    I'm a newbie. I rooted successfully. I'm now working on creating the backup. I downloaded both droidroothelper and terminal emulator. i clicked and downloaded the tools. Your note says to extract the tools to the sdcard. How? After its complete I click on it in my download history and my options are to open it with Nesoid Lite or SNesoid Lite. How do I "extract"?

    I am looking for the 'show notes' for the video to get the links for the files. What am I doing wrong? I cannot see them.

    Hey guys somehow somewhere I missed the part where the recovery-0.99.2b.img file was downloaded. Do I need this to install a different rom or to complete my nandroid backuk?

    yeah i've done all the steps with 99.3 and 99.0, or whatever the options were, no luck. I keep getting into recovery mode with the exclamation point in the triangle instead of the little Android like he does.

    need new directions...
