Being new and cautious I did lots of back ups. All I have is the dates. Is there anyway to tell which ROM was running in any one particular backup? In the future I will have to rename the backups as I do them. Is there any problem that I would create by doing that?

Thanks. I still don't know how to tell which ROM is in which backup. All I can see is the file labels. 2011-08-02-20.52.10 If I try to drill down into the backup I can see "system.img" but I can't remember what ROM that contains.

Lemme look into this, I'll get back with you when I figure it out. Although I feel it won't be an easy thing.

Edit: Ok so i finally got to a computer and now my phone is dead. i know os x can open img files nut i dont know how they will appear once you open them. ill try again in the am.

What ya can do is go to the market... Download yaffsexpert.... And you can use that to extract the img file... You'll want to extract system.img then look at the build prop... And that will tell you what it is... That's what I did anyways
edit: oh ya... forgot to mention... All from your phone
