    Install aborted. Says Error class 7
    I keep forgetting... my carrier is i-wireless, not Boost Mobile. Is the rom specific for carrier?

    This is for sprint only. If you upload a stock backup I will make one for your carrier.

    edit: updated the OP to reflect it is for Sprint. Sorry for the confusion.

    LOL... I love that you removed all the sprint bloatware for your sprint phone :D
    I-wireless is on sprint system so most sprint bloatware is on my phone too.

    I'm a n00b. Would I use root explorer to find stock backup or is it done another way? My SD card died in the middle of everything. Gotta go out & get a new one :d

    I would appreciate it if you have time to make a i-wireless variant. Please post on how to get the stock backup for you

    If you haven't modified your system directory since you got the phone (other than rooting), you can just upload 2 files from your cwm backup. You will find the cwm backup on your sdcard in /clockworkmod/backup/name-of-backup

    Go in the backup directory and grab system.ext4.tar.a and boot.img. That should be all I need.

    Lots easier than I thought! And harder too... can't upload system.ext4.tar.a because it's 469MB. I'm PM'ing you about cloud transfer or something

    If you can put it on drive, dropbox, or similar just long enough for me to grab it that would be great.

    Appreciate all the hard work you are doing. I hope Jellybean is not that far away. Seems ZTE and Sprint could care less about this phone anymore.

    You could try out an app i love to restore settings to your device. It is called Nandroid Manager. It restores sms, call logs, apps, and app data from a nandroid (cwm recovery) backup.

    Just wow! What a great set of features! :cool:
    Installed it & am excited to start trying it out. Do you even use TB while you have this app?

    I do not use TB at all. I find it to be repetitive and unnecessary since we already make backups in cwm. TB just creates more files on your sdcard.

    Ah... I thought TB was a good way to keep apps & data after installing a new rom or doing a factory reset. Maybe there are other ways-- I don't have enough experience, but till you told us about this app, I thought nandroid would only allow recovery of a complete image instead of the choice to restore selected parts of the image

    There is nothing wrong with TB, if you like it you should use it. I was just offering my favorite method :)
