    Well, I had actually removed 3 different programs and one of them was causing the force close. I'm almost positive it was the calender storage one. Same problem that everyone else was having when they got the error. Problem is when i cleared the data and everything else like their posts said to do, i still got the error. So i had to run the backup. Not a big deal, it's just the first time i've ever messed anything up while playing around and i always start with a nandroid and end with one. Making them at different points along the way if i think what i'm about to do can be dangerous... I.E. removing the calender after reading about FC's.

    I didn't want to start a new thread to ask this simple question....

    Does Nandroid restore application databases, i.e. GroceryIQ? I was thinking about trying out the Froyo beta ROM for my Hero but didn't want to wipe and then find out I couldn't go back, with a nandroid restore, to my GroceryIQ and have all the items I added.

    If so....Amen!!

    yes... a nandroid is an exact duplicate of your phone at the time the nandroid was made.

    I just want to say thank god for nandroid:):):) Not sure exactly what happened, went into terminal emulator and wanted to turn off jit (I'm running cSrOm 2.1.2) to see if there was any difference. Did not see a huge difference so I turned jit back on. In the terminal emulator (still shaking, scared myself):confused: it asked about davlik cache on sd card and I hit yes. :confused:Everything started to force close, could not open anything. So I tried to reboot phone and it got stuck on HTC screen. Did not do a thing:eek: So I pulled battery, volume down, red power button and then booted into recovery. Picked the nandroid (which was cSrOm 2.1.2) and the damn phone rebooted:eek: So happy right now I could just shit!!!!! Glad I did all that research on rooting with the help of all you guys here at the android forums, I freaked out for a couple of minutes and now everything back to normal:rolleyes: So again, THANK YOU NANDROID:):):)

    The only problem i've experienced with nandroid is that you have to play with bluetooth after restoring to get your headset recognized again.
