    Is this possible to do? I would like to make a backup of my 2.0.1 rom that has not been rooted or altered.

    There's no reason to... If you haven't rooted an made changes than there's nothing that a factory reset won't fix. Now you should backup your personal data (contacts, settings ect) this can be done via the system backup (under settings) or with programs like Astro File Manager or with other products like WaveSecure (which you should have on your phone anyway).

    Now once you root you could (and perhaps should) make a backup but again, there's no reason to. The stock 2.0.1 is easy enough to find to it's not necessary except to satisfy any OCD tendencies:icon_ devil:

    yea but once you root and back up, then you've made a back up of a rooted rom, right? i was thinking of wasting some time with rooting but all the "virgin" roms i see still have root access.

    call me crazy, particular, etc but i would like to have an image of my own ROM, minus root. just curious if it was possible without rooting the phone first. i know it's splitting hairs but like you said, OCD :p

    i guess that will have to do. i'd prefer to use the rom that was on my phone but that will be good enough if i do root it and decide to switch back.
