    You need to install SPRecovery, it is a custom recovery screen instead of the screen with the triangle and the ! sign.

    This is what allows you to create nandroid backups same nandroid restores...you HAVE to have this to mess around with custom ROMs

    Run SM Updater. Its an app at the market that will do everything for you. If you are too strapped for cash to donate to the awesome sholes.info dev team you can download the updater free from their website (Sholes).

    Until people that have absolutely no business modding their phones because they can't type out commands in the TE and have no clue about the ramifications of all this...jack up their phone...

    Just my opinion though.

    I've not rooted my Droid so the suggestions above would not apply. I think, however, having a backup makes good sense. I use a Mac so I thought an easy way would be to mount and drag everything from my Droid to my Mac.

    Thoughts?

    This is exactly what I am talking about with regards to SM Updater making it too easy for people to root their phones.

    @yankees - read up on it and educate yourself on EXACTLY what you're doing. Don't continue if you haven't the foggiest clue what to do...
