    Just wanted to clarify this. If he did a nandroid backup on his current phone, took it to the Verizon store, and they gave him a new phone, he would only be able to restore the nandroid backup if they put the micro SD card from his previous phone into the new phone. Correct?
    yes and no,,you can copy the clockwork folder onto your computer and put it on any micro SD card,,,,or he can keep his SD card and put it in the new phone

    Ok, just wanted to make sure he is aware just to safeguard against the off chance the Verizon store not giving him his old sd card back.

    great info, but have a question. I have SC 2.6 installed, went to CWM, got blue screen, scrolled down to apply sdcard:update.zip went to install and got this message failed to open /sdcard/update.zip No such file or directory. Any Ideas?

    Yep. If you are going to stay at sc 2.6 and flash any ROMs you need to download this update.zip MEGAUPLOAD - The leading online storage and file delivery service, and place it on the base of your sd card.

    Or if you are not going to flash any new ROMs, you can flash this cwm-all file in this thread through ODIN, then you will boot directly to the current cwm-all

    Or you can upgrade to sc 2.9, and you will boot directly to cwm-all

    Is it booting directly into red recovery?

    I just downloaded the cwm-all file, but it's a bin file, not tar. Is that right? I want to make sure before I use odin to flash it on my phone.

    not to sure about this but my thinking is that the cwm-recovery-all is a tar file that is stored in a .bin folder (recovery.bin). when you double click the cwm file from downloads it takes you to the recovery.bin folder

    maybe someone can shed a little light on this subject and correct this info

    It's a folder called cwm-recovery-all and when I go into it to there's a file called recovery.bin and that's it. Not sure why it's a bin file rather than a tar file.

    ok so you flashed cwm all and when you boot up into recovery its going to blue?

    are you getting errors when you use odin

    does it say (successful 1, failed 0) ?

    when you are flashing with odin are you going directly into recovery or are you turning the phone on first

    also what is the baseband and build of your phone, and what are you trying to accomplish again

    Worked good for me. Flashed back to SC 2.9, then ran red clockwork and installed the 2.9.1 patch and everything seems to be working good. Thanks for the help.
