nofam:Neets:wazz:My next question is, can I find the CWM backup using Root Explorer, and copy it somewhere so I can view it from my PC and copy it right off the phone (or at least to the external sdcard)
For me at least the backup was stored on the internal sdcard under Clockworkmod\backup. You can copy it using root explorer or just plug in the usb and grab it off in windows. I got a copys on my sdcard and HDD.
Yep, it's as easy as that :)
Thanks Wazz/Neets - we like easy! :-D
Next question - just reading the pre-requisites for Doc Kalpik, and it talks about having the 2e recovery. . . .I've read the faq, but I'm still not too sure what this is?
I'm pretty sure you've got it. If I recall you're still on Eclair. Eclair has it as standard. If you use the 3 button method to go to recovery (volume UP) you'll see the words 2e in the top line on the screen. You need this in order to accept an update.zip file (it's to do with how zip files are signed as I understand).
Once you're in recovery, if just to check if it's got 2e, then just select reboot phone (first option in the list) and it will boot back up.
