    Thanks Cyber for your contribution. I read AC all the time at work, but for some reason it blocks the photo hosting site you are using so I didn't really know how to go into recovery and create a Nandroid backup. But I took the plunge and poked around on my own and figured it out. Feels good.

    Newbie questions... please bear with me?

    When you root your TB and use this guide to install a new ROM, are you left with a phone with none of the apps you installed with the stock ROM? Contacts, email, etc. all gone?

    I'm assuming this is the case. Now, does this happen EVERY time you install a new ROM, or just the first time?

    That is correct, major. The good thing is that all my apps re-downloaded from the market, and once you are rooted you can use Titanium backup to back up your apps going forward. Don't know if there is a better way, but you can use you verizonwireless webpage account to back up you contacts. Also, your SD card will be the way it was. If you clear the way that is recommended you will have to do everything it each time you install a new rom, but I've only done it once and I'd imagine the more you do it you will learn tips and tricks that make it easier and faster each time.

    Are you installing with rom manager thru the app or with clockwork recovery?

    When installing the rom with clockworkmod recovery you can place the file anywhere on the sd card as long as you know where it is and navigate to it after selecting "choose zip from sd card"

    If you install thru rom manager app you need to download the rom thru rom manager first, and it will automatically know where it is that way

    If using clockwork recovery the easiest place to put the file is the root of your sd card.

    Did you wipe cache partition, dalvik cache, and full data wipe before you flashed the rom?

    What rom was it?

    What you need to do now is pull the battery out, wait a minute, put it back in, reboot into hboot (volume down plus power button), select recovery with volume keys, press power, then when it boots into recovery, navigate to backup and restore, select by pressing home key, select restore, and select your back up and press home key, then reboot.

    this will get you back to your backup and things will be ok, and you can try to flash the rom again after that but make sure you wipe those things first or it will not work properly.

    As Zero Neck mentioned the file can be placed anywhere as long as you know where its located. Its recommended to keep them on the root of the SD Card. I keep them in my download folder and never had any problems. So when booting into recovery.. I would navigate to >install from sd card > downloads > rom xxxx.zip. As for your question on where the root of the SD Card is... Its the main folder when you first open the SD Card... all the other folders after that are sub folders (android, data, downloads, media, my documents, etc...). You would place the zip file by itself with the rest of your sub folders.

    Ok this helps a lot. I installed lighting rom v3.2 but for some resin I can't find the back up. I saw it do it .. Any ideas? If not should I just wipe user data and start over?

    If you made a backup with rom manager, you can restore the backup thru rom manager app or you can boot into recovery mode and go to backup and restore>restore>rom manager>find the file you named the backup

    Now that you have a rom flashed and it's working, you could just make a new back up thru rom manager or in recovery mode
