    Hey guys,

    Sorry if this has already been asked - I couldn't find what I was looking for by searching the forums.

    I'm trying to "jump on the ROM train," and I recently just rooted my phone. I created a flash, reverting back to 2.0.1, and installed the Update.zip in recovery mode (meaning of course that I'm now rooted, with "SuperUser Permission" in my application list.

    I am now trying to create a nandroid backup, but am having some troubles. I have been following "DroidReview's" youtube video on doing this (YouTube - Motorola DROID - How to Create a Nandroid Backup - Part 1), but I'm stuck on the part in DroidRootHelper where I am to select "Mount mtdblock4." More specifically, this option doesn't exist in my DroidRootHelper application! Any suggestions? I'm guessing that this youtube video is just old, and DroidRootHelper has been changed or updated. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks.

    To make a Nandroid backup, you should have SPRecovery installed. Since you installed the update.zip in recovery mode, you obviously have SPRecovery installed, so boot into recovery, then go to Nandroid and do a simple Nandroid backup

    (sorry if the instructions are not exact, as I have not used SPR in a very very long time).
