    When you have booted into RECOVERY MODE, and you are either trying to make a Nandroid backup or restore, and you get a "Run nandroid-mobile.sh via adb!" error, then try these things:

    SD Card - it could be too full to write a recovery.
    Try deleting some things and try again.

    "Nandroid folder" inside your SD card -
    If you have renamed some of your backups, then this could also be an issue.
    Change the names back to what they were and try again.

    If anyone else has other experiences please feel free to add them here so others will have something to look at when in need.

    i'm having this problem, it says

    error: run 'nandroid-mobile.sh restore' via adb

    i just rooted and created 3 backups, but tried restoring them and get the above error. i even created a brand new backup and immediately tried to restore it and got that error. thanks for any help.

    and my battery is at 100% and my sd card as 2gb free space on it, and it is fat32. thanks.

    Would changing the folder name of the backup cause any problems? Not the main folder that leads to the backups, but the actual back up folders. I just added "-Cyanogen6-0" to the end, and didn't touch the numbers (I assume it's the date).

    jamezgt,

    Looks like your new name is OK, as long as you have NO spaces in the renames. Usually I do underscores. Have done some where letters run altogether, not sure if length becomes an issue there.
