    I looked around for this topic, but came up with nothing (Which surprises me)

    I've played around with my phone over the past month to the point where I've probably fubarred it.
    I know how I want my phone to be setup (finally) but I think I've introduced way too much bloat and un-needed garbage by installing-unintalling apps and roms.

    Is there a way to reset the phone back to factory, but at the same time keeping my contacts and apps in tact? (Did that make sense?)

    So I basically want a clean slate without having to write down all my my apps and re-setting up my screens.

    I have Fresh 1.1 and Gumbo

    Well, if you've got your contacts as "google" contacts, they're already backed up to your google account. If not, there's a couple apps around to change them to google contacts, or at least export them so you can go into your account and import the list back, making them google contacts.

    As for apps, Titanium Backup from the market should backup your apps (might even do your contacts, not sure).
