I did this and it worked flawlessly. This is a great thread. I wanted to talk about getting a little more specific when reinstalling apps through Astro. Since a lot of my apps get updates 3 times a week if not more, will I no longer be getting notified that there is an update available in the market ? Will i be able to go to the market manually, look at my downloads and see there is an update available? Or will the phone ignore the fact that there is a newer version out in the market ? If so, how can we work around this problem, would we have to uninstall the app (after we restored it), go to market and re-install it officially to get back update notifications?
Its important to me because a lot of the games I play are always being worked on, updated, levels added, etc.
