    Sounds like ROM Manager froze. Press the home button and you might get a prompt to force close or wait for ROM Manager, hit force close, exit out and try it again.

    Flash it again, then retry the backup.

    If it still doesn't work, flash the alternate recovery option in ROM Manager (should say RA_GNM v1.2.4) then boot into recovery and choose the nandroid backup option.

    The first time i tried to reboot into recovery using Rom Manager my phone would get stuck. I fixed it by by flashing "alternate recovery" (within Rom Manager) then flash back to clockwork recovery.

    They are erased when you wipe data before installing a new ROM. Did you back them up?

    You're going to have to reinstall your apps. If you go to the market>menu>downloads, you should see all the apps that you had downloaded previously (and those you may have bought). If you leave and come back (without installing them), they will not be there so I recommend getting your paid apps first

    You need to download the app Titanium Backup from the market, this allows you to backup apps and restore them after you flash a new ROM.

    You can restore your backed up ROM, then backup all of your apps with Titanium Backup and re-flash Velocity. Then you re-download Titanium backup from the market and restore your backed up apps.

    p.s. - Don't forget to hit the 'thanks' button if someone has helped you out. ;)

    Maybe I'm mistaken but isn't that market download history erased when you wipe data?

    I thought Titanium only backed up the information for each app. For example: games - saves your progress

    No, it backs up the entire app. It's how I've always restored apps after flashing a new ROM.

    Under Titanium, choose 'backup all user apps + system data'. This will also backup contacts and call history.

    Just remember: when you restore the apps through Titanium after flashing, restore the apps only, not apps + data.

    You can manually restore your contacts, Titanium will create a list of everything that's backed up.

    I don't know. When I wipe data, if I go in for the first time to the downloads section, all of my apps are there for me to easily install again, but like I said (or meant to say at least), if I leave and come back, they are erased.
