    I've looked on google, but they mention nothing of the eris, I want to be sure how to nandroid backup for the eris so I don't screw up while rooting.

    You make a nandroid after its rooted and after you've installed the amon's recovery image. Just boot into recovery mode and make a backup, it takes about a minute or so and when its done you'll have a complete back up of your phones internal memory. If you ever mess things up down the road when flashing a rom you can always recover and reflash it with one of your backups to get you back up and running.

    Yeah i did a backup right after the amons recovery image was installed, at least then if i messed anything up with the flashing of the new rom i'd be able to restore it back to that point and go from there.

    I though I read somewhere that you can have multiple Nandroid backups? For example one for each rom?
    If true, how do I do this?

    I just did my second backup, but still only see one for me to restore....

    Edit. Nevermind. I was just looking at the folder that contained both backups inside...

    Just create them from inside recovery mode. Afterwards, look in your SD card for a "NANDROID" folder. You can rename each one to remind you which ROM is which. Hope this helps.


    EDIT: Sorry, missed your edit. I apologize for the redundancy.
