Hi, I found myself in the ultimate nightmare situation - I lost my DINC (the original) - let's just say it ended up somewhere on a busy and dangerous highway in the rain! The phone was rooted, and of course the original wasn't 4G. Now I'm not sure whether I can restore my apps and Nandroid backup (at least that's what I think was done in ClockworkMod Recovery) to the phone I have now (Incredible 4G LTE). Old Phone: Droid Incredible, Verizon 3G Gingerbread Rooted New Phone: Droid Incredible 4G LTE, Verizon 4G Ice Cream Sandwich Not Rooted until somebody cracks it for Verizon I need to recover what I have lost fairly soon, and am a little troubled that I have not yet seen a root solution for my phone with Verizon. My recovery solution would be somewhat less scary if my current phone was rooted because I've seen how well the backup and restore functions work in ClockworkMod Recovery. I have considered trying out Nandroid Browser to restore my ClockworkMod backup, and it apparently doesn't need root to work (don't know that for sure). I'm beginning to doubt whether this makes any sense as I write this, but anyway 1. Has anyone tried using any such apps for restoring Nandroid backups from an Android session? Do any work well on an un-rooted phone? 2. I'm starting to doubt if this question makes any sense as I write it, but can it be possible to restore a whole system when you don't have the root? 3. am I right to expect Ice Cream Sandwich will immediately to be pushed to my phone, which shipped with it? If not, will the 4G LTE run safely on Gingerbread? 4. Do I need worry that a recovery from an older phone may have any impact on 4G functionality, or other hard-coded functions which I hope are protected from Android? 5. I understand that some of my rooted apps won't work until I am able to root my phone, and I'll just have to live with that. As for Verizon bloatware being lost, can I hope for that (none of that is on the backup)? Any help is appreciated, and if you have any updates on when (or if) the Verizon Incredible LTE will be rooted, this will help me decide whether I need to go find a phone which is more popular (somewhat dismayed how bigger alone always sells).
