    what is a good frequency for backing up through ROM manager. I would assume anytime that you change any kernal/rom/function that uses the ROM manager. Was curious what other people were doing?

    I try to backup about once a month or before any major change. For example, I update.zipped a 1GHz kernel today and made sure I had a good backup before I applied it.

    My backups take up the majority of my SDcard (I have barely any music/movies on there), so I have plenty. It's easy enough to get into Astro (or mount via PC) and delete the old ones to save space. I generally backup everytime I add a theme/kernel or a new ROM. It takes a few extra minutes, but if you end up in a bootloop, you can always restore one step back, instead of one MONTH back.

    Pretty much good policy to backup every time before (and also after if you want to have a clean slate backup) you flash something.
