    I just did the second part of the root (full root) and I'm pretty sure it worked, I got no errors while doing it but how do I tell for sure if I have NAND read/write etc?

    Thanks.

    Well, I know Fresh 0.3 installed ok but I did my Nandroid restore and I think I actually might have removed some of the new features.

    Not sure but it pretty much re-wrote ALL my apk files, and I have to wonder what that did to the new updated ones.

    I'd like to know as well.

    I'm also thinking about wiping again, and re-installing Fresh 0.3 ROM. Do I need to do part 2 of that guide all over again? Or was that guide a "one time thing, and i'm set" type of thing?

    If the custom recovery is now permanent, it worked. Just power on while holding vol down and go into recovery. If you don't have to use windows to get in, it worked.

    It's a one time thing.

    During that last adb step, when you type "reboot recovery," you will boot into a working recovery if it worked. You can also download AdFree or Root Explorer from the Market and see if they work without errors.

    Oh.. Hey! Adfree does work now. Before it would not install the host file properly.

    Guess it worked. Well there is one way for people to tell, if Adfree works right now, part two took! :D

    I'm still not sure if I should have done the Nandroid advanced data recovery though. I'm worried I lost "features" or possible things Fresh 0.3 installed or updated.

    Thoughts?
