    Hi guys,

    I've rooted my Desire, and am currently using the deFrost FroYo ROM.

    I'm trawling through and looking at different ROM options.

    I currently have all of my applications installed on the SD Card.

    Here comes the n00b question...

    If I take out the SD Card with the installed apps, and use a 'fresh' SD card to flash the new ROM, will putting the original SD card in the phone retain all of the apps and just work 'as is'? Or do I still need to back them all up somehow?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Cheers,
    Dave.

    Back them up with titanium. If you go from Defrost to a Sense Rom, you will have to wipe everything anyway.
