    I managed to wipe my SD card tonight while trying to backup to my pc. Lost most of my nandroid backups, apart from one but I keep getting the md5 error when trying to recover. Checked that no gaps or / in the filename and still get the md5 error.

    I can still use the phone but my problem is the Apps. I appear to be slightly screwed. I transferred most downloaded apps to the SD Card, including ROM Manager and Titanium. The problem is now, for some reason my Android Market app won't load and when I use the web browser to get my apps back from the market it's saying that they're already installed even though they're no longer physically on the phone.

    Is there anyway of getting these back via the market?

    I'm feeling completely pissed off that this has happened so if someone has some good advice on how I can resurrect my apps I'd appreciate it.

    (BTW: Tried the Recuva app on the SD Card but it only found music and image files which I already have backed up anyway)

    You could try wiping the phone a few times in recovery then using the nandroid backup. Or just do a clean flash of your rom of choice. It sounds like the nandroid backup was corrupted in some way.

    What if I did a factory data reset via settings? Would this cause problems on a rooted phone?

    No it shouldn't, but if the error is with messed up app permissions then it wouldn't resolve the issue.

    I wanted to re-flash the Leedroid ROM (currently on Leedroid on an inherited Desire) but I downloaded the zip file from the Leedroid site and it says the file is corrupt when I try to open it on my PC. Tried 3 times and still shows corrupt (non-A2SD version because my SD card isn't partitioned, gparted looks too difficult to use and ROM Manager's been given the No Go on this forum in the last few days) so I'm stuck unless I go with a different ROM.

    I wanted to stay with Leedroid for now because I currently have it but no nandroid backup of it so I think the safer option is to put Leedroid back on if I can get an uncorrupt .zip
