    So I successfully rooted my hero earlier, my question is this. During the process of rooting it prompts you to make a nandroid, now if I were to restore this nandroid where exactly would that put me?

    Like immediately after gaining root? I was attempting to copy over fresh 2.1.2 I think but I think I messed up so I just wanna go back to before I downloaded it.

    Yes, right after gaining root. The nandroid will return you to where you were before you tried Fresh.

    Okay here's the thing, when I tried to install fresh I actually extracted the contents of the .zip to the root of my sd instead of just moving the whole .zip itself over. Can someone tell me what those files/folders are so I can delete them and get that space back to try again, I wanna say there were 4 or 5 items?

    Here is the list from the ZIP
    Looks like 3 directories and a file.

    Good Luck!

    Make a nandroid of the current setup

    Choose restore from the same menu
    Select the Nandroid you want to go back to. Unless you re-named them, they are named with a date and time, but it is in Greenwich time.

    I have another question about nandroids. I'm running fresh 2.1.2 right now and want to try out another rom. If i do a nandroid now, then wipe and flash a new rom, and find i don't like it, can i just do a nandroid restore and go back to where i was before with fresh? Or do i have to reflash fresh and start all over again?

    If you make a nandroid right now, and restore to that nandroid, it will be exactly what you had right when you made it.

    The nandroid will put you back to exactly where you were when you made it.

    Do you still need to have the .zip files for the Rom your gonna nandroid to on the SD card? I'm asking because I've made a couple but delete the zips when I move on to a new Rom. I think it would still work buy I'm not positive?

    No, you do not have to have the ROM.zip file on your sd card for the nandroid to work.
