    Really simple actually:

    Latest recovery required (0.14.3 as of this writing)
    Go to backup/restore > Advanced Nandroid backup > Enable ALL partitions > Preform backup

    Done. Save it!

    How can you enable all partitions? You cant backup the SDcard because you will run out of room... no?

    Im new to this, and not really sure how to even install nandroid.

    Well, to get nandroid backups you have to install sirpsychos's recovery, instructions to do so are here: Software:Images - Droid-Devs
    You need the newest version though, 0.14.3, get it at Sholes
    Instead of typing 0.14.1 from those instructions, use 0.14.3

    And your sdcard won't be touched at all.

    Wouldnt it be best to have a backup of an unrooted BASE os? Is this a restore to how you have your phone NOW or a restore to factory?

    It will restore to however your phone was setup when you backed it up using nandroid.

    Would it be possible to share that? Is it 2.0.1?

    Me third. I would really like to have a way to get back to stock. How would I do that at this point? I am rooted. I have 0.14.3, and wifi tether but it has caused me headaches in performance. I want my droid back.

    Hmm, an unrooted 2.0.1 with the default recovery menu would be a good backup to have, in case anything were to happen to the phone where you could only access recovery but you couldn't fix what the problem was. I'd like to make one, but I don't know where I could get the original recovery menu, nor do I know how I could make a nandroid backup of it if when I have it on my phone I can't do nandroid backups..... I'll have to look into this later tonight.

    Would be nice. To have the option to revert back to stock 2.0.1 would be great. I love the idea of rooting and everything but it doesn't seem to be stable yet.

    That's the problem. To install SirPsychoS' recovery, we have to root, and flash stuff. By then it's no longer a stock firmware. =[.

    The same way you put the older version on. Put the new version on the sd card, follow the rest of the directions from before, but substitute the new recovery image filename.

    You won't need to create xbin or do some of the other steps that were needed the first time, but its the same basic process.

    That's very close to stock -- just need to delete a few files -- and you have stock.
    Anyway you can post the nandroid image of this for reference purposes?

    he says to place the flash_image system/bin but i dont have access to those locations...

    these are the instructions:

    1. Download the following two files:
      1. flash_image.zip md5sum 4e95c0c4b1d2e55e3bba75aafc525399
      2. recovery-0.14.3.img md5sum c48bd0ec4e697c59baea7a664c787113
    2. Unzip flash_image.zip
    3. Copy the unzipped flash_image and recovery-0.14.3.img onto your Droid from above onto your sd card.
    4. Place the flash_image somewhere it can be executed like /system/bin as it can NOT be executed from /sdcard
    5. Run the following on your Droid flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery-0.14.3.imgin step 5 can i assume im supposed to run this via ADB? also what mode should it be in? ADB shell? or SU? sorry im pretty new to using adb and command line in general so its a little frustrating for me cause i dont know when or what to assume.
    he also says you can use busybox and gives a line for that (i believe i have it installed because i went through the steps to do it in another guide, is there a way i can check for sure?)

    Well, if as root, if you type busybox --version at the command line, do you get anything coming back at you?
