How to back up apps. to sd card?
I used to have a blackberry bold 9650, after dealing with it I decided I wanted something better, so I ended up with an lg apex. I admit I really like it, I'm just getting used to it.
I've noticed there's no notification light anywhere that blinks to tell me when I have new texts, emails, mms messages or anything.. so that kinda sucks. I've also noticed it only has 102mb device memory.. my bold had 300 something, so I never had to worry about running out of text message space.. I think they saved to the sd card automatically..
I do like the touchscreen, slide out keyboard.. and the fact that it's android!
So I of course have questions, and seek support!
I managed to figure out how to get it rooted, with busybox and all that.
No idea what recovery mode is though, how to back it up, how to get my contacts and apps onto the sd card. My phone has android 2.1.. and I really want my apps. and text messages to automatically save to the sd card.
Could someone please help me with this? I'm not all that smart about this phone just yet so detailed instructions would be wonderful. My provider is us cellular, and I would like to upgrade it to 2.2 but I don't think us cellular has an official version? My issue is I'd like to upgrade my phone.. but I don't know if it'd work with Your Navigator Deluxe..
I remember on my blackberry I once upgraded the os to an os from sprint and my navigator app wouldn't work just because I used someone elses os. Something to do with service books I think.
So if I can upgrade to 2.2 that'd be great if Your Navigator Deluxe still worked.. if I can't then how do I make it so my apps. and contacts and text messages save to the sd card? Thank you very much!
