    I want to make a nandroid backup and when I click on the "Reboot Recovery" in Koush's bootstrapper, all it does is reboot my phone normally without taking me to the menu screen. I sbf'd it yesterday and rooted it today with z4root. Do I need to be holding a certain button down after I hit "reboot recovery"?

    It should boot you in there without any button holding. Did you hit bootstrap recovery first?

    I usually hit bootstrap recovery every time, just to make sure. It doesn't always go into recovery otherwise.
