Thanks for the reply. I understand that backing up after going to a new ROM is counterproductive, what I'm not fully understanding, and it could have been that I might have just not asked my question right, is will a nandroid back up put back all of my data or will I need to use something like Titanium Backup to do that afterwords?
Thanks for the help!
Yes a nandroid backs up all data. For managing app data I would use Titanium or MyBackup since you can backup any new changes you make overtime.... where as a nandroid is just a set backup of what you have at that moment. Backing up your ROM is like a restore point on a computer, you reload that and your phone is back to the way it was at that point. Titanium allows you to back up your apps and reinstall all backups/app data/ or just some. Whatever your preference.

First off, thank you for putting up this post on how to install roms.
Total noob here. Just rooted my phone a couple of days ago and thanks to this post I was able to install my first rom. I see that there is an update to the rom (1.6 ---> 1.6.2). How do I go about installing the new update?
Also, I backed up my apps using Titanium backup. If I want to restore my apps, if I select all, will it install all apps INCLUDING the bloatware that was backed up?

I can't boot up after installing a new ROM. It freezes on the HTC screen, and after about 10 seconds of being on the HTC screen, it vibrates, then reboots. It repeats this process until I pull the battery, then I have to boot into recovery and restore a back-up.
If it still doesn't load:
You may have a bad download of the rom. Re-download the zip after deleting the old one, to re-flash. Perform all three wipes (data, dalvik and cache), but first make certain your battery is highly charged (over 50%).
EDIT: is your phone stuck when trying to boot into Clockwork or after installing a new rom?

Quick question...first time installing a custom ROM (BAMF remix). I have the free version of ROM manager and when I searched it for ROMS, it didn't have the latest BAMF remix...so I downloaded the latest remix via my computer and then saved it over to my TB via USB.
It was downloaded and saved as "BAMF-Remix-v1.6.3.zip.crdownload"
I am assuming I have to rename this to "BAMF-Remix-v1.6.3.zip" (i.e. remove the ".crdownload") and then flash it. Is this correct? Thanks.

It's stuck when I try to reboot into recovery. I haven't done anything with ROMs yet. So far the only thing I've done is flashed ClockworkMod Recovery and then tried to reboot into recovery, which is where it hangs. I let it go for at least 15 minutes and nothing...
You installed Clockwork recovery in the very first few steps correct? You can also try repeating those steps again. It sounds like either clockwork was never installed or something went wrong during the installation. You can check if you have it by manually booting into recovery. Power off the phone... When the phone is off... Hold down the volume down button and the power on button at the same time until the phone boots up. It should boot you into hboot/bootloader... Select recovery and that should take you into clockworkmod the same way rom manager does. If it doesn't... You don't have clockworkmod installed correctly. Then try re-installing rom manager again.

Did I miss anything? If not, I'll try manually booting into recovery in a bit. Thanks.

Try flashing the new rom again... Make sure you wipe data, cache partition and dalvik cache. Follow the guide and you should have no problems. Make sure you leave the downloaded roms zip file zipped. Let the phone install the new rom. It may pause for a while on the htc screen for about 5 minutes... Don't do anything... Let the new rom load up.
