    since you are temp rooted, when you reboot your shift it loses root and you will not be able to access recovery. so... you can not create a nand backup

    I've moved your post back to the Evo Shift section.

    Check this forum, maybe some of Enraged21's posts - or 330D's or the MANY other helpful posters on how to get perm root so you can move on to clockwork.

    Yeah, people are likely at work.

    The first - what - 6 threads besides this one in this section deal with perm root.

    Did you try the one-click root method that Engadget21 mentioned, for example?

    Rom vs. kernel explanations - http://androidforums.com/evo-4g-all-things-root/129648-quick-intro-rooting-those-new-rooting.html

    RULE 1 of rooting - read, read, read - be familiar with terms and what you're going into before starting - do not just press buttons.

    RULE 2 of rooting - get comfortable, be patient. For some, rooting goes quick, for others it takes longer. There's no explaining that - that's just the way it is. If you're not patient when rooting and you hit the takes-longer path, then you're likely to get frustrated and mess something up.

    You can always PM me for any help.
    All the information EarlyMon has posted with the links above should be enough.
    Like he said, all you have to do is read read read.

    They are all right, When I decided to root mine, it took me 3 weeks to get myself up to doing it.
    1. I didnt know what I was doing, so I read read read
    2. I was worrying about bricking a $400 phone lol so I read read read
    3. I didnt see what the big deal was all about "rooting?" now I see what Ive been missing.
    4. Thanks to all the people on here that post great info and are willing to help others.

    I like the way they give absolutely no credit to the original developer of Shiftrr.

    Around here - we HATE that!

    If any links like that come up here, not properly attributing the great folks making it all happen - please PM me or hit the !Report button on the post, and maybe say FAO EarlyMon (fao=for attention of) in the report.

    I promise to work to get the right links in place - with thanks in advance for anyone helping this way. Also ok in cases like this to post the right link and tell the other guy to "kindly take that link down, it's not the official one."

    And gang - if a dev has his own site, or a page here or at XDA - no linking to just his download portal. Link to the dev, PLEASE!

    The root community devs don't charge outright for their mega-hard work, but they do accept donations, and some of that goes to keeping download site accounts open. So - they should get their due, in thanks and any donations (if your wallet won't open, at least open your heart).

    It's the right thing to do, your dog will love you more and the cat will purr that much louder. (And, yes, there's incontrovertible proof of that - try it.)

    Cheers, thanks a lot! ;)

    No worries.. I was referring more to the video not giving any credit to the dev. If you read his post over at xda he ask not to mirror his program. Just commenting :)
