You've helped me with several issues recently and I know one of the last things I had asked you was if there was an "all inclusive thread" that covered this exact issue. I'm glad that there is now and I'm sorry if I'm the one that pushed you over the edge to make it
Thanks for the info though! Thread was what the doctor ordered.

correct me if im wrong but...
i thought u could restore all system data if u were upgrading same rom like BAMF 1.5 to 1.6 or sense to sense based etc..
because according to this tutorial u should basically back up nothing except games like Angry birds....i want my login info restored, app settings, etc..
i have 40+ apps and i think its really annoying to selectively find apps that require data restore..
from what i got out of the tutorial is that u just basically back up to make a list of apps so u can manually install from market...sounds very time consuming and counter productive

In other words... it's like making a restore point on your computer. If something goes wrong or you want to return your phone to a previous condition... you flash/install the nandroid backup and your phones OS is back to the way it was.

Clockwork Recovery, which is the recovery flashed to the phone during Unrevoked the root process, has Nandroid backup built in. ROM Manager also has the ability to use the Clockwork Nandroid process.
Making a Nandroid backup should be part of any modification you make to the phone, and having more then one is never a bad idea beacusel like all backup scenarios, there is a posiablilty of having a bad backup.

Demonstrated on a Thunderbolt... same procedure for the Incredible.

Thanks for the quick response, guys. I do have a question on this Clockwork Recovery thing:
I have a Nook Color (I know.. it's not a Thunderbolt phone, but bear with me for a second) with CM7. It comes by default with ROM Manager and when I launched the app for the first time, I clicked on the "Flash ClockworkMod Recovery" and ROM Manager did what it needed to do so.
The problem is, when the new Nook Color legitimate ROM was made available (a week ago), I could NO LONGER install the legitimate ROM due to the ClockwordMod Recovery installed in the device.
So what I am afraid of is that: if I install ROM Manager in my Thunderbolt to do ROM backup, wouldn't it also cause the same issue such that I will NO LONGER be able to install LEGITIMATE ThunderBolt ROM (as pushed via OTA by Verizon, to say fix some issues)?
More importantly, how do I REMOVE Clockwork Recovery from my Thunderbolt? If I need to send my phone to Verizon for warranty work, I will have to do that.

Ok, I have a question.
Some people that are running Cyanogenmod update their phone with the latest nightly. Nightly come on average one per day. I currently run cyanogenmod on my HD2 and have 102 applications installed on my device. When I plan on getting a real Android phone, I plan on updating my phone with a nightly at least 3 times a week. I read this and reflashed the ROM without using titanium back up and manually installing the apps (from the market since appbrain would not install all the apps back to my phone) and my settings took close to 1.5 hours of non stop clicking (95% of it was install apps). I doubt that those that update their phones with every nightly take 1.5 hours of their day to manually install apps and they probably have close to if not more apps than I do. What is their secret?
