So i have BBM i flashed a new rom yesterday and today i log back into the app with the same email and password. I clicked on Switch Devices button, and next thing you know im slapped with a new pin, it shows my contacts but somehow they arent my friends technically because i send them a message and it shows a little square with a check mark, instead of the D logo. I also lost admin privileges to my group that i had going on. Does anybody know a fix for this?!

It sounds like they linked your PIN to your Android id. If that is the case, you would need to go back to your previous nandroid and backup your Android id using titanium backup, reflash the new rom and then restore the messenger data.

Nandroid changes each time you change rom?

If that was the case our unique identifier for Google never changes. Its a static number like a MAC address. I'm sure BBM must use the same thing. Must be in their way of how they implemented it.

My understanding is that the Android id changes every time you wipe the data partition. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2109484

Hmm there was one that gets tied to your Google Account and your phone and it wasn't changeable. But thanks for this gonna play around with it and see what it does.
