    Long time lurker, finally got around to rooting my Eris. I understand that with Nandroid backups, you can wipe and flash to any of the ROMs you've ever had as long as you made a Nandroid backup of it in the first place. How well do the settings in your apps hold up to this? My primary concern is wanting to be able to have a Blizzard Mobile Authenticator app on my phone, which occasionally syncs with some server somewhere to generate a random 8-digit code that I use to log into battle.net accounts. If I were to have it on say a KaosFroYo rom and made a Nandroid backup, then flashed an EvilEris ROM or w/e the case may be, would it still work if I flashed back or would I have to remove the authenticator each time I flash?

    I know this isn't Blizzard tech support, but I doubt I'd get much help from them, since I don't think they would officially support reflashing and all that, so hopefully someone here has an idea of whether this would work or not.

    I don't know if this answers your question but it basically makes an image of your rom, like Ghost for the computer. When you flash back to it the rom is in the exact same state as it was when you took the backup. If you made the backup 10 days ago and flash back to it all the settings will be the same as they were 10 days ago.

    Excellent. If that is all it does, then it would be no different than if I turned for off my phone
