    I recently rooted and am having issues with my current rom. My question is, can someone tell me how to do a backup of its current state now. So that way i can try a different rom. And if its worse i would be able to go back to this one right?

    You are on the right track since you should always make a Nandroid backup before flashing a new ROM.

    For a really nice visual example, check-out erisuser1's "Finishing Up" post: http://androidforums.com/all-things-root-eris/127861-universal-eris-root-dummies.html#post1186824 -- just be sure to stop before you get to figure #38.

    Here's a quick list if you've already done this and know how to navigate in Amon_RA's custom recovery:

    1. Boot into custom recovery (assuming Amon_RA's)
    2. Select "Backup/Restore"
    3. Select "Nand Backup"
    4. After the backup completes, return to the main menu and select "Reboot system now"

    Good luck.

    Yes, Nandroid backups go to the /sdcard/nandroid folder. You would need to save them off of the /sdcard to another storage medium if you wipe the /sdcard.
