    Reading through various threads regards setting up apps2sd they all go on about Nandroidbackup, but I'm at a loss on what to do..

    Am running JV1.5 ADP, recovery_testkeys and splhard, now all instructions are saying boot into recovery mode and press Alt+B to perform the backup, but when I go into recovery mode I don't have Alt+B, so do I need to do something else.

    Also other's have said to complete setting up of the ext2 partition I need to press Alt-X while in recovery mode to enter more commands, but again I don't have this option.

    So am I missing something or not done a step during the flashing process

    Full Info on phone
    MN = Android Dev Phone 1
    Firm = 1.5
    Base = 62.50s.20.17h_2.22.19.26i
    kern = 2.6.27-00392-g8312baf (jesusfreke@androiddev)
    build = dream_devphone-userdebug 1.5 crb21 147201 test-keys

    thanks

    If you are running jf's recovery then it has to be in there.... when you go to recovery what exactly do you see... if you see no writing at all hit alt+L

    i've sorted it, the options were removed from JF1.5 & 1.51 (found out on xda forums after posting on there). Downloaded the file JFv1.43 Recovery and installed and now when go into recovery I get ALT+B & ALT+X options

    recovery file

    I believe it depends on which Recovery_TestKeys ROM you use

    I used these ... and do have the Alt-B Nandroid backup feature on the phone ...

    RapidShare: Easy Filehosting

    AND also :

    the Engineering Boot Loader ..

    It actually states on JF website where you can download the roms that the nandroid backup was removed from 1.5 & 1.51 as had some issues, and to use ealier version to get nandroid back on.

    I have a modified build of the JF ADP 1.5 build that contains fixes to the SU and whitelist ... and with the testkeys, and bootloader I have the Alt-B feature ..

    I believe it to be part of the bootloader/recovery ...
    I have Confirmed this on the xda-developer's site that it is in the engineering/dev spl bootloader !!!

    The only way I was able to get nandroid was to "go back" to JF's 1.42/RC33 build, then roll forward to 1.5. JF has a standalone recovery file to install, but I was not able to get it to work, so I went the downgrade/upgrade path.

    And yes, you will have to wipe...
