Good point - That works if you decide to go into recovery and you don't want to open the program again. I'll add that to the instructions.

FYI - If you open Rom manager again and repeat steps 4-7 it also works.

Nevermind I renamed the manual install .zip to update.zip and it worked now.

maybe someone can elaborate.....the wiki says it makes a FULL system backup....so if I'm wanting to restore my email accounts, settings, wallpaper, scene, ringtones, etc.....would a nandroid backup be what I want?

Pretty sure this makes completely full backups... so yes, you would want this nandroid.

It takes a few minutes to complete the backup.

Ok, so now the next/obvious question...

I install OMJ EVO 2.1 Eclair v1.2 and do a nandroid backup in the recovery screen afterwards.

Tomorrow, there is new version of the rom OMJ EVO 2.1 Eclair v1.3, with some tweaks that I like so I decide to flash that rom.

Could I then go into recovery and restore my Nandroid backup to get all my stuff setup again? (i.e. wallpaper/email accounts/shortcuts/widgets)

Or, does this just work if I decide to re-flash OMJ EVO 2.1 Eclair v1.2 which is what the backup was for?

If the newer rom has updated apps or removed apps, your nandroid that has older versions or the apps that were removed..and it will put them back...

So restoring a nandroid wouldn't be a good idea...since it has EVERYTHING!!
