    For some reason I cannot post in the BlackDroid section? So here is my question if anyone can answer. I want to install the UD10 rom. I downloaded the file

    Ultimate Droid Themed
    udthemeud10-BDS-20100412-2232.zip (is live now)

    Here are the instructions that he gives

    Nandroid Backup Installation Instructions:
    -Wipe Data and Cache
    -Extract the files from the archive using WinRAR or a similar program
    -Place the extracted folder (the ROM) into the "nandroid" folder on your sdcard
    -Reboot into recovery mode (hold the power and "x" button at the same time)
    -Wipe data/factory reset (do this twice!)
    -Wipe cache partition (do this twice!)
    -Backup/Restore
    -Advanced Nandroid Restore
    -Choose backup (select the ROM)
    -Perform Restore
    -Enjoy!

    My question is here Place the extracted folder (the ROM) into the "nandroid" folder on your sdcard

    Well the zip file is 4 files, do I just put all 4 files into the "nandroid" folder on your sdcard. There is no folder it is 4 files.

    Thanks

    You want to download the zip file, unzip it on your computer, copy the folder you unzipped and place it into the Nandroid folder on the SD Card.

    Make a folder and name it UD v10 or whatever.

    Place those 4 files into folder you just made and place that folder into Nandroid

    you take the zip. and open it. then you take the 4 files inside and bring them into a folder you made like ROM-UDv10 or what ever. then move that folder into the nandroid folder on your SD card. then follow the rest of the instructions.

    First are you rooted? if you are all you have to do is put all unzipped files into a new folder and name it anything you want, do not put any spaces. For example I named my folder UDv10. This way when I go into Nandroid recovery I can find the file easy.

    Make sure to put the new folder into the Nandroid folder on your SDcard, if there is not a nandroid folder on your SDcard you can create one.

    you need to create a folder in your NANDROID folder. Ensure there are no spaces in the folder name. Then just copy the four files in that folder. You can now select to do a nandroid restore by selecting the folder you created above.

    Don't forget to back everything up first !

    Edit: NVM answered above. Geesh that's a lot of replies in the time it took me to type this.

    That worked perfectly, I think I had a space in the name so I renamed it UDv10.
