    Ok guys you all have been so helpful. I decided to root the phone again using z4root and still had my purchased cwcovery,rom manager and ti backup.i had to install the z4 again and when i went to root it kinda took a awhile i waited like almost 10 mins and it just kept thinking it wouldn't root so I hit the back button and hit the root button again and it to like 20 secs. but when it booted up it went into clockwork recovery, but i hadn't reinstalled it yet from market so i got real worried but just hit the reboot and it booted up fine. so I reinstalled the apps hit the bootstrap recovery button and then hit reboot in recovery. Made a backup out the gate so I should be good to go. Now I want to rename my backup so I can find it later, when i go to sd card and phone storage the only option is to unmount sd card? i did see something when i went to files in the app drawer and seen phone files>clockworkmod>backup>and the date and some numbers, but i dont think i can rename it there or do i need to move or did i mess up somehow?

    Rename it using Rom Manager, that is probably the easiest way. Go to Manage and Restore Backups and click on the one you want to rename.

    EDIT: ^^^^ what he said. Rename it using rom mgr.

    Back to the Post:

    No, that's exACtly what you rename. If you don't, the backup file name will be the date of the backup. Out of curiosity, have you looked up how to sbf? I think it's better to learn about it beFORE you need it! ;)

    OK found it in rom manager so what should i name it and does it have to have .zip at the end? well believe it or not I haven't even hooked my phone up to my pc yet! I know that's bad right. In the link it say to use my pc. Question when I hook my phone up to the pc does it load like a folder on there and the drivers? Do you have a link I can read about transferring from pc to phone? Thanks for all the reply's much appreciated!

    I rename mine by going into root explorer. Its in SD card > clockworkrecov. > backups and they will have dad's on em. If you rename them make sure you don't put any spaces in the name.
