I followed the directions for rooting, and made the backup as instructed. I have not flashed a new ROM yet, still running root on stock 2.1. If (when) I flash a new ROM, running a nandroid restore with the idea of getting all my settings back would not be a good idea. Right? This will help me only if I go back to the factory OS, right? I just don't want to deal with having to set up all my apps, settings, UI preferences, etc. But if I switch ROMs, there no way around it, right? I've read other threads on backups, and don't have a good feel for this question based on my reading. Thanks for your help.
