    Back when I rooted it took about 20 min. or so.. Cm7 is probably your best bet for gingerbread, tho there are quite a few out there

    Can you use the Cm7 if you flashed using the unrevoked 3 ? or do you have to use the forever one?

    You can use CM7 using unrevoked 3.

    I am pretty sure I have the rooting process down with unrevoked 3, that's pretty strait forward. Its after that I know I rom manager to flash roms. But what do I do to back things up right after the root. I hear a lot of apps throw around like Nandroid, and titaium back up.

    This ASOP rom is pure just like a Nexus S? And can I get it from the Rom manager?

    Well, the nexus S doesn't have as much as Cyanogen does. He added a lot of things to the ROM, but it's still plain vanilla Android. You can get it from Rom Manager.

    OK, what's the best backup method after root.
    03-27-2011 05:27 PM
  12. Yourdogsdead's Avatar
    For individual apps, Titanium backup. I would recommend you buy it so you can do a batch restore.

    For the entire ROM (Do this before flashing a new one), NANDROID.

    Ok, its just what I should do before I start flashing roms after a root that has me questioning it.

    Install custom recovery (Clockwork or Amon RA)
    -Done through ROM Manager




    Download ROM of choice. Make sure Google Apps is checked



    Install ROM (Download through ROM manager or Install ROM from SD Card)
    Make sure that the Backup and Wipe are checked.

    So I can use that to back up even the stock EVO Rom? I'm sorry for asking so many questions I just want to be sure. I haven't modded anything since my Palm Pre.
    03-27-2011 06:40 PM
  16. Yourdogsdead's Avatar
    Yes, It just copies the NAND of the Evo to the SD card. So everything is saved. Including apps.

    To install clockwork recovery I just tap Flash ClockworkMod recovery? And one last question a when you do a backup whats included? Is it just a Snap shot of your currents setup?

    Is this it well except on the EVO the bootloader screen it white. From there I should be able to restore and backup or through the Rom manager App. Then to install roms I just use the app and pick one I like? Is it really this easy?
    03-28-2011 08:04 PM
  20. Yourdogsdead's Avatar
    Yeah, it will then flash Clockwork
    Nandroid backups everything in your NAND. Apps, settings, texts. Basically just like you have your phone now.
    You can install ROMs through Clockwork as well, but doing it through ROM Manager is easier
    Yes, it is this easy.

    Well I don't need to backup everything I use my back pro for text's,apps,settings. But clockwork will just wipe and restore to the current rom that was backed up but with a clean device right? One last thing I noticed that in the video to access the full list of roms you have to have the paid version. Is it worth it?

    It is recommended that you do a Nandroid backup before flashing a ROM. That way of something goes wrong, you can just flash that back.

    A program like My Backup Pro would be for restoring apps once you have flashed a new ROM.

    They are two different kinds of Backups, you should do both.

    You don't have to, it makes the process a lot easier to use ROM Manager to download them. You can download them on a PC, and transfer them over via USB. It will work that way. I just purchased it because I used to flash a lot of ROMs.

    I can choose any rom zip from lets say xda and move it to the root of the SD and then use Rom manager to install from SD

    Thanks I think I have the base of it. Thank you for you time and paticence.

    I don't think I want to try any Rom for now, but would like to get rid of the bloat. I read in another forum that you can't do that using unrevoked3. Is that true?
    03-29-2011 04:56 PM
  25. Yourdogsdead's Avatar
    I don't really know since I never tried to remove the bloat ware. My phone was stock for 10 minutes tops (Time it took me to drive home with it). If I had to guess, as long as unrevoked is a permanent root then there shouldn't be a problem. I wouldn't know what to do though.


    I did however find this thread that could help you out. It seems that the only requirement is that you have root access.
