    +1 for bootstrapper! Let us know when you have it. Its in the market ($2 I think) or you can get it directly from Koush for free. I can post the link if needed.

    Open bootstrapper and select "bootstrap recovery", it'll just say successful. Then select "reboot recovery" which should reboot into clockworkmod.

    pulled the battery, and the phone successfully loaded to my home screen. Everything seems okay. But did I successfully back everything up? If so, where can I find that file so I can put it on my PC?

    no.

    that sounds like regular android recovery to me. are you sure your phone is rooted properly? when you clicked on 'bootstrap recovery' did it ask for superuser permissions? I know it's for the dx (I was sent over here by someone else) but check out my backup/restore tutorial - it should be roughly the same as the dx process

    Open DX/D2 Bootstrapper
    Bootstrap Recovery
    Reboot Recovery
    Once in CWM go to BackUps and Restore
    Backup

    Let it run till it says Backup Complete.

    Hit back button or Power for main menu.

    Reboot System. And there you go, you have a backup of your phones current state.

    Navagation goes with volume up and down buttons, choose your selection with the camera button. Or the physical keyboard.

    Yeah my phone is rooted properly, yeah it asked for superuser permissions.

    When I hit Reboot Recovery in Bootstrapper the phone turns off and goes to the screen with the android and triangle with exclamation point - none of the buttons on the phone are responsive at this point - which is why I had to pull the battery last time
