Im trying to install nandroid by following the steps on the following site Custom Recovery Image - Root Your Droid and it detects the phone but cant find the flash_file on my card at the dd if=/sdcard/flash_image of=/data/local/flash_image step and i have the file on my card i just have it at the bottom of my card is it supposed to be in a certain folder and is it supposed to be a text file cause thats the only way i seem to be able to get it to download. Any advice or answers would be much appreciated. I know there are other forums on issues like these but many are issues with it not detecting the phone.

if you downloaded flash_image.txt, remove the ".txt" and try again.. also make sure you have the 'hide extensions' unchecked if you're using windows

It's under Organize --> Folder and Search Options ---> View

[EDIT] Alternatively you could just run:

dd if=/sdcard/flash_image.txt of=/data/local/flash_image

Droidrootpro is worth the money imo to do all this stuff painlessly for you...

Check bin and xbin... it may be in one and not the other

You installed both flash and busy box? You mounted both drives? It worked flawlessly for me...
