    As the tile says, CockworkMod has been found for the Droid 3 finally and should be up for use by everyone soon. This allows us to flash roms, do full backups, etc.

    So good day for us Droid 3 users! Hopefully, this will lead to more Dev support.

    saw this on DL a bit ago. i put both my fists in the air and went "YES!"

    then i felt embarrassed

    then i realized there's no one around me so it was okay to celebrate!

    Woo-hoo.
    I have been holding off on rooting. I've been just waiting for the security of a nandroid backup...
    Hopefully now we'll get to play.

    Doubt it since it just now came to be available pretty much. But I'm sure we'll get plenty of stuff soon!

    When you do the backup should it say sd-ext not found

    You don't need to backup sd-ext since wipes don't affect your sd card.

    Sd-ext isn't available as the usb-storage mounting also doesn't work yet. You can only use it in the backup function.

    Noob question: once im in CWM and I choose backup/restore, does this just backup my phone or does it restore everything aswell? All I want to do is backup my phone but im a little nervous about just diving in head first

    Nah it gives you a sub menu of backup, restore etc from there, it will not do a backup and restore together.

    Not stupid at all. Use the built in files app (or another filemanager like astro). You need to load the file (.apk) on a microsd card and put that in the phone. Make sure option in phone to allow non trusted installations is checked. Edit: AND turn usb debugging on. Then browse to it using the aforementioned app(s) and select it to install. Once the app is installed, open it. Install recovery, check the checkbox to have it available or whatever the wording is...

    Then you can turn off your phone, then hold m down and press power button to get boot menu... ...there is a video above of all the rest...

    Obviously you must have root. ;)
