Root My 1st root. Samsung Admire Newb with questions.

Just rooted my 1st Android with the 1 click root. Everything so far is great. I have titanium backup, superuser, setcpu, apps2sd, quickboot, juice defender, SDmaid, and autokiller. All great tools that have made this little average phone fly!. I can not however figure out how to do a nandroid backup on this device. I bricked one before with rom manager. so I am weary about getting that again. However I only bricked when I chose a device on the list that wasnt mine. Like I said I am very new and not completely savvy in this stuff. I just want to backup my current state before messing around further with roms. There is no backup choice in my recovery screen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Love these forums too!
Welcome aboard ^_^ always glad to see a new face. The reason why you do not see a backup/restore option to create the nandroid is because you have not installed a custom recovery. Our phone has Clockwork Mod Recovery or CWM for short. Sorry that I cannot link you to threads due to using a mobile device, but search around for the odin thread that installs cwm onto your phone. It requires a PC to install by the way.
