I would like to attempt my first back up file. After spending some time reading about overclocking, it came to my attention that I should make a nandroid back up before experimenting with different overclock settings. I didn't know files can become corrupt with overclock tweaking. Now I know.

BTW, below is a really nice link about overclocking
http://www.droidforums.net/forum/rescue-squad-guides/47871-overclocking-101-a.html

My dx is rooted of course. I haven't messed with any of my files. I'm aware that erasing proprietary apps can lead to a bricked phone. I'm also aware that titanium backup is capable of freezing apps, I'm just not at that level yet. I have Titanium back up, droid X bootstrap recovery, and astro installed on my phone. Can somebody please share a good link on how I should save my first nandroid backup.

Also, how is titanium back up different than a nandroid back up? Is there a file backup 101 somewhere, anywhere? Nandroid recovery for dummies maybe? Thanks

I suggest "rom manager" from the market.

There is an option in there to back up your current rom. - I think that is the same thing as a nandroid backup.

Basically creates an image of your phone. Like an iso file. If you restore it, it restores everything exactly how you had it.
Where Titanium just creates backups of each app.


Best way I can describe it.

Im sure someone else could give you more technical details.

Not very reliable though. Bootstrapper is the route would work better.
