Using CWM 3 for... managing installs?
How feasible is it to make a Nandroid backup of my current SRF 1.1.0 install, wipe my Epic and install ACE 2.0 to see how it runs (especially with Angry Birds, wherein I've hard locked up a couple of times, and once had to Nandroid backup because of data corruption during crash), then go back to my SRF just using Nandroid backup and restore? I would assume that my Nandroid image will take me back to exactly where I am right now, yes? Nothing lost?
I don't want to use ROM Manager, but I want to definitely try out a journaled Froyo ROM to see if it helps with stability during my obsessive AB marathons...
I looked around and did not see any threads or topics on this matter, and perhaps it's a noob question -so thanks in advance for any advice. :-)

Not 100% positive on this, but fairly certain that the only thing the nandroid doesn't back up is the kernel. So, if you flash a rom with a different kernel, then later restore, you've still got the kernel from the old. Easy solution would then be to reflash the kernel from the old rom (in this case, twilight kernel), or, just reflash SFR AFTER performing the restore (since SFR backs up and restores settings and data).

/boot image (kernel)
/system (apps/system files)
/data (application data)
So when you make a Nandroid Backup with CWM 188.8.131.52 or if your using Bonsai v.4.1.1 (beta) it would be CWM 184.108.40.206 (Bonsai custom version) you will be getting a complete system backup.

1. Make a Nandroid Backup of a good working setup and once backup is completed do a full wipe 3x and restore your backup you just made (this will enable journaling)
2. See this thread, download 2 flashable zip files for use in CWM. One enables journaling, one turns journaling off. Simple enough.
