    Question Using nandroid backups to flip between roms

    Is this an OK thing to do? To be exact, I have nandroid backups of both APEX2.0 and Liquid 3.0.
    Will there be some problem using the backups to flip between the two?
    When I do a restore, do I need to wipe data/cache/bat?

    thanks

    Yes you'll be fine doing so. No need to wipe anything.

    You just can't restore a Froyo ROM on Gingerbread or vice versa.

    on the move..

    Nothing will be wrong as long as you wipe before you restore it.
    There is also this great app in the market called bootmanager, it allows you to switch between roms with a click of a button. Its $3 but so worth the money.

    rc 3 is based off of the 602 ota and rc 4 is based off the 605 ota...

    which the only real difference between the ota's is pretty much a keyboard fix...

    OK, so there is no reason for me to get the rc4 then, since I use thumb keyboard. Is there any other roms where I can use backups as a means of switching?
