When doing a nandroid restore should I wipe before hand?
That would be a bad idea
Erase everything on the phone
Backup everything on the phone
Epic fail come recovery time.
ahh, no fair, you edited
I do not do a wipe before doing a restore but I always do an advanced backup and restore so I am replacing everything anyways.
Hah yeah I cought my typo right as i posted it! I do wipe, multiple times every time i do a restore. I havent used advanced yet. What are the differences between regular and advanced nandroid backup?
the advanced lets you pick which parts of the rom you want backed up. It also lets you name it. The regular just replaces the previous backup with the current one you have.
I name them by rom flavor, version, and date. That way I can roll back to another one if need be, which happened once when a new rom didn't have maps working right and I needed navigation.
Ill back up every time i have a stable fast/smooth setup I like. Then use rom manager to rename it. Im sending my phone into insurance monday due to a washed out screen so i just copy my backups to my pc. Will be nice to be able to root and flash with and oced rom with all my apps on it already on a fresh new phone! =] Are you using Clockwork Recovery?
I am not sure if Christim is using ClockworkMod or SPrecovery, but I am using CWM and I can tell you that your backups are saved on your sd card in a folder named clockworkmod. so as long as you keep your current sd card, once you get your new phone, root it and start it up you can apply your backup rather easily.
I'm not using CW. As just mentioned both recovery tools will store the backups on the card. CW does a full backup and SPRecovery has the regular and advanced nandroid backup. The advanced one lets you do the full backup, which I always choose. Your CW recovery will get you back in working order just fine.
