Best way to backup my phone for an OS uprade?
So I'm getting ready to do my ICS upgrade. But after reading a lot of comments on the boards, it seems like the best thing for me to do is do a factory reset after the upgrade. This kind of undoes all the great benefits of an OEM upgrade, but so be it.
With that, I want as seamless as an upgrade as possible. I'd like all of my settings restored (or as much as possible), and all of the apps restored (along with their state / levels - i.e., Angry Birds, etc.).
I recognize that many apps have their own backup settings. That could take forever to do each one individually. Would be far better if there was a common directory I could just backup and then re-apply in ICS.
Any suggestions appreciated.
