    Well was doing something so simple as switching boot animations and after rebooted somehow my reciever got shut down. No 3g, no 1x, nada. Luckily had my nandroid backup and all is well.

    So for all the noobs out there this is a good example of why you need nandroid. Even when doing something simple you never know what might happen. Nandroid and sprecovery will save your a**!!

    Hey....did you know that applying custom bootanimations isn't even considered *technically* a hack? You don't even need to be rooted to change your bootanimation...

    Yeah I know.....but still caused a problem that only could be fixed with a nandroid backup. Which I thought was weird. But hey stuff happens right.
