The rooting process unlocks the NAND so you can flash ROMS/Radios/Splash screens and the like.

    A NANDroid backup is a backup of the NAND memory section of the device, it's been "droided" because it's Android and geeks are funny that way!

    Hope this helps!
    I always wondered this. Thanks for the info. You learn something new every day.

    Help Please!

    Im a noob at this but i have succesfully rooted my phone. now i want to flash a new rom (prob CM7) but im having a few issues.

    1st off im pretty sure that Nand is unlocked because unless im mistaken its is unlocked by UnrEVOked 3, correct me if im wrong.

    2nd what is Koush's Clockwork Recovery and where can i get it or how do i work it? Im a little confused on that part.

    3rd when i go to download a rom though rom manager it says i need to download CM Recovery so i try to do it and i select my phone then i get an erroe message that reads "an error occured while flashing your recovery"

    What so i do guys?! i really want the CM7 Rom so i need some help.

    Thanks in advance!!

    ps- i have also downloaded titanium and completed a total backup of apps and system settings.

    Hook your phone up to your computer in Disk mode and make sure your SD card is formatted FAT32. If it's not, copy everything off your SD Card to your computer, format the card so it's FAT32 and copy everything back. Recovery won't upgrade unless your card is FAT32 and ROM Manager needs to install Clockwork for it to work properly.

    Or, you could go manual. Download the ROM you want to your SD Card and boot into recovery by holding down the volume rocker while turning the phone on. This will take you to HBOOT, which will allow you to get to Recovery. You can wipe and reset your data there and then flash your ROM zip as well.

    Hope this helps.

    GPS has been working in CM7 for a while. I use it almost every day.

    I just flashed mine to CyanogenMod 7 RC2. I can't believe I drug my feet this long about doing it.

    It's different, I'll give it that much. Haven't really pounded on it yet, so I'm refraining from calling it "awesome" just yet. Still working on my "like/dislike" list. One huge dislike so far, but I'm searching for it before I ask.

    I like it alot. I've only had the incredible for about 3.5 months, and i only started to flash roms 1-2 months ago, but before cm7 the only rom i stayed on for more than 2-3 days was athena 1.2

    And cm7 is packed with features and minimal at the same time. Which is right up my alley.

    Default Thank you!!

    I am completely new to this, so I was hesitant to root at first but ultimately decided to do so in order to gain access to Wireless Tether. There were moments where I panicked and got terribly nervous, but I just sat back and watched. In the end, it was quick, painless, and worked! Thank you so much for the incredibly clear, straight-forward guide!

    Did uninstall the HTC drivers and then then install the ones listed in the guide to allow your device to be recognized?

    I installed all the ones that were linked to in the guide. Which ones am I supposed to uninstall. I know I don't have HTC Sync is there something else I'm missing?

    Hey guys so I'm a noob and any help would be greatly appreciated.

    So i rooted my Dinc yesterday with no problems using your guidelines and have been trying to flash CM RC2. I used Rom manager and when it installs I get stuck at a screen with the logo that has an arrow circling around it. I then have to do a battery pull and restore my stock rom. I have done this about a half dozen times. Any ideas?

    Also....I flashed a rom called fusion ice and it worked fine but there is no link for the market and it won't let me sync contacts with google. I used the browser to go to the market and dl titanium backup(where I saved all my apps of course) and I installed it but the app was nowhere to be found on my phone. I'm back on my stock rom for now but if this happens with another rom is there something I can do? I installed this rom twice once with ROM manager and once with Clockwork Recovery.

    Once last thing. When I hook my phone to my PC(using windows) I have two SD card files. One is removable storage G (FAT 32) and the other is rem st H (FAT). What's the difference and which one do I want to be my saving my files to?

    Sorry for all the questions guys. I tried to figure things out on my own and it just wasn't working.

    Did you have problems rooting your phone? Like I said I'm stuck with unrEVOked not recognizing my Dinc. Hopefully someone else had this problem and was able to work around it.

    Your sd card might be partitioned? im not sure. if you don't have anhyting important on your sd card, or you back up the files you need, you could reformat the card for fat32.

    to install rc2 you should boot your phone into recover mode, wipe the cache partition, dalvik cash, (and a data wipe if coming from a rom that's not cm7), then choose to install zip from sd card, find the file in rom manager sdcard/clockworkmod/downloads/ (i think), and flash the zip file. you probably also downloaded gapps thru rom manager? so that file should be in that same folder and you can flash that after you flash rc2.

    then reboot the phone and let the cm logo go through it's thing for at least 5 or 10 minutes (bc it takes a while) and you should be straight.
