    It restored every thing that came stock with it, however you had it setup in blur.
    All phone settings back to stock, anything added (apps) or phone settings are gone.

    Hi, please give me adivce here: I have the same problem as you - trying to flash with RSD 4.5.7 and getting "failed flashing process" and switching between RSD versions is not helping. Please, tell me how you did it! Thank you!

    Try upgrading RSDLite to 4.8

    If it is an sbf file, then yes, but if you just have an update.zip or rom.zip then I dont think so.

    What's the process for creating an .sbf file (after cracking root that is) ? This is my first time into root territory and I want to make backups of everything. (and no, I'm not wiping my phone just to install a backup program, until I've backed up my phone)

    Can I do a "cp /dev/someDev /sdcard/backup.sbf.gz" or something?

    No, you cannot. In order to do a proper backup, you need root access. Then install a custom recovery image (there are currently 2 I know of, j_r0dd's recovery and a Clockwork recovery is now available as well) and perform a Nandroid backup. There are paid apps available that do not require root, but can only backup a small portion of information as without root access you do not have access to the /data/ folder where all of your apps and data are stored.

    Umm, ok. I did find and follow the instructions here and got a recovery.img, root.img, and system.img file. I'm guessing that at least a couple of these can be used to restore my phone as long as it is still working, but they're not in the expected file format for RSD to flash to a dead phone...

    Correct. RSDLite expects an SBF package. Unless you're using Linux, you won't be able to compile a new image though.

    I'm reading your posts and I'm not exactly sure I get what you're trying to do... normal users, and even power users don't ever need to make SBF images. Normal users just have to install the recovery.img that j_rodd or clockwork puts out, and make a nandroid backup FROM the recovery.
