    A few questions...
    1 - How do you "know" that your DROID is rooted?
    2 - What exactly what do you mean by "-1-click way"?
    3 - "do i need to install hard spl or JFv1.42_RC33 to use nandroid" <- :confused: Where the heck did you get that "info"? :confused:

    "Ive modded my kids Xbox and PS and psp" ... so have most other 14-year-olds. :D

    All joking aside, I'm here to help. Though I would like you to answer the questions above, then we can go from there. :)

    #2 it was one that i changed to update.zip and ran it. i will find later if important

    #3 found this a a couple of places when searching

    Re: how do i use nandroid?
    it looks intimidating, but it's actually pretty easy. you can simply copy and paste the commands into the command prompt window. when you do use nandroid, it makes a complete backup to your sd card. i'll go look for the post and see if iu can simplify it a little.
    On Phone
    What you need on your phone:
    - JesusFreke's RC Mods installed (example JFv1.42_RC33)
    - SPL installed (example HardSPL)

    Backing up Phone
    - Boot into recovery(home+power)
    - Press Alt+B to start Nandroid (files are stored on SD card, note: it may be over 100 megabytes)
    - Reboot (Home+ Back) this is pretty self explanatory

    On Computer
    What you need on your computer:
    - Fastboot Windows application
    - Android USB driver installed . plug your phone in to pc with usb debugging enabled. do not mount the sdcard to the pc!!!(device manager > ADB interface > manually select the folder with the driver) you'll need to download the android sdk from here Redirecting...
    extract it anywhere. go to the root of your c drive. make a folder called android. inside the android sdk is a folder called tools. copy all the files from that to the android folder you just created. also, place fastboot.exe into thew android folder.

    Find these in your phone's SD card and put them in your computer: place all 3 of these files directly in the android folder you created
    - data.img
    - system.img
    - boot.img

    OK ... good. Yes, you are rooted, and you've tried to do your homework. I can work with a person like that. Send me a PM and I'll provide you with the links you need to get you straightened out. :)
