    Ok so I just rooted my D2G, and I just wanna make sure everything is safe in case of a major **** up, does titanium do the job? I know it has the back up feature and I backed up all the stock bloatware just in case, but I don't really know what I would do if my phone got really ****ed up. Any tips or basics I should know to keep my phone as safe as possible?

    Make a backup in Clockwork Recovery. That way if you do mess anything up, you can easily load the backup.

    To make a true backup you need the droid 2 bootstrap or koush's bootstrap (its the same thing just 2 different names). Any questions regarding rooting, backing up, or flashing a rom can be answered in the hacking/rom install class located in the hacks section. I would start there.

    Titanium will not allow you to restore your OS. The bootstrap backup will.
