    If you are using SPRecovery you need to press the return key. It is located directly below the delete key. When you press return you will be able to continue

    Yes. You can verify by going to the backup/restore, select restore, select Advanced Nandroid backup, select backup. The backup you just made should be there. If it is not there do NOT continue!

    You do not need to reboot. Stay in SPRecovery. Look at the prompts. Highlight the backup/restore press camera button, highlight Advance Nandroid restore, press camera button, highlight select backup, press camera button. You should see the backup you just made.

    Great. Keep going! The rest is fairly straight forward. If you have questions post and we'll get you through.
