    First, have your rooted your phone? If not you need to do so before you can install any new rom

    Sorry-- I just read the last sentence I though it was your signature

    What process did you use to root? Did you create a Nandroid file?

    Thank you
    Okay, I used the same rooting tutorial that she did. The Root Droid 1 - Regardless of OS Version. But I don't really know what to do after that. I know I need to install a backup but I don't know if I need to creat a nandroid or the recovery within the Rom Manager. Or if I need to re-create one every time I make changes. Basically anything past rooting I'm stuck at and I've been reading and looking up numerous methods and information but I'm still a little lost
