    I decided to make a nandroid of stock 2.2.2, one rooted and one not rooted for what ever reason you might want to use it for. Just think of it as a way to quickly go to stock with or without root if you ever need to. This should leave amonra recovery you already have intact.
    You must have a RA_GNM Recovery already installed and be on a Froyo 2.2.1, 2.2.2 based ROM.

    Here's the download link

    Here's stock 2.2.2 nandroid without root

    **For LG Ally Only**
    Do NOT try to flash this over a 2.1 based ROM as it WILL BRICK YOUR PHONE because the radio can't be flashed with a Nandroid.

    You will need to download the file "stock-222-rooted.zip" and unzip it into your sdcard/nandroid/mem=223M directory.

    As with all nandroid's you will need to wipe your Dalvik cache, and wipe all data just to be safe.

    You will get a clean install of 2.2.2 rooted and the little android guy showing, ready to log into your account.

    This will be as from the factory with all the included bloatware, but as you have root and amonra recovery you should easily be able to do what you want with it.

    The below links are to threads others where you can find some useful tools to go along with the above Nandroids. Credit goes 100% to the OP of each of the listed threads.

    If your stuck on a 2.1 ROM and are rooted but unable to update I would suggest you flash frunisher http://androidforums.com/death2all1...cked-fast-stable-themed-updated-4-4-11-a.html
    OR Velocity
    http://androidforums.com/velocity/ OR http://savoxis.com/velocity/
    to get on a 2.2 based ROM then you can always use the above nandroids to get back to 2.2.2 stock if you want to.

    Has anyone tried this yet? I was gonna do it, but I started thinkin' about it and I'm kinda leery, I'm not sure why? And then the "reserved" post from Dautly freaked me out. Like dude's just waitin' to see what happens!
    I'm just messin' around man:rolleyes:, But I would like to know if anyone else has had success with this action?
    And I can flash 1.1 over 2.2.2 safely right?

    Well i tried it, and you can flash velocity 1.0, 1.1 ,frunisher 1.0, over it or vice versa. Any Ally ROM based on 2.2.1 or 2.2.2. so Velocity 1.2 should be fine when it's out also (though I don't have Velocity 1.2 to test it with obviously)
    As far as the reserved spot goes I meant to reserve the second post but got distracted with other things, lol!

    I think I'm gonna try it. Or, is there another way to get 2.2.2(just to be up to date)? Maybe I should just wait for 1.2?
    When I re-flash 1.1 over it, should I have to wipe anything?
    Thanks man!!

    It won't do any good to flash this nandroid just to flash velocity over it again because everything will be overwritten anyway. It's just a quick way to get back to stock with root and amonra recovery if you need to for whatever reason.
    If you flash another ROM follow instructions by the author of that ROM, if your going to install a nandroid of another ROM over it wipe Dalvik cache and all data just to be safe.

    I'm also getting the update script error. I have everything named right. Trying to do this from Velocity 1.1 :(

    Edit: I suck. I was trying to do the flashable zip one and not the recovery. Nevermind, works great.

    Nice, this will make it easier for me to revert to stock from Velocity, if need be.

    1. You aren't trying to flash this over 2.1 are you?

    2. Are you wiping all data and Dalvik cache?

    3. Are You using Backup/Restore Nand Restore in Amonra?

    4. Are you downloading the file and unziping it to your SD card/nandroid/mem=223M Directory?

    5. Do you have at least 500MB free on the SD Card?

    Yeah trying to flash over 2.2.1 . Completely wiped data/dalvik/cache . Nand backup on amonra.. also unzipped into nand.. 1.5 left on sd card.

    Same here, have done it 100 times and still no luck. I have 2 days to get back to stock so Verizon can have it back.

    If your having problems with the Nandroid your probably better off using the guide http://androidforums.com/ally-all-t...-3-2011-3-40-pm-est-now-easier-than-ever.html
    to get back to a stock ROM and just take the OTA updates.
    These Nandroids are offered "As is" with no support, no request for donations, and download bandwidth paid by me.
    They have been tested out have worked for me as well as others, sorry they're not working out for you guys.
    Guitar0zer0, You are using Nand Restore, not Nand backup right?
  21. joshuhwah

    joshuhwah Lurker

    Thanks, I have used that method many many times with no problems at all, but this time the updater keeps hanging at 35% when reading model so that's why I was trying other methods. I think I'm going to put v8 on it since it will boot to Verizon splash screen before restarting again.

    Maybe the file or your sd card is corrupt.

    Nand restore correct.. Sometimes I will even get the sorry you have a recovery log issue. Like I said it will recover then when I reboot I get the blue fastboot screen.

    So when you say rooted and non rooted nandroid roms for the ally, what does that mean? if you flash 1 it will go back to unrooted? and if you flash the other it will stay rooted? what about the performance of one over the other? will you be able to unroot the rooted one if you wanted too? what are the differences?

    There will virtually be zero performance difference between the rooted one and none rooted on as they are stock nandroids. Rooted one would only have the su bin and superuser.apk whereas the non-rooted one wouldn't.

    As i stated above. The only difference the rooted one contains su and superuser.apk to have root whereas the non rooted one is well.. not rooted.
