    So I went to partition my sd card so I could get more room on XTR I had the rom loaded, and set up, and I partioned the sd card (just chose Partition SD card option in the boot menu), and now when I rebooted my phone, it says "process android.process.acore has stopped unexpectedly". And I can't reload any nandroid back ups can I can't get the phone to get past this screen. Do I physically need to take my SD card out, mount it to my computer, put the contents of my SD card that I have on my computer back onto the sd card, and put it in my phone? Or is there an easier way to get past this process error?

    The process of partitioning the SD card wipes all data from the card. So yes, you'll need to plug the card into your computer to retrieve your backed-up data.
    You didn't mentioned that you did the ext2 to ext3 part of the partitioning process, if you didn't, do that before you restore your data.

    By the way, kudos for backing your card! :)

    As far as restoring the contents of your SD card go, remember that the Amon_RA recovery boot has a main menu entry called "USB-MS toggle".

    So, you don't need to have a SD card reader for your PC, and you don't need the main OS to be bootable if you use that facility to copy files to/from the FAT32 partition of your SD card via the phone & USB cable.

    Just be sure to "Safely Remove Hardware" (or "Eject Drive" on Win7) on the PC after you have finished copying files and before you turn the USB-MS toggle off in Amon_RA.

    This will allow you to restore the Nandroid backup sets you had onto your SD card (from the backup of your entire SD card you made to the PC), and from there you can use a "Nand restore" to restore a prior ROM - in the same boot of Amon_RA


    PS As mhotovec points out, it is best to be using an ext3 partition instead of an ext2 partition. You don't need to re-partition the card - just run the ext2 to ext3 conversion menu item in Amon_RA. (This should not touch the FAT32 partition, so it can be done after you have already restored things to the SD card - but I would do the ext2 to ext3 thing before you start using apps2sd).

    PS2 Please change the title of your post to something informative - "Might have a problem" is not. (Click on the "Go Advanced" button to access the post title). Creating posts with vague titles causes people (that might want to help you, but are unable) to unnecessarily waste their time.
