    I apologize if this has been addressed already but if I take the plunge into the new leaked update I cannot restore my previous nandroids correct? T'would be bad?

    Guessing they would not since it updates the Bootloader. Just thinking out loud, not sure.

    Yes, I'm fairly certain that it would be very bad...

    I would be willing to bet the device wont boot if you do this. The absolute very first thing I did after updating was delete every single backup I had made so I don't accidentally end up using one. In fact I just deleted the whole clockworkmod folder and let it repopulate itself.

    Furthermore, restoring data through Titanium backup would also be bad, right? But restoring apps is OK?

    Just to be safe I would not restore data. Apps should be fine unless noted otherwise where you got the leak.

    Multiple posts in the official leak thread state that it can result in a brick. Don't restore to a previous nandroid after doing the update, unless you can confirm otherwise.

    I can't remember if the system SBF, for the leak, will recover it either. Just do it proper, and either update and delete your nandroids, or don't update until the full SBF is out.

    Just wondering
    i have bootloader 30.01 and Running Rubix 1.8.6 which puts the Android version at 2.2.1
    now i thought when the system changes to 2.2.1 that the bootloader will be 30.04 or something. Am I wrong? or is my phone just weird

    No. Rubix 1.8.6 is loosely based on 2.2.1 files but not a full fledged 2.2.1 Leak Rom. Thats what RubiX1.9.3 is.

    Just wondering, but how has the 2.2.1 worked out for you so far? I've held off on updating my version until it gets more "officiall-y". Do you see better battery life out of it in conjunction with rubix?

    Not sure if you saw my story or not, I have posted it on a few different sites. My updating to the leak was a 100% complete accident. If I could go back I would in a heartbeat because I simply was not ready to flash the leak yet and I don't like having my hands tied.

    Unfortunately at the moment I am too afraid to flash anything else so I am still on Jrummy RX at the moment, which has been awesome. But the fact that I can't flash back makes me want it that much more, if that make sense o_O

    I restored data through Titanium Backup (NOT THROUGH NANDROID) and did not have any issue. I am on the 2.2.1 leak and restored apps and data from 2.2 (using Titanium) and everything worked perfectly.

    That said, I did exactly what GrandMasterB did and immediately deleted all of my old nandroids just to be safe.

    +1 just make sure you don't restore any system apps or data.

    Correct! I should have cautioned about that in my post. Thanks! :D
