    Within sprecovery you can wipe cache and data. This is where you will want to do this. A factory reset will leave data on the phone. Look for directions in a thread on upgrading then follow those steps. If you get stuck then you can provide the link to the instructions and say you are stuck on step 6...or whatever. Good luck.

    It is most likely a folder problem. Make sure there are no spaces in the name of the folder you put into the nandroid folder; IE: ultimatedroid7.5 . Also by what you said it sounds like you are just putting the file you downloaded into the nandroid folder which wont work. You have to unzip the file (using winrar or winzip) to a folder you create (blackdroid7.5) and then put that folder directly into the nandroid folder, wipe data and cache and then do an advanced nandroid restore. Make sure you back-up any data you might want to save. Hope this helps and sorry if you already knew this
