    I was thinking of flashing a kernel tonight, and was wondering if a nandroid restore will restore the kernel?

    Also, I was wondering if anyone would know the solution to why I couldn't adb into my phone. Wanted to push a file and used...

    Code (Text):
    1. adb push widget.txt /system/customize/widget.txt
    and got a response saying basically that file system is read only. Any hints would be great; figured I'd ask here while I have a thread being made.

    -Thanks

    Yes nandroids backup and restore kernels. A Nandroid restore will restore your to exactly how it was when you made the backup. Sorry I don't use adb so I can't help with that.

    You need to type:

    adb remount
    adb push widget.txt /system/customize/
    adb reboot

    If that doesn't work, let me know, and I'll give you some more complicated commands that *will* work.

    Thanks a lot akazabam, that worked like a charm.

    If a kernel isn't working properly with my phone would a symptom be 'tearing' of the launcher/dock while switching homescreens? That's what happened to me this afternoon. Just restored to the previous backup.


    Here is something I was just wondering now, if I rename a Nandroid backup folder from Amon-Ra (ie: BCDRS-20110303-xxxx) to say BCDRS-20110303-xxxx-mynWarm22 will it still work? Would changing the folder name of an Amon Ra backup have a negative effect on the restore procedure?


    Anyway, thanks again.

    That works good. As long as you don't put in spaces or odd characters it will be fine. I have done alot of my backups like that so I know what they are.

    Yep, that should work just fine. The good thing about doing it that way is if it doesn't work for some reason, just remove the part you added to the name.

    EDIT: Oh yeah, and as for screen tearing, which kernel are you using? That's most commonly caused by HAVS.

    Cool cool. Thanks I'll be doing that now. I was making a spreadsheet so it should be pretty easy from here on.
