    So, I've been having some strange issues with gallery and video playback. I want to flash BB 1.1 again, wiping cache, data, everything, but I also want to format my sd card. What order should I do this all in? I really don't want to brick my phone:)

    Thanks.

    Ok, first id probably copy your nandroid folder to your computer, then format the sdcard, then transfer the nandroid folder back, reboot in recovery, make a backup, wipe cache and data, then flash bb

    I've already copied my entire sd card to my computer, so that's taken care of. My question is can I do this process with rom manager which I have installed? I've created backups with rom manager, but its been a while, I can't remember if it has a default folder where it creates the nandroid backup or if I chose where it went.

    The part I have the most questions about is what happens when I format the sd card and how I go about that. I notice that when I go into settings/memory the option to format is greyed out. Do I have to select the option to unmount first before I format? And at that point do I lose my apps? So, if that's the case, would this work?

    Format sd
    Redownload rom manager (if I do lose my apps)
    Drag nandroid folder back over
    Use rom manager to dl bb, and install wiping cache and data

    Does that sound about right?


    Thanks in advance for all the handholding...lol

    1. To format, you have to hit the option above, which is unmount.
    2. Since you're using rom manager, id transfer over the clockwork folder also
    3. You don't lose your apps
    4. MAKE SURE YOU PRESS MAKE A BACKUP AND WIPE DATA/CACHE WHEN IN ROM MANAGER.
    5. SEE NUMBER 4!
    6. I MEAN IT, MAKE A BACKUP!!!!!

    How's that for handholding ;)
