    Default ◉ First time Rooting : Please check my work...

    Hello :

    I am going to be flashing my droid phone for the first time (nOOb), and I want to make sure I will doing it correctly.

    I have gathered what I believe to be the correct information, and have listed it below.

    I am hoping someone can look at the steps to make sure everything is correct and in order.

    If I am missing something, or if something does not look right, could you please correct, ammend, or add as necessary.

    This would be a tremendous help to me, and I would greatly appreciate it.

    Thank you.

    1. Root phone using SuperOneClick v2.3.3

    A. Install the USB driver for your phone onto your PC
    B. Enable USB debugging mode on phone
    C. Download and install Java SE developers kit
    D. Download and install Android SDK developers kit
    E. Connect phone to computer using USB
    F. Download and install SuperOneClick v2.3.3
    G. Make sure your SD card is NOT mounted
    H. Press "Root"
    I. Wait for "Success" confirmation

    2. Install ClockworkMod Recovery via ROM manager

    A. Download and install ClockworkMod ROM Manager
    B. Once installed, open ROM Manager
    C. Press "Flash ClockworkMod Recovery"
    D. Reboot or Power Off

    3. Perform a Nandroid backup (full system backup)

    A. Make sure you have an install SD card and you have enough free space available on the SD card
    B. Open ROM manager and hit reboot to recovery
    C. A pop up will ask if you want to reboot into recovery, press OK
    D. Phone will reboot and boot into ClockworkMod Recovery
    E. Once in CWR, use volume up and down buttons to scroll up and down the menu list
    F. Scroll down to "backup and restore"
    G. Press "n" button to enter or go to nex sub-menu
    H. Press "backup" to start the nandroid backup process
    I. Once complete, you will be brought back to the main menu and it will read "Backup complete!"
    J. Now scroll up or down to "reboot system now" and press "n" to execute.
    K. Once booted and back to Home screen, open your favorite file browser
    L. Make you way to your SD card: folder /clockworkmod/backup/(date of backup)
    M. Check to see if you have files files: boot image, cache image, date image, nandroid check file, and system image. (note: Usually you will also see a recovery.img (image) file, which is the file that holds the backup for the recovery utility itself. You will see this files with most custom ROM packages.)


    Are the above steps correct? Am I missing anything, or is something incorrect?

    Thank you!
