    I didn't read his instructions. I can type them as fast as I can go find them & read them tho. If mine differ then find out what is going on from him.

    Download on a PC then transfer to sd/clockworkmod/backup. Boot into recovery. Select backup & restore then restore. Select the folder.

    It sounds like you are trying to flash. You can't flash it because it is a nandroid.

    Edit: If it doesn't work it should say md5 mismatch.

    You can't flash it. It is a nandroid. Please follow the instructions above but with this addition to the front of the list: Unzip package & transfer folder "Speedfreak2.0" to sd/clockworkmod/backup.

    Don't have to but won't hurt. It gets don when you restore.

    could it possibly be a bad dl?

    also, you must use 7zip to unzip it, winrar causes mismatches.

    5.0.x.x and 6.0.x.x are compatible. I load between them fine.

    Any backup I make with .1.5 would get md5 error. I could load ones made with other backups

    This problem perplexes me. I wonder what is causing it. I tried to flash the ice cream dream nandroid and I got a mismatch. Strange.
