    if i make a nand backup of aloysius snow with a2sd, copying that nand to computer, wiping data/dalvik/ext, repartitioning sd, and flashing another rom. say that rom is not what i want, and want to go back to aloysius. if i restore that nand, will that restore my phone back to just like it was with aloysius?

    You will need to make a nand + ext backup if you are running a2sd on aloysius. As long as you are not removing the ext partition from your sd card you will be able to flash back to aloysius with no problems. Why are you wanting to move the nand to a computer tho? are you planning on wiping the whole sd card? If so, that will not affect your ext partition.
