Default How do I backup game data?

I want to install the latest multi touch update (from T-Mobile UK) but before I do I want to back up all my games data. When I updated to 2.1 I lost them all and had to start again. In particular I don't fancy going through all the levels in Angry Birds yet again to get 3 stars and all the golden eggs.

Does the standard backup and restore app do this or is there something else I can use? Or does this latest update leave apps as they are?

Thanks.

The update *should* not touch what you have saved since the games are on the SD card. but you can never be too carefull. Try to see if there is any saved games folders on the sd and back them up before upgrading. I don't know about AB but for exemple Glu games have a folder in the SD for saves.

I don't think Backup and Restore will do much

Hey Wooks, hadn't even given game data a thought cos I don't use my phone for that however son likes to nick it for a bit of Angrybird and the data is intact after running the update (phew - he'd have been an unhappy bunny if I had lost all that!). I did select the top option, only install update not the second update and factory reset.

Thanks Rose. Will probably download the 2 angrybird apps that bigx5murf mentioned 'just to be safe'.

So does that mean that you didn't have to go through setting up all your contacts etc. again?

Nope, it was all there waiting for me Just make sure you choose the right update option! And don't panic if it seems to take a long time at the SE screen when you restart the phone... I was having a small heart attack cos it took ages and I thought I had bricked it.

Actually it does, but I guess its because I have TB Pro. I know it works as I have restored all my apps including Angrybirds and Angrybirds Seasons at least 15-20 times trying different ROMs.
