    Hi,

    I have a rooted Droid and I'm trying to make a Nandroid backup before installing Cyanogen mod.

    When I reboot the phone into recovery, there is no backup option. When I boot holding down the x key, the "Android system recovery <3e>" menu (blue text) lists...

    reboot system now
    apply sdcard:update.zip
    wipe data/factory reset
    wipe cache partition
    wipe broadband data

    How do I get the backup option cited in many threads to show up?

    Thanks,
    Vaughn

    Did you root using superoneclick?

    You need to install a custom recovery. Either install Rom Manager from the market and install clockworkmod recovery or sprecovery in the alternate recovery area in RM.

    Sent from my GimpDroid.

    Thanks for responding.

    Yes. I then installed ROM Manager and have flashed Clockwork Mod (got the message that I had successfully flashed clockwork mod).

    Guidot,

    Flashing sprecovery fixed it. Thanks! I'll resume trying to install cyanogenmod now.
