    probably a reread for some of you but I've looked around n can't find my answers.

    On my old HTC I was able to create a backup of my phone in its current state in case I need recovery later on. I'm not figuring out how to open this menu as I know it's something done during turn on. what buttons am I to hold on the rezound?

    also side question. is there a way to save texts to something like say the sdcard and then pull them back up after factory reset?

    Jeff.

    There is an app called sms backup that will save your texts. Not sure if it saves them to sd card.

    you're probably talking about making a nandroid? you can access recovery (assuming you are rooted and you've flashed a recovery - amon ra or cwm) by holding volume down and power at the same time.

    for sms backup/recovery theres plenty like sms backup restore (stores to your google acct), mybackup, titanium, go backup - the latter three can be stored on sd through changing settings

    that's it nandroid. actually not rooted though. I want to protect myself from screwing up during rooting/factory reset by creating the recovery point.

    thanks for the help that's exactly what I was looking for.
