    i use an app called ROM Manager.

    it flashes a new rom and backs up the old one for you with a push of a button.

    select any rom you want. wait for it to download and then flash it. once it reboots from ROM Manager it's automatic.

    ok, I think I screwed up. I have the little ninja so I know I'm rooted but, how do I know if i'm running BB? I downloaded it and then selected it flashed it and went into recovery. I wiped my phone and then installed the update and i'm back at square one

    Please tell me you made at least one backup? You should be in the habit of making backups often and naming them something descriptive so you can easily get back to states you know work.
