    Read as much as you can before doing anything. I suggest youtube. Search nandroid backup and you will get step by step instructions on how to do it. And of course, these forums!
    You have a d2 like me, so get droid 2 bootstrap recovery app. One of the most valuable apps around.

    Nandroid B-Up

    :gotmyvote:Yes Hello ,{ I have an app Titanium Backup } <---ur Quote.
    K start there.1st off I personally will clear all cashe, and stop as many apps , using (Watchdog) NO App Killer. Next go into Marketplace and search either Droid 2 Bootstrapper, or Jrummy, or Jrummy16, either one will get u the Bootstrapper, and it's free, I suugest Jrummy cause U can get I would say 5 Must have rooted apps from him.Step 2 . Open Titanium .- settings- batch- run backup of all apps and data. K now u have a Regular backup. Step 3- K now go to apps and select Droid 2 bootstrapper(what u dwnlded) When it opens u are going to press top button (Bootstrap Recovery) after u do this wait 1 sec .and a message should pop up saying (Sucess) After u see that u are going to press the second button(Reeboot Recovery) Step 4 .Allright welcome to Clockwork, this is ur recovery screen/toolbench. Now w. the volume buttons navigate to the Option (Backup)select this . and scroll to yes .selections are finalized by camera button and power button to reverse or go back.It will start the backup process u r now making ur 1st Nandroid backup. When it is all done u will hit (Reboot) button , top option i believe.Step 5 ..U should boot back to home screen!
    Good Luck! :icon_ worthless:

    Titanium backup only backs up applications and/or data. A nandroid backup is a full image file of your system at a moment in time. It backs up everything. You want to do both. Use titanium to backup your apps, then a nandroid backup in clockwork recovery to back up your current system. If that doesn't make sense to you yet, watch videos on youtube and read the forums first! I would hate to see you mess anything up

    Yes. Its always a good idea to make a backup before making any changes to your phone. If you happen to get caught in a bootloop, going to recovery/clockwork and flashing your backup will get you going again.

    You can always transfer your backups to your pc or delete the older ones. They will be located in /sd/clockwork/backups.

    Yeah always transfer backups to your pc just in case your sd card gets corupt or something. Personally I don't use rom manager on the d2. I was told to stay away from it and stick with d2 bootstrap

    If you have bootstrapper, throw rom mangler out the window, IMHO.
    Another way to have your backups with you is to transfer them to DropBox. If you don't know what that is, its a type of online storage or just google it. There's an app on the market and a program for your pc.

    Not to mention, there is a leaked and rooted Gingerbread Rom for the Droid 2 at MyDroidWorld. Read the discussions in the forum to make sure you avoid boot-loops (or bricking) if you decide to go this route. However, it sounds like this pre-release may soon be replaced like the Droid X pre-release was. Droid 2 Gingerbread (2.3.3) - Release - PreRooted

    Not to sound dumb, but what exactly is the purpose of the gingerbread rom?

    It's an Official Release Candidate: a mostly polished version of GB that is in testing with Motorola and Verizon Wireless to decide if it is worthy of being released or needs to go back for bug fixes. (Of course, it's Rooted, so not exactly the official version).

    Don't get me wrong, there are plenty of good custom build 2.2 (froyo) based Roms out there. The difference is with the GB 2.3 is that it is mostly an official build and still contains Blur (although Ninja Blur). If you like Blur (not judging you), you will probably love the updated Blur on 2.3 in that it runs FAST. Unlike Blur on the Droid 2 runing 2.2, the experience is night and day on the GB update. Just my two cents.
