Phone updates ... PRL updates ... Sprint VoiceMail updates
My Evo is rooted with U3 and U4Ever, I've installed Ra Recovery, and I'm running CM6 and pulling a nightly every couple of days.
I don't know how to handle phone updates ... PRL updates ... Sprint VoiceMail updates ... etc
With my dangerous newbie knowledge the process looks like this ...
1> Titanium backup
2> Nandroid backup
4> Load the rooted 2.2 stock rom
5> Run the desired updates
6> Nandroid restore
7> Titanium restore
Is there an easier way? Or if not have I missed anything in my process?
Thank you so much --

Re: Phone updates ... PRL updates ... Sprint VoiceMail updates
I thought the basic nand backup didn't capture apps and data? ...or if I'm mistaken, does it capture apps and data from the card, also?
nand+ext doesn't work on my phone....I need to learn more about why that's so.

no, your sd card never gets deleted with installing roms as far as im led to believe, I just do a nandroid backup, wipe everything (except sd card), and flash the rom i want. But usually when you flash an update to a rom you dont have to wipe. Such as cm6 to cm6 nightly. Hope this helps.

and to answer your second question, it's because you don't have your SD card partitioned for apps2sd

Thanks for all the help! I appreciate it.
So, then, to update the phone and PRLs I do this ...
1> Nandroid backup
3> Load the rooted 2.2 stock rom
4> Run the desired updates
5> Nandroid restore
Monday evening, I flashed the CM6 nightly and then learned about the Sprint VVM .ZIP. I installed VVM and all was well, until I found out that the nightly had killed screen rotation. So I flashed back to the previous nightly...and promptly lost Sprint VVM. I had to reinstall it. Did I eff up or is this expected behavior?
