    I don't know if I am posting this in the correct area.
    I have been running ZombieStomped on my D2.
    I did a Nandroid... wanted to install the official GB update...
    Last night I SBF'd to stock FROYO. Was immediately notified of the OTA. I rooted my phone using the One Click method (so easy). All went well until I tried to restore my Nandroid. My phone then bootlooped on the Red M.... was unable to recover, and so I SBF'd again to FROYO. Installed the Leak GB and restored my Nandroid.
    So my question is; did this fail because ZombieStomped is based off of the Leaked GB? My phone works GREAT with the leaked version, so it's no big deal if I have to keep it...

    You have to SBF to Froyo, install the OTA, THEN root it using the D3 root method.

    You installed your nandroid AFTER installing the leak and rooting? Why? The point is to upgrade and stay not upgrade and restore to buckup.... if you're trying to run gb and the other rom:

    Install gb leak
    Use p3droid root program
    Install bootstrapper or use rom manager
    Then install the rom you wanted (zombiestomped?)

    And correct me if any of this is wrong...

    I guess I didn't think of it that way. I didn't think things through all the way! D'oh!
    I just didn't want to lose all my settings.... makes sense now...
