    Hi all,

    Just rooted my nexus one and I'm loving it so far (first time rooting). However as I used the one click root app my bootloader is still locked (and I'd like to keep it that way) and I'm just wondering how to do a complete phone backup in that circumstance.

    To use nandroid I believe you need a custom recovery image and I don't think that's possible while the boot loader is still locked. Although I hear there may be a workaround for this. Anybody know or maybe if there's an alternative?

    I'm really looking forward to trying out metamorph and a custom keyboard manager that allows different keyboards in landscape and portrait.

    I just ROM Manager in concert with nandroid. I used one click root and I routinely do backups when I'm about to make a change.

    ahhh cheers. I didn't realise you could flash a custom recovery while the bootloader is locked.

    I have heard of issues with others like Clockwork and all that, but always personal choice. :)
