    Before my phone crashed and everything was working great, I did a Nandroid backup. I tried to install a rom and screwed up and now I've had to revert back to stock 2.2 non-root. After I root my phone can I restore the Nandroid backup I save previously? It would save me a lot of work.

    restore nandroid backup

    I was hoping this would be easy but alas...I downloaded and installed the Droid X Bootstrapper but when I try to execute the Bootstrap Recovery I get the following error.

    Failure
    Error running exec()
    Command:[su, -c,./data/data/com.koushikdutta.droidx.bootstrap/files/surunner.sh]Working Directory:null Environment:null

    Any ideas?

    just to keep it on the threads so other people can see

    that error is common on DXs.

    its not finding the proper file. is it on the root? named update.zip and not update.zip.zip?


    try rerooting and installing bootstrap/clockwork to restore a backup u made



    if you have any more questions, feel free to post in on here.

    I can't find an update.zip anywhere on the sd card. I searched the entire card and there isn't a file called update.zip. I searched for all .zip files along with update.zip, update.zip.zip.

    I don't think I can proceed without that. I can't try to root again without it, correct?

    it NEEDS to be on the root of the sdcard. just download it again and put it on there.

    Thank you

    Once I download the update.zip file and put it in the root directory and rooted the phone, I was able to restore my phone to where it was before the crash. Thank God for backups!

    I found this one-click root and it worked great once I copied the update.zip file to the root directory. http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dr...ting-solution-droid-thread-latest-v1-8ra.html

    I really appreciate your help and the time you've taken to help me. If you are ever around my neck of the woods, lunch is on me. :)

    I have a question regarding nandroid restores and the X relating to the bootloader.

    Since the X bootloader is locked, when I do a nandroid restore, is it ok to do a full restore, which will restore the bootloader and all, as long as it is OTA 2.2 to OTA 2.2 with a theme? I have been playing it safe and doing an advanced restore and only restoring the system files and not doing a full restore which would restore the bootloader file(s).
