    This may seem silly, but I haven't been able to find the answer...

    I want to do a nandroid backup, but NOT flash a new ROM - I'm quite happy with the one I've got - but I was going to mess around with things a bit and wanted to play it safe.

    Here's my guess... can someone confirm/correct, please?

    1. Power off.
    2. Power up, holding down Vol-Up and End/Power.
    3. Select Backup/Restore.
    4. Select Nand Backup.
    5. Click to confirm.
    6. Wait.
    7. Now what? Either Reboot System Now, or Power Off is my guess, but I will admit to being clueless at this point.

    thanks in advance!

    mhseris,

    Your steps look just fine. Step 7 will be to reboot.

    Just make sure your phone is fully-charged while doing the Nandorid backup (I always make sure mine is charged and plugged-in during this or any recovery-related process).

    Cheers!

    Just to make things easier, get this app: Quick Boot (Reboot) - Android app on AppBrain

    From here, you can choose to restart in Recovery without powering down and then starting the phone with VolUp depressed. It just makes it that much easier.

    So the revised protocol is:

    1. Quick Boot (Reboot) - choose to start in Recovery.
    2. Select Backup/Restore.
    3. Select Nand Backup.
    4. Click to confirm.
    5. Wait.
    6. Vol-Down to get back to the right menu.
    7. Reboot System Now.

    Worked beautifully! Thanks to both of you for the helpful information.
