    mybackup restored the icons where my apps used to be but they won't download from the market. It just says starting download but never starts. Any suggestions?

    Go to the market and try downloading the apps manually.

    I'm running a linux computer and I'm not so great with the terminal. Honestly I wouldn't know how to describe what went wrong. I tried following toasts method/ tutorial over at xda. I got root but not s-off or nand unlock. I managed to flash the image and wipe my phone.

    Here's a link if you're interested or know anyone that might be able to help.

    I hit a lot of hangups in the process, cleared a few hurdles, but around post 43-47 I hit the snag that I couldnt shake loose.

    Thanks. A few folks tried to help me and I appreciated it very much. If anyone else sees the thread and can figure out what I'm screwing up I'll be back tomorrow. Thanks for taking an interest.
