you dont explain how - like you said yourself other guides makes assumptions you know enough to do certain things but many dont
8. Do a nandroid backup - I cannot stress the importance of this enough. (Also, a well documented issue with unrevoked is that this ^^ can cause a boot loop). This happened to me, and boy did I freak.... but really its simple....To fix, simply restore your nandroid backup from a minute ago.
again how? its not documented as nandroid in recovery, people who know the environment well enough knows what this is but its actually "backup and restore"
You should also mention that people should scroll and select with the trackpad once in recovery as if they use power it will just switch off the screen (as someone has done earlier on and the other day)
I'm a noob looking to do exactly what you've advertised, William - root (already done) and flash a new ROM with A2SD+. Your guide could be a real help, but I haven't got the foggiest on the above, so it's useless to me. Please could you (or some other kind soul) expand on this as it soulds pretty bloody critical to me.
Furthermore, as I understand it, some folks may wish / need to wipe the old ROM first. Again, how do you do this? Step-by-step instructions would be helpful...!
