    Uses adb, reboot recovery, nandroid backup, copy that backup off to your computer or even keep it on the SD card. Once you get your new phone just flash the firmware, root, and then restore the nandroid backup. It'll be like you never skipped a beat.

    You can probably keep your SD card, meaning you won't have to back anything up. But just incase, what you will want to keep is the nandroid backup(s). SPRecovery creates them in /sdcard/nandroid/ and Clockwork recovery creates them in /sdcard/clockworkmod/ These folders may be capitalized, my wife is addicted to FrozenBubble so I can't look at the exact names of the directories. hehe

    You can just take those folders off of your SD card to your PC. Then when you get your replacement, place them back on the SD card > root the new phone > restore backup or something along those lines.

    Personally I back up my nandroid backups on my PC anyhow, just in case something goes wrong with my phone, like say it goes swimming without a life jacket. The SD Card and phone may both be destroyed in that adventure, but if I get the replacement phone, I still have my backups.

    I assume your new droid has 2.1 installed, so you will need to get a custom recovery on it. How-To Root your stock 2.1 Droid <-- that will get SPRecovery on your phone. If you were using SPRecovery before, this is pretty much all you will need to do. Copy the Nandroid folder from your previous SD card, and restore your backup.

    If you wanted to get clockwork on there, you will then have to root the phone. You can do this by installing a ROM, then putting ROM manager on the phone once rooted. Then using ROM Manager to install Clockwork recovery. You then can revert to a backup, or just install the data portion of the backup using clockwork.
