Thanks sir!

Another bump.

And I'll continue to do this until this is stickied.

It's straight stupid to not even have ONE stickied thread about the basics...

Can't describe how fantastic this guide is; it should be stickied in both the general and the development section.

If it isn't too much trouble, it would be awesome if you could put the steps to renaming the recovery.sh so the clockwork mod sticks and perhaps to reverse it (if I remember this right).

Actually, I would include that...
But flashing recovery through rom manager works as well.
And I'd rather keep it noob-friendly.
I follow a forum where they said to rename that...and there are like 15 pages of people asking the same questions as to why terminal/adb aren't working.

@Jubakuba You might want to add the link for the recovery image for maguro as well. Your instructions only have toro in there! Beginners may get stuck on that.

Look again, it's there.
Thanks though!

Edit:
Upon checking to make sure I wasn't wrong...
The link should have appeared next to the CDMA for simplicity.
So I updated.
This was initially a RootzWiki CDMA forum post...
Had to be edited for here a bit...and the merged CDMA/GSM forum here makes it a bit hard.
Thanks!

That is a very good guide by the way. Wish I had that when I did my phone but I had a great guy help me out. So I was lucky. Thanks for this!

SDcard backup:
Code:
adb pull /sdcard/ /sdcard/
(This will pull all of your sdcard contents to an "sdcard" folder in your C:\ directory)

Applications and their data:
Take note, that you'll need to be using CyanogenMod's method for setting up ADB to do this. The ADB AIO application installs an older SDK without this functionality. First, get your drivers installed (detailed in post one). Once you get ADB installed (post one), navigate to the C:\android-sdk-windows\platform-tools folder on your computer. Hold shift and right click. Select "Open Command Window Here."

Input this while your phone is turned on and USB Debugging is Enabled in Settings>Developer Settings>USB Debugging.

Type this:
Code:
adb backup -apk -noshared -all -nosystem
(Hit Enter)

Your phone will ask for a password. Input one and remember it.
Once the process completes: continue with unlocking and rooting your phone.

Restoration:
Upon unlocking and rooting your phone: open up ADB again.
Enter this code:
Code:
adb restore backup.ab
(Hit Enter)
Input the password you saved to this file earlier, and wait for the restore to complete.

To restore your SDcard backup, first move the "sdcard" folder that was made in the backup process to your platform-tools folder.
Then run:
Code:
adb push sdcard /sdcard/
