    Do you have to reactivate you phone everytime you load a ROM?

    Make sure your phone is at the bootloader, open RSDlite, if no model shown go to config: deviceID options, check first-come-first-serve DeviceID mode and see if that helps. Also will show the chip ID it wont say Moto Droid or anything like that.

    My phone shows up in the list and I selected the sbf file I want, but it does not show the file properties or allow me to press start. Please help!!!

    I did manage to get it to work by renaming the file 1.sbf. Not sure why this worked, but it did.

    sooo I've followed all of the directions and in the install portion I push allow update.zip installation and then install /sdcard/update.zip (depreciated).

    it then says - E: can't open /sdcard/update.zip (no such file or directory) installation aborted.


    ehhh what do/did i do?

    I am having a problem with creating a nandroid backup. When I choose to create either a simple or advanced backup, it either says attempting...and does nothing forever, or it says exited with error 32. I've searched and cannot find an explanation for error 32. Can anyone help me?

    No you don't. In my exercise in Post #20 I had to twice. Timestamps show how long it took.

    If you don't know if you are running 32 bit windows or 64 bit windows and try to install the wrong drivers it politely tells you to use the other drivers and won't install the wrong ones.

    Have you ever made one before and now it is not working or your first attempt at creating one is not working?

    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/tech-issues-bug-reports-suggestions/20546-nandroid-error-codes.html but...error 32 is not in the list.

    <warning...approaching rant>
    This bugs me. Somebody creating the error code. Did they use a random number generator for certain events and call them errors? Why are some of these code's meaning a secret that nobody can figure out? </ rant>

    Try this...when you create an advanced nandroid backup you get to choose its name. Pick something simple, like 20100427 for today's date and let us know how you make out.
