    I was wondering what you guys use for your backups? Do you make backups using RM, backups by booting into clockwork recovery and doing a nandroid? Whats the best way?

    I prefer to boot into clockwork and do a nandroid backup that way.

    yeah. Previous times I've done it that way I was able to put a name to it, an some other times it just goes straight into the backup. How do I make sure I can put a name to it?

    You can go into Rom manager and manage your backups. It allows you to change the names so you can keep track of them. I don't think clockwork allows you to put a name on it right from recovery, maybe sprecovery does but I'm not sure. It's been a while since I used it.

    oh alright, so a nandroid backup that I do from booting into clockwork recovery, will show up in my "manage and restore backups" option in RM?
