once you have flashed recovery with either Amon ra's or clockwork mod, when you boot into recovery (with phone off, press power on whilst pressing vol down), you will see a different recovery screen, with an option to backup/restore. if you scroll down to that option using trackball, then press trackball to select, it will take you to nandroid backup page. choose first option, which i think just says 'backup'.now its a bit clear, one more thing what nandroid backup? which you were refering to
what this does is it backs up EVERYTHING on your phone EXACTLY as you have it at the moment, so if you experience problems trying to flash new rom's, you can easily go back to the way things were by going into recovery and choosing nandroid restore.
i have the try 4. Rooting with Superboot
4a. on your N1 go to Settings>About Phone>Build number.
4b. Go to superboot and download the version for the ERE number that matches your build number from step 4a. Extract the superboot folder out of the .zip folder. You can put this folder directly on your desktop if you like.
4c. Reboot the N1 into bootloader mode, refer to step 3c.
4d. Double click the install-superboot-windows.bat file. A command prompt should flash and that's it, now your rooted!
everything seems okay but is not happening.....i get a confirm sign that my phone rooted but now what im lost now
i need help
Did you install rom manager? if so, did you flash recovery using rom manager?
try loading rom manager again and scrolling down to where it says 'use alternate recovery'. this will flash the Amon -RA recovery, which worked for me.
by the way, you get nandroid backup option when you flash recovery, that is what you are trying to do at the mo.
Glad to be of help my friend...
it may be a harder process than iphone, but it makes the reward taste sooooo much sweeter! enjoy your rooted phone.
I'm not sure what you mean. Once you have done a nandroid backup, you should be free to then flash the cyanogens Rom from your recovery.
