In any case, good luck!
That should work.
I am curious though, are these backups you are copying over needed?
The reason I ask, is that my worry in the back of my mind , is that what if some error has crept in during all the copying of files or what if the problem with the previous sd card corrupted the recovery you are copying.
Why not just put the new sd card in, and then make new backups from within rom mananger or from recovery with with amon_ra or cwm, depending on what you are using?
Well it's cause the backups aren't necessary I can delete them all it doesn't matter, that's not my problem cause I can flash them on the old card (as I actually did) but the problem is that I can make backups on the new SD card I just can't restore them. the backup will be made and it will save ok I can even flash them with the old SD but not with the new one.
What rom are you running?
How did you reformat sdcard
Give my last post a try
Get Quick Boot from Market and use it to boot into Recovery--don't use Rom Mgr this time around
BackUp SD Card to PC
Flash fresh Amon_Ra 2.2.1 from this link: [Recovery] [07-Jan-2011] RA-passion-v2.2.1 - xda-developers (under Downloads halfway down page) thru Terminal Emulator
Put Amon_Ra on root of SD Card
In terminal type:
flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery-RA-nexus-v2.1.1.img
Reformat with sdformatter outside the phone--full format on--erase on
Partition with Amon_Ra 1gb 0 swap--then select ext2 to ext3
Copy contents back to SD Card from PC
Flash a fresh rom after wiping ALL 5X
Flash DT 126.96.36.199 or 188.8.131.52-1 from here: [Script][A2SD]Darktremor 184.108.40.206 Beta 04 [N1] (01/29/2011) - xda-developers if you don't have 220.127.116.11 already on SD Card
Do this right after flashing rom--if the rom you use uses DT and not already built in
You don't have to set all of rom up--just basics and maybe a reboot to set spacing and DT stuff
Then do a backup using Quick Boot and Amon-Ra--then restore with QB and Amon
Hope I didn't miss anything--You know these steps as well as I do--I know this is basic stuff--but you just may need a complete, clean slate. I have done this a couple times when things seemed to get out of wack--so to speak.
BTW: I remember something about removing this with Root Explorer before installing new recovery--/system/etc/install-recovery.sh--not up much on that type of techy stuff
If it works you can then set up the rom the rest of the way.
Sorry if you have done this already--but, I am also at a loss for ideas

Try making a backup without the ext partition, and see if you can restore it... (just curious)
Ok well I had sort of forgot about this my bad
But anyway the thing is that I hadn't partition the SD card in the first place so it can't be the partition messing things up I had formated the SD card and there was still this issue so I think it just might be the SD card that is messed up.
Now I wanted to try and flash Amon-RA from the terminal app but it didn't flash it gave me an error (possibly because of my card??) so now I'm lost again on what I should do but I don't think Amon-RA is the problem because don't forget it works with my other card.
Well you know what guys we got it.
I was browsing around and I stumbled up on this thread http://www.nexusoneforum.net/forum/n...-thru-yet.html and I saw where ken posted a link to an SD card formatter so I thought about this and said you know that might work so i downloaded it backed up my SD card did the format, put it in my booted into recovery then went to "move recovery log to SD card" and bam move successful. So now I have my SD card working again so I made a nandroid made a titanium backup and backed up my SD card to PC.
Now I want to flash darktremor and partition my SD card (not necessarily in that order now my question is I have a cm6.1.1 and I already flashed wildmonks kernel and FOTAkill and when you flash darktremor it's supposed to be right when you flash the ROM (well that is what everybody keeps saying at least) so does it mater if I just flash it now and like I said I have a nandroid so if all goes bad I can just restore but just want to know if it's a sure thing that all will go bad or not
Thanks for the advice everybody and a special thanks to ken from finding the key thing to solve my problem
