    Okay! Made the backup and got Nandroid Browser. Where should I look? I will be here for about 45 minutes and then I'll be going out.

    You should probably just upload the entire nandroid to sendspace.com I think that would be the quickest route for both of you

    Post a link.......but I'm thinking you could also just remove everything but the boot image from the backup folder (the one that gives you the date of the backup) and then just upload that and pmomp could place that in the appropriate location and flash through cwm

    Except my computer isn't allowing me to access the files of this phone. Now what? USB debugging is turned off.

    When prompted, change the connection mode to mass storage and if not prompted go into settings and connectivity and you'll see default connection mode change it

    /sdcard/External_SD/clockworkmod/backup/1980.....and that should be it

    Just upload the one that says 1980whatever that's what he needs

    Edit: you are using an external sdcard correct?

    It's either:

    /sdcard/clockworkmod/backup/{time-stamped backup folder}/

    -or-

    /sdcard/_ExternalSD/clockworkmod/backup/{time-stamped backup folder}/

    Thanks lol I was in th e middle of typing exactly what you just posted when my laptop died (am I the only one who ignores the "please plug in charger" message)

    Edit: so if he uploades the boot.img ill just replace that with the one in my backup folder and restore it and if it screwes it up ill just boot into recovery and restore my second backup

    @ktb if I'm right, can't pmomp just flash the boot.img through cwm if it will let you basically do that anyway in advanced restore

    If not maybe we can just plug the img into the correct file paths (ie create a fake backup file) and then restore it in advanced restore

    He's sending the boot.img alone, we'll figure it out

    Okay. I gotta go. I'm letting the computer upload the file and I will post the link when I get back. I should be back in a couple hours.

    That's possible. Give it a shot. The only reason I'm not sure is that usually each backup has a corresponding nandroid.md5 file which contains an md5 for each partition in the backup and I'm not sure if that will prevent simply doing this as you're suggesting.

    Hmmm....must have decided to upload the whole thing, 8mb doesn't take very long and sendspace makes it super easy to copy a link.....oh well..... lol, guess you got two more hours bro. Lol

    Hey. I'm replying on my phone. Still out. Sorry but I'm uploading the boot.img. I'd have posted it earlier but I was being rushed out the door. I'm also on a 3G connection on my computer. I have a Sprint air card. Not a regular connection. I'm living with my parents and they won't get a regular connection. I know it sounds weird but hey. Anyway, I'll post that link in a half hour or so. Sorry. Don't wanna piss anyone off.
