    Yep. But - maybe not the system apps. Hate it when I misspeak (nice euphemism for screw up) =- checking now.

    Astro will do most of them - all of the downloaded ones, a few from the system pre-installs.

    If so can you explain to others how you are doing it? Also what will be saved in terms of when you sync up the 3D for the first time (google contacts, does that include facebook information as well) I am wondering if i should or not prior to tomorrow mornings big release -

    Also whats on our mem cards right now that would be worth transferring over ..
    Sorry but never had some much on a phone until the 4G and want to make sure i dont loose anything - (have music, photos, apps etc..)

    I've moved your thread over here - a few posts up discusses the ins and outs of getting your apps from one phone to the other.

    To wipe your phone to ensure it's blank, perform a factory reset (settings, SD & phone storage) then unmount and format your SD card. (Be sure to back that up to your PC first!!)

    Personally, I'd grab the whole SD card - you can always toss away later what you don't need, but you can't get back anything once you've formatted the new one.

    Hope this helps!

    Does Astro save app data to your sdcard or just the applications? If not, is there a way to save data?

    I believe just the app, without root methods, not sure how to advise saving and restoring data.

    Dang. Phone came with 2.3 and I've only had it for a week so I didn't really have a chance to root it.

    I just went from a Evo 4G to a Evo 3D.

    I dont remember what i did on my Evo but in the end i had all my contacts in one gmail acct (Email #1). Then i had my market apps on a different gmail acct (Email #2).

    When i got my Evo 3D at the Sprint store the guy asked for my gmail account to sync my contacts.. so i gave him the account i had my contacts on (Email #1). I dont know how he set it up but he gave me back the phone with my contacts showing. Which was fine.

    I later got on market and started downloading apps. Thats when i realised that my market was tied to the same account i had my contacts on (Email #1) and not the one i had my apps on (Email #2).

    I need market to be synced to my other gmail account (Email #2) because i purchased some apps on that account.. what can i do?

    I hope i make sense lol

    Any help is appreciated!

    Factory reset, before you waste time on widgets and wallpapers, or money on apps. Then set up your market Gmail account first, as your primary account. Then just go to accounts and sync, and hit "add account".

    Thanks for the response! Well if i have to reset in order to get my other gmail account on my market then i will just wait a few months to see if root comes out for Evo 3D.

    Thanks again!

    Try running Setup in the app drawer, top hat icon.

    On my wife's EVO the market app like others have experienced don't have all of her apps showing so she can't update them. I have tried the different techniques of: Force stopping the Market, Clearing the Cache, and I cannot clear the data because the button is always grayed out even though I have stopped the updater, or google frameworks. The other technique people have said that worked was downloading and uninstalling a free app, but did no use.

    Anybody know a way to get the apps to show back up or how to get my Clear data button not grayed out?

    Make sure the content filter settings allow all aps. Some apps seem mis-clasified and do not show up when there are restrictions.

    I had this same problem after I downloaded the new market also couldn't get any of my apps to show up my apps once I got the new market. I tried lots of different options and couldn't get it to work so I just put the old market back on my phone and will wait for the OTA update for the new market-

    They are linked to ur gmail, amazon or slideme account and will be available for download once you switch since this is the root thread root, use titanium back up or my backup root and save then restore

    back them up to your sd card via third party app(appmonster,appbrain,astro file manager) on the Evo then move your card to your 3D and used the same app to restore them

    Market > Settings > My Apps.

    Assuming you used the same Google / Gmail account to buy apps on your 4G as you did on your 3D. If not, make sure you get the new market and put your old Gmail in the accounts section. Then you can switch to your old account and use the apps you bought with that Gmail. I have 2 Google accounts and I do this. Really easy.

    But, if you want to back up save games and such, yeah, TB will do that. Mybackup Root will probably do it, too.

    I'm not rooted, sorry about putting this in here. So if I install appbrain on my new phone will my apps come with me?

    Your apps are always linked to your Google account. If you go to the Android Market, you'll see "purchased" and "download" for the paid apps you've already purchased.

    Restoring the apps from astro but the apps don't show up at the market. Just wondering if there's anyway I can relink them? I search the forum and some people said astro has fixed the issue but some said not. According to my situation, it's not fixed.....

    I know that contacts sync but do app sync? A example would be if I do a factory reset will mylst of all my apps I had downloaded before I reset my phone be able to be redownloaded without having to write down a huge list of all my current apps, this is not to be confused with the complete list that includes all my downloads on the gmail account, because of course I deleted a lot of apps I didn't like and don't want to redownload all the apps I uninstalled in the past
