    it MAY not even be something that's possible...

    you know how, when you got your phone set up JUST perfect, then blam-o something happens and you have to do a factory wipe of your phone, eliminating all your perfectly placed settings...

    wouldn't it be nice if there was an app that you could run to STORE all your settings, on your sd card, then if/when you have to do a wipe, OR get a new phone (of the same model) you can run this app and bingo bango, all your settings are just how they were before?

    does this app exist, I'd pay 20 dollars if not more for it lol...

    I'd like something like this too, something that stores everything on the phone, files, settings, apps, and such. Except it would be more efficient to store it on a computer.

    you could only do this if you were rooted.....since theres no way to access all the system folders without root.... and if youre rooted you can already do this via nandroid backup

    If you're willing to root your phone, ROM Manager will do this. I wouldn't be without it. I've used it a few times to restore to the exact state I had before something went awry.

    My Backup Pro does this without root. I've used it before just for this purpose and it works. With root, Nandroid is the app you're looking for.
