    Got .902 up and running, back on kin3tx rom, (which evidently shoes the old radio # even though its working with the 902.) Weird. Anyways, how would one go about changing the backup name? I tried to go in and change the name through astro file manager, and when I tried to restore it, the md5 sum didn't match and it didnt work. I've since gone through and made my new backups, but the file name of date month year etc is goin to get confusing to keep track of. Should I leave the file name and just add something to it, or is there another way to change the whole file name?

    Thanks a bunch

    Kin3tx was released before the .902 update so it shows the older radio/kernel in About Phone, but that is just text coded into some files. You have the .902 radio working in the rom.

    If you made a nandroid backup in bootstrap recovery with cwm, you can rename backups as long as you do not use any spaces. Spaces will kill the md5 checksum validation. I have restored nandroid backups that I renamed as long as I used no spaces in the name.
