    I rooted and themed last night. I made a backup of my ota rooted rom using the rom manager method and also made a back up using the "reboot into recovery" method. ..my question is where do these back ups live? I tried finding them on my sd. Even when using rom manager and i give the backup a specific name i can't find it.

    thanks in advance.

    The backups that you made with the recovery method can be found in the clockworkmod/backup folder on your sdcard.

    hmm...i'm pretty sure i looked there. i seen the backup folder and looked in it. I just wasn't sure if that was the one i had made in the recovery method.

    So where is the one i made with rom manager?

    so when i make a backup using either method it puts it in the same place?

    i'm a backup whore so i'm just trying to make sure i know where they're going. I probably am a little overkill on the backups but whatev lol

    ROM manager is just a GUI to Clockwork recovery. They're made by the same person.

    All your backups are in /clockwork/backup regardless of which made them.
