    Hey everyone,

    I've searched around the forums, internet, and twitter trying to find an easy way to just do a nandroid backup and I can't get a clear answer. I'm using the directions at droid-life.com to install the Cyanogenmod For Droid V5.0.5 and it mentions to do a full backup (as people also have recommended to do no matter what anyways) -- but I have no idea how to do one easiest. Some say it's built into installing ROMs, others are asking me to download like 5 different applucatiions. Figured there has to be a quick and easy way

    thanks

    Reboot into your recovery (regardless of SPRecovery or Clockwork)

    Choose 'nandroid' or 'backup/restore'

    Choose backup.

    thanks! but should I do this right after I root (And get SuperPermission) or once I get CyanogenMod menu? Cause I think there is a "backup" option in CyanogenMod, but wasnt' sure if that was the same thing

    Your current recovery, SPRecovery, can be used with any backup you've made in SPRecovery and for any ROM except Cyanogen. When you flash over to ClockworkMod you'll ONLY be able to make backups that work with ClockworkMod and the only backups you can use are ones made in ClockworkMod and Koush's Cyanogen ROMs.
