I'm trying to download Pete's new Bugless Beast and it says to use Nandroid. I have SPRecovery and all. I download his buglessbeast.rar or whatever and when i unrar it, about 4 files come out in the same location as the original unrared one. Are these files supposed to be in a file before performing a nandroid restore? If so, what would the name of the folder be?

When you unrar it, you should have a folder. Inside that folder should be several files, but no folders.

Put the unzipped folder into your nandroid folder on your sd card and boot to recovery.

When you extract you can choose: Extract to BDSxxx, It will put the 4 files in a folder for you and then you just drag and drop it.

I see those files, but there aren't any folders for them to go to

If you right click the .rar file, the first choice you see is "extract files. " Choose that. A folder beginning with BDS-2010 containing the extracted files will automatically be created. Drop that folder into the nandroid folder on your SD card. That's it!
