    What happens in a nandroid?

    I was running Eclipse. Wanted to try cm7.2 so sbf'd back to 2.3.4 & flashed it after making a nandroid back-up. If I want to go back to Eclipse, can I just use the nandroid? Will it also return the phone to 2.3.5 & remain rooted?

    Nandroid backs up everything, system, data, apps, like taking a pic of the whole phone. If you restore the nandroid, you will be right back where you were when you backed it up (like you never left to something else)

    nandroids should be flashed on same kernel, they are made on
    moto phones with locked bootloaders do not use a complete cwm recovery
    and the kernel can not be restored
