Default Do i need a external sd card for installing a new rom?

Maybe to backup all storage to internal sd card is not enough. BEcause its size is 2 gb.

What do you say about that? Do i first buy a sd card for a better rom changing?

i believe yes. Because you will have to use clockwork mod to install ZIP file (new ROM). clockwork mod has only option to browse through SD card.. so i think you will have to by it

sure... CWM is good for backuping..
I think backup is going to be loaded on the internal storage... but u will put your ZIP file (costum rom) on the external SD card...
i dont think you can browse internal storage with CWM...




as you see on the picture, you will browse for your ZIP file on the external SD card...

actually i have just found out that you won't need EXTERNAL SD card.
I have installed new CWM on my phone and figured out that new version can browse internal storage too... that means that you don't have to by sd card...

ClockworkMod 5.5.0.4 LINK: http://www.mediafire.com/?od4iym44ladqhng

But you have to check what version of CWM that rom you are trying to install needs...
Not every ROM works with every CWM (e.g if you have very old CWM and new ROM, it probably won't work)
