Backup - how complete?Support

    Just a quick question: I have 'backup pro' installed and have backed up everything possible. If I now do a total (hard) reset (for continuous faulty clock problems mentioned elsewhere on the forum), then how much of the settings etc. will I get back using the 'restore' function? Do I get it all back (phone as it was before), or are there things missing?

    In other words does 'backup pro' do a complete job or will I have to fiddle around for hours after the reset??

    If youve got an unlocked bootloader install CWM which will do a fully system backup

    Not rooted or bootloaded so no help - sorry; not what I asked.....

    I read on the description of the app and it seems as it will restore most of the settings on the phone. But I don't think that it will restore the Homescreen setup that you have at the moment nor any added words to the dictionary. So I don't think it will take you too long after the restore to have everything back the way you have it right now.

    Thanks for that - I coincidentally found that out the hard way a couple of days ago when the phone totally crashed for the first time (My 5800 used to crash at least once a fortnight :mad: :D). As you say, it creates its own homescreens AND app screen order - - took an age to get back, not to mention the album art (off topic!). S'pose it depends on your definition of "not too long".....;)

    Well I must say that even if it was the hard way (really bad that it happened to you :eek:) I'm glad that it is the way you want it right now :)

    I doesn't get everything back exactly the same but it takes care of a lot of things that do take ages to replace yourself so you spend a lot less time reinstalling apps. The main reason I use it is things like the call/sms/data logs that apps make are replaced after the wipe so you haven't lost your history.
