    Anyone have a link to step by step instructions on doing a nandroid backup? Also how do I know which sbf I need to download? I'm a noob so please bear with me. Trying to get everything I need to install 928bgx theme.

    Nice. Thanks. I thought I had to make a backup file on my computer before I installed the 928bgx? The bootstrap is the only backup I need in case I really screw up my phone installing a custom theme?

    Just make sure to keep Your backup on the root of your card so you can find it if necessary.

    I just typed in bootstrap and it took me right there. Use search and make sure it's the one for your phone, DX or D2.

    Thanks chkmate! I ran the program trying to get the nandroid folder on my phone but it didnt work. I have a folder called clockworkmod that was created with another backup folder inside that contains my backup. Did i do something wrong. Needless to say when i run RomManager to load up the SmokedGlass ROM it doesn't see it.

    Alternatively there's a link in my signature. You may want to check it out as I go into more detail about the other options in the clockworkmod recovery. For example, don't format /system from mounts and storage or you'll brick your dx

    Ok I think my problem is that I'm not putting my backup on the root. What exactly do you mean by this term?

    backup on the root? I never said that, but usually "root" refers to the root of the sdcard. root means top layer. so "/sdcard" as opposed to "/sdcard/backups"

    Thanks maderschramm.. I just read your Backup tuitorial just to get the hang of it a little better and it was very helpful. Chkmate was mentioning make sure the backup is placed on the root a few lines earlier. I loaded up black glass on my phone but no program can see that its there. So I was thinking that may be why. I'm trying to get to the level of loading up a custom rom now that i think i have the backing up part down pretty good. Any suggestions of a good Rom?

    Apex is pretty user friendly and keeps a lot of the social blur so there are fewer problems such as facebook photos/contacts not syncing etc. Rubix is a pure speed machine but isn't quite as user-friendly. I'd start with Apex. I used it for awhile. It's pretty simple to install the rom if you follow the instructions; however, if you feel like waiting (an undetermined amount of time) I'm going to write a comprehensive ROM install tutorial.

    I'd just dive in, don't hold your breath on me ;)

    don't unzip the rom file, you install the .zip from the clockworkmod recovery with the bootstrapper

    DON'T DOWNLOAD OTA'S IF YOU'RE ROM'D UNLESS YOU WANT A BRICK

    sorry, it's important that you know this.

    unless of course the rom dev supports it which I think <1% do :p

    So would you recommend I reload my backup that I made prior to loading the Rom and then load up the new version of Dark Slide V4?? Is it worth it?
