    I was wondering how do i create a back up for my phone? Like say i install a Rom (when they are released) and my phone stops working or doesnt work properly. How do i create a file of all my info and app info so i can flash that and have my phone return to the normal (before the rom was installed)? Replies are much appreciated. Thank you

    Think you should read up on custom recovery before doing this install. Backup are made in the recovery. Theres no need for rom manager since the recovery is not officially supported by CWM, and messing around with rom manager(flashing stuff not meant for our phone) will lead you to a BRICKED device.

    But the way i did the install was i used CMD(command prompt) and flashed the recovery in fastboot.

    But you need to know some basic adb commands to use the root method.

    You can backup your phone on your computer with something like WonderShare MobileGo and/or you can backup your phone on the SD Card in Recovery.This would be the way I would backup my phone.

    I installed CWM recovery using the "CMW Based Touch Recovery" fourm. I have CMW recovery. I went into CMW recovery (hold power button + volume down) went to "back up and restore" selected "backup" and it started. I came back and it said System completed....etc but at the bottom it said "Backing Up Data....Error while making backup image of /data!" Is this the correct way of creating a back up? Why am i getting this error?
    Edit: uh oh. changing fonts and when it rebooted it got stuck on the boost mobile start up animation.Pulled battery and loaded up CWM recovery. What can i do?

    There a thread on here with a cwm backup file. Download it and get into recovery wipe data/cache/dalvik cache then flash it to get back to a booting rom

    You will lose your data but have a working phone

    cannot wipe data in cwm Recovery v6.0.3.0. when i select "wipe data/factory reset" it says:

    "Confirm wipe of all user data?"
    "THIS CANNOT BE UNDONE."

    Then it gives 5 options and they all say "No"
    Yes option was near the bottom

    Put this file in the ClockworkMod/Backup folder on your sdcard and restore from CWM. U must have some way to put it on the card other than the phone if you can not boot into android like a pc card slot.
    Do not Use Rom Manager or Font Changer on Google Play!

    THE WIPE....Do it anyway, scroll down and wipe it and do the same with cache and dalvik. if that doesnt fix your loop then follow the above.

    im using an sd card adapter. i put the card back in the phone, load up cwm recov. do i select "install zip from sd card" > "choose zip from sdcard"?

    No if you put the file on the card in the folder I specified then select restore. If the file he put on the net is in a zip file you will need to unzip it or extract it then put in that folder.

    OK then when you unzip it to a folder then copy the 1970 folder to your backup folder in the clockworkmod folder.

    Put the card back in the phone then turn on with the volume down+Power at same time to boot into CWM then select backup & restore then select restore.

    Now when you install all your favorite games and apps and contacts create a "Nandroid" backup file of your own in the custom recovery. Thats the purpose of the Custom Recovery.
    And for Gods sake dont use Font Changer or Rom Manager!
    Have fun
