    Hi folks.

    So, I recently installed UD 3.1.2. I like it, except for video not working. Thus, I want to try Phiremod 5.1.

    A couple questions:

    1. since they are both gingerbread versions, do I need to completely wipe the Nook in order to try Phiremod, or could I somehow install "on top" of the existing ROM?
    2. how do I make a complete backup of the current Nook, so I could easily go back to it if I prefer UD over Phiremod?

    Thanks!

    CWR will back the entire thing up. Wipe your caches first, to avoid wasting space on the card. To back up my v5.1, I boot from my CWR card, go to "Backup and Restore", then Backup.. It puts the backup on your bootable card, so you're ready to reinstall as soon as it boots.

    You should also run a Titanium Backup. This will make is really easy to put back any specific apps and data you want on your new ROM.

    The CWR backup of my 5.1 brings everything back, apps included.. I have a UD 3.1.2 on there too, and I know if I restore it, everything will be there.

    What is the best way to wipe all the cache from every app on the Nook? Is there a feature on Titanium that simply wipes all?

    A few options:
    1. A app called Cache Cleaner, free on the market
    2. Best more complete way: Use CWM recovery, wipe cache & wipe dalvik cache

    ...and no, titanium backup can only wipe dalvik cache one app at a time... I believe.

    CWR will do it.. Just leave system and data (and boot, for the love of God don't touch boot!) alone.. Wipre cache and Dalvik cache.
