just made a nandroid backup you can skip that step and see what happens. If it turns out not so good you just do a nandroid recovery of what you just backed up and perform the wipe the next time.

    Astro, free in the market, will take just about all of your install APK files and back them up to your sdcard. You can then reinstall them later. While settings within each app might be gone you won't have to write down all the apps you have, go to the market to download them again, and then reinstall them one by one. Astro will let you install them from the sdcard.

    Once rooted, an app like Titanium Backup will let you back up all your settings, apps, etc and restore as you move from rom to rom even though you do a complete wipe inbetween.

    When moving from rom 1.1 to same-rom 1.2 you don't have to do that complete wipe and all your settings will be intact.
