    If I do NAND backups do I still need to use Titanium for anything? I guess I'm confused about why I would use Titanium when I do NAND backups. Is it easier to restore apps with Titanium when going from ROM to ROM?

    A nand is a complete image of your phone. If you do a nand, it restores all of your apps, and data.

    The only time you would need to use titnaium is if you changed something after a nand, such as installed some new apps. Then you would restore them after your restore your nand.

    Nand will overight your ROM. It doenst just put the apps back, it completely restores your phone to the way it was when you made the NAND.

    Nand is a complete image of your current rom...

    Titanium can be used lets say when you want to switch over to another custom rom

    then you can restore all your apps and set it up like your old rom

    For example, you want to completely switch over from Fresh Rom to Baked Snack Rom.
    Then you would use Titanium Backup, as it backs up all your apps + data. You flash baked snack, and use titanium backup to restore all your apps and data.

    Let's just say you want to TRY out Baked Snack. You would use nand to keep an image of your phone when you're switching from Fresh to Baked Snack.
    Your apps won't transfer this way, but here you can see whether or not you like Baked Snack. So if you don't like it, you nand restore your Fresh Rom, and bam! Everything's back to the way you left it.

    Generally though, people do both because either situation could occur.

    Your NAND should be on the root of your SD card. If you're using clockwork 3.0 recovery, just boot into recovery and use the volume keys to navigate doew to where it says "Backup and Restore." Use the power key to select that and it takes you to another screen where you can either backup or restore as you see fit.
