ok here is something weird. i flashed the recovery using the terminal emulator method and everything worked great for awhile...then i discovered all the other roms available for the optimus and i wanted to try them out so just did a nand backup of the one i was using so i could just restore it and i wouldnt have to go through all the setup shit and that worked for a day or so...but today i tried to do a nand restore and the only thing that happens is this "Error : run 'nandroid-mobile.sh restore' via adb!" i even tried to just reflash the recovery and it is stilling happening. what the hell does that mean and how do i fix it???!!!

Backup isn't working right with this recovery. Try this one: http://androidforums.com/getitnowmarketing/330813-all-one-recovery-thread.html

Your old backup still might not install, but new ones you make certainly will...
