Is this something recommended or essential? I'm new to rooting here, as of yesterday I have my first rooted phone (Droid 1). I would assume that using Rom Manager to flash clockworkmod recovery would allow me to go back to stock rooted 2.2 FRG22D if I tried to flash a custom ROM.
I tried some things within' ROM manager: I flashed clockworkmod recovery and tried to do "Backup Current ROM" and it failed.
Is there a guide that I can follow for the D1 that will explain Rom Manager and how to use it?
Thanks for the help!
