    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.
