    I have been reading through a crazy amount of information and its getting too confusing.

    I want to flash Chevyno1 ss4.7 to my rooted droid. I have rooted using the motocache thread, no probs.

    I have SPRecovery and am familiar with that method of sending to SD card and installing the update.zip files through RSD lite.

    It seems from reading that this ROM is only available through ROM manager (I have the free one, but not paid)...and I would have to reflash clockworkmod recovery to apply this ROM....but I dont want to. I would rather do it using the above method through RSD lite.

    Is that even possible?


    I am new to all this, so another question is...I did a nandroid backup of my current settings just FRG22D rooted using the stock kernel and ROM...I did this incase I do something wrong, I should be able to restore to how my phones current status.

    It's available here too: Index of /froyo/4.7

    You can install with SPR
    Your post was a bit confusing. If you have SPR on your phone you don't need to use RSDlite again. Unless you really mess uo your phone.

    And yes if you restore the backup you made it will take you to the exact state your phone was in before making it.

    You might want to flash CW through the free version of Rom Manager if you are going to use SS 4.7. Chevy sends out his own OTA's that will be one click installs, if you have CW.

    I flashed CWM recovery no problem.

    Do I need to do another nandroid backup after flashing CWM recovery to save my current settings?

    Yes, as your SPR backup will not work with CW
