    I made a nandroid back up right after I rooted my phone. Also made one of my current set up. I want to try out either apeX or rubiX 1.0 so can I just flash my "root only " backup and if I don't like it just flash back to my current set ups back up?

    How it SHOULD work:

    Go into Clockwork, backup and restore, back up, let it go.


    Put ApeX/rubiX on your SD card
    Go into Clockwork
    mounts and storage
    format data
    format cache
    up on menu
    install zip from sd
    select zip from sd
    navigate to apex/rubix

    Then if you decide you dislike it:

    go into Clockwork
    backup and restore
    select backup

    In theory it should work perfectly like that. I had that work for me before I started getting md5 mismatch errors.

    ApeX doesn't need to have the system mounted anymore I don't believe.

    Nandroid backs up all my settings and installed programs right?

    Nandroid backs up three separate things: system, which is settings and pre-installed apps, data, which is downloaded apps and info, and cache.

    You can restore them separately or as a whole thing and get back EXACTLY how you were.

    I have apex on my SD, rom mgr never seems to work right for me, so if I go through clockwork I don't need to mount the system?

    No, no need to mount system.
