    I recently rooted for the first time (thanks to this forum). I think I initially used SPR but now I have CWR (not quite sure how). I also have ROM manager.

    I am currently running BB 1.1 on my Droid and IT ROCKS! I ran the quadrant BM and got a score of 560 or so. I have the 7 slot 1ghz LV kernel installed.

    I am interested in trying out a 1.2 Ghz kernel to see if that speeds it up, as well as trying out a few different ROMS

    OK my questions.

    1). I know I need to backup before I do either of these things, so how should I go about this? Do I do the backup thru ROM manager? And/or do I need to do it thru CWR as well? (I hope that makes sense).

    2). I bought the full Titanium Backup and did a batch backup of all data and apps. I understand that when I flash a new ROM I simply DL the Titanium program and it will restore all of my hard work, settings, ringtones etc. Yes?

    3). If you do this a lot I can see there would be many backups taking up large amounts of space on your SD card. Do you go in and delete them periodically or just leave them?

    Thanks for all your help.

    Allright, I'll respond to my own post.

    Today I got brave and tried to install the JRUMMY KANGARADE FROYO 2.2 ROM.

    It did not go well. It seemed to DL fine but then got hung up during the loading process (red eye time) I'm not sure what I did wrong.

    Fortunately, I made a back-up (using ROM Manager) and was able to restore my entire OS incl. settings and apps. Too cool.

    Any thoughts on what I could do differently next time? I really want to try it, I hear it is really good.

    btw, I did click the wipe data/cache option prior to DL the new ROM.

    Thanks again.

    Not sure what may have been the cause. Two possibilities

    Battery not sufficiently charged
    The download file was corrupt

    Try downloading a different rom. Hopefully, it will install correctly.
