    heres what you have to do:


    1. take the original .zip of the nandroid back up and place it in /sdcard/clockworkmod/backup
    2. boot into recovery
    3. click nandroid
    4. click "restore"
    5. choose the nandroid you just saved
    6. click "yes"
    7. wait
    8. reboot
    9. ???
    10. profit

    I did do that. I was in recovery mode, made a backup of my device and then returned to the nandroid folder and selected it (after it was unzipped and relocated) and I got the message that the md5 sums were different and it aborted the install.

    Awesome South Park reference, my hat is off to you. So in the original instructions it said to "unzip" the file and then place into the clockworkmod/backup folder. Should I not extract it?

    I do appreciate the help.

    my bad i was thinking ok ROM form

    let me see.... are you sure your putting it in the right place. after your back up did you wipe to factory settings? im not sure if that helps but its worth a try and youve got your backup if you need it

    Well more drama. I found the UD download link on twitter, downloaded it, installed to root of my sd card, booted into recovery, went looking for it...no where to be found. I then mounted my sd card (while in recovery). Pushed it to the phone, again, using droid explorer. Once again, squadouche. I will try the download link you put up there earlier and see if that works, waiting for my phone to reboot to see if I can find what the issue is there.
