comment How to delete backups made using Clockworkmod?
This answer is actually somewhat innacurate now; more recently, CWM gives the option to use either the blob format or the full backup format, defaulting back to the full backup format (at least on the latest version I had on my SGS2). To answer your question, though, if you are using the full backup method, you can delete them while in Android. If you're using the blob method, you'll need to "free space" in CWM after deleting backups, either in Android or in CWM.

comment Have I completely lost my IMEI?
This is what I suspected after quite a bit of searching. I've since decided to just live with it, as it's mostly not a problem. The main time it causes trouble is if someone reports a phone using it as stolen, which has happened to me twice since I first lost the IMEI, but not recently. It's also troublesome for apps that use it as an identifier, but in one case it's worked to my advantage.

Also, it appears that the /dev/pttycmd1 device doesn't exist on the i777.

All but the video showing to echo AT+EGMR=<imeistuffhere>, but I can't find anything about that for US phones (the video and everything else I see is referring to multi-IMEI devices, and there are two parameters that I'd like to know the meaning of before I try this on my phone).

comment Why are apps logging me in as someone else?
Ah, yes. I do have the "generic" IMEI. I believe it happened when I got a warranty replacement device, as shortly after I was temporarily suspended because my device was supposedly stolen. I'm guessing I should look to fix that. I found an XDA thread about Docomo-modified devices, but is there something relevant to the general AT&T i777?

comment How can I tell CWM to perform a full backup instead of an incremental backup?
Koush (the writer of CWM) described it on his Google+ account.

Yeah, from what I understand, the "freeing space" is deleting no longer used blobs from deleted backups. The downside is that you can no longer move off entire backups, though (the dated folder doesn't actually contain any backup, just pointers to the blobs).
