If you need to get back to stock there is a process for it...
You can read about it here:
[HOWTO] Return to stock properly and safely. - xda-developers
You should make a backup of whatever you are using now, if it's working properly, anyway, just to have something safe to return to should you need it.
BTW if you let rom manager name the backup, it's just numbers and periods and it will be in your sd card > rom manager folder somewhere

Do you think you can help with installing roms i tried one and now i have to root again, almost done though. And the roms on rom manager are not showing up when i click on a developer. I like stock but I would like the battery % to show where the battery is. like this one does http://forum.androidcentral.com/thun...re-update.html

Thanks bro. I re rooted. What happen was i went to install the rom and it said the rom fail or something like that. From there I got lost I had no idea what to do. I thought it was bricked but it just went to reboot by itself and it was like out of the box. No root or anything. So I rooted again and tried to rom but I did a nanadroid backup this time just incase. but everything went well. Thanks.

Ok, this is a total newbie question regarding ROMs. I rooted my TB last night, re-installed my apps, and configured most of my settings to how they were prior to rooting.
Now, I'd like to start playing with different ROMs and was wondering when a new ROM is installed, must I re-install all my apps again? Or, are the apps in a protected location away from the ROM?
Thanks for a great forum!
p.s. Perhaps in hindsight, should I have installed the new ROM first, followed by app installation?
Edit: that's one thing you can do, before you setup the phone back to the way it was... Flash between different roms(wiping the data and caches)until you find one you like. Performance wise it would take some time using the phone to see if you like it but just to check out the look of the roms... this would be good to do.

So I got my TB rooted and getting ready to flash a ROM. I used Titanium Backup to back up just my stock rooted TB. But should I grab all the apps I want right now, apps like root explorer, dolphin browser and install them, do another backup so they will already be installed? Or can you access Android Market with a custom ROM installed? I read in the BAMF Remix 1.5 (gonna use this ROM) thread they were having problems downloading apps. They mention Black Market but not a lot was said. Thanks.

Titanium should mainly be used to backup your apps and their data. A nandroid backup in recovery should be made to backup your current system data if anything goes wrong and you want to revert back.
I would install all the apps you want and then back them up in Titanium. (Don't backup system data.) Then make your nandroid backup of your current state in recovery.
Flash BAMF, and then restore your apps with Titanium

Loosing 4G and 3g network
I rooted my phone last week and then followed the instructions for doing a nandroid backup, after that I installed VirusRom but wasn't too thrilled about it and went and did wipe data, cache and darvik cache as well. After doing all this I did restore from my original back up which I had but now I am not getting 4G or 3G on my phone, its stuck on 1x. Any suggestions? Appreciate all the help on this forum.

Can anyone tell me in what order are the back ups listed? I understand they are by date but what looks like a time after the date does not seem correct to the time when I did them and I did 2 back ups the same day. So is it new to old or old to new. I want to rename them now so I can keep organized.

Just some noob questions about nandroid backups:
Does restoring also restore all apps and app & user data as they were when the nandroid was made? In other words, if I make a nandroid now and choose to back up after flashing a ROM, will I get my games, saved game locations, emails, contacts, text messages, etc. after restoring?
If I wanted to rename a nandroid, where do I go looking for it?
Thanks for the help.
