    if you have joneidys recovery, you go down to wipe,click on it the first option is to wipe all userdata....if u dont have joneidys recovery, you should get it..has never done anybody wrong as far as i know.

    Hi all! Newbie here and to the Android platform -- just got my Optimus M yesterday. I've rooted it and installed a recovery system (as explained in getitnowmarketing's All In One Recovery thread).

    I'd really like to try this Sense ROM. My question is simple: Am I going to have to reconfigure everything that I've already done? (i.e. email accounts, apps from the marketplace, and so on) Someone else actually asked this earlier in this thread, but the only answer I saw was just someone saying "check your PM". So, it wasn't answered for everyone.

    Can someone fill me in? Can I fairly easily get to running this custom ROM without having to redo all of my current settings? Since the first step is to "wipe all user data", it sounds like the answer is "no" unless I do "something" -- I just don't know what the "something" is. I have backed up with TiBu, but I see some concerns that if you restore settings from TiBu to a new ROM, there are often issues. So, doesn't sound like that is the way to go either.

    Thanks for any info on this!

    - John...

    Well coming from stock, I`ll recommend you to use Titanium Backup and backup the apps that you installed. Not the ones that came with the phone.
    If you restore stock apps it could cause force close and stop some apps from working.

    You will need to reconfigure the settings like email, brightness and such.
    But you will not lose your contacts or your downloaded apps.

    Contacts are synced to Gmail, so if you have used Market it means that your Contacts are on Gmail. To make sure you can sign in on the PC and see if you find your phone contacts are on your Gmail account.

    And the apps are already backed up on your Sdcard because of Titamiun Backup.

    Hope this helps

    If you used Email 1.0 and Joneidy included it in the Sense ROM, you can use TiBu to restore the data only. This will restore all email settings and the current email content. I do not recommend restoring the app itself, as I do not know how the ROM will take to it. If you want to attempt restoring the app because it's not included, I'd recommend a full functional NAND backup first. Gmail app auto-adds your account back, so that's not as much of a fight to restore settings manually.

    Only some system data with extreme discretion can be migrated across multiple ROMs. It depends on what you wish to take with you. Most who encounter errors try to restore EVERYTHING, crashing the phone.

    Ok -- thanks for the info! Just trying to think of what I'll have to reconfigure manually then... Sounds like email account settings (i.e. my IMAP server stuff -- not GMail), any WiFi passwords that I've stored, I assume... I guess maybe there isn't too much else yet. So, that isn't too bad.

    Since the ROM is still Froyo, you might be able to migrate WiFi/BT settings. They will be highlighted in green in TiBu and labeled "Bluetooth Pairings" and "Wi-Fi Access Points".

    If you used the Gmail app for other email accounts, you can use the same data only rule. Update it to v2.3.4.1 (latest) prior to changing ROMs and then update/install it from the market after moving to Sense. This way you don't have to worry about version conflicts, if any.

    I just got this ROM installed but I'm having a severe issue where I am unable to restore my Titanium Backup apps and settings (maybe due the version on this ROM being far outdated from the latest?)

    In any event, I am unable to update and/or uninstall Titanium backup and I cannot restore all my apps and system data. Any help would be appreciated.

    The version on his latest update (which you have if you clicked the DOWNLOAD link on the OP and installed what you downloaded anytime since July 18th) is 3.8.9.2. The latest version is 3.9.0.1. Any documentation regarding functionality only specifies at least 3.5+ at the latest that I've seen. Regardless, it's working wonderfully for me. You might try wiping, restoring the last image you had (assuming you've run a nandroid backup before switching to this rom), and redoing all your apps backups. You're familiar with the batch feature right? If not, ask and I'll explain. Makes things much faster on doing backups. Remember also that if you're trying to restore any actual system apps, it won't necessarily work.

    Other than that, Joneidy might be able to better answer your question.

    The issue I'm having seems to be rare. Titanium backup batch restore ends up freezing the process and reboots the phone. The CPU clock is running at 600 so it's not related to that.

    Restoring either data or app yields the same results, same as batch or doing it one by one. This issue is preventing me from restoring my apps the way you suggested.

    On a second note, is it also normal for ADW and these weather widgets to refuse to be uninstalled? I know I can take out the .apk from memory but shouldn't I still be able to uninstall these apps via the system manager?
  19. teh_dude

    teh_dude Well-Known Member

    For this ROM, Joneidy included ADW and those weather widgets, and as such, this installation of Android sees them as system applications, and will not allow you to uninstall them in the traditional sense. In this ROM, you'll find that also applies to Root Explorer, Titanium Backup as you've found, Player Pro, and Phandroid.

    EDIT: Titanium Backup Pro (included in this ROM) has a feature where if you do a long-press on any app in the backup/restore list, a list of options come up, one of which is to convert the app from a system app to a user app or vice versa. Once you do that successfully (the app will no longer be listed in red text, and will change to white), you can uninstall the app. Titanium Backup would be a forceful delete through Root Explorer though since it does not show up in its own app listings. But once you get everything working, I can't imagine why any root user would get rid of TiBu. It's so damned useful lol.

    Specifically, you would not want to uninstall ADW in this case, unless you have another home launcher installed that you prefer. Otherwise, you will have no interface to interact with as a portal to all of your other applications. It would be as if you were trying to use MS Windows without any desktop/taskbar, and there was nothing in its stead.

    Instead of my previous suggestion, which frankly is a pain in the ass lol, you might try just wiping and re-flashing this ROM, since it sounds like you haven't set much of anything up yet anyway due to the problems you're encountering.

    Anytime you change ROMs, you should NOT be restoring "System Apps and Data" as a whole with the batch option. You can only restore "User Apps and Data". If you have particular System Data you are looking for, post it so we can let you know whether or not it can be restored.
  21. mario0318

    mario0318 Well-Known Member

    Thanks Darnell. Unfortunately the issue pertained to restoring only the apps, either by batch or one by one. Same result... it froze and reboots the phone.

    Ultimately I decided to re-flash the ROM, force delete all the uninstallable apps and really start from a clean slate.

    I was wondering if there's a way I can just get the theme without the ROM
  22. teh_dude

    teh_dude Well-Known Member

    Did re-flashing work for you?

    On themes, you can do somewhat of a theme by visiting the UOT kitchen here: UOT Kitchen

    They have a how-to link along the top row to explain what to do. However those themes will not provide you with all the nifty icons that Joneidy has provided us with. =>

    The big advantage to this ROM is memory management. It's A2SD capable with DarkTremor scripts, so you can massively increase your ability to install a motherload of apps if you so please. With the stock rom, Froyo's native apps2SD helps some, but not as much, and you'll use up the internal 200 MB a lot quicker. Thanks to this ROM, I'm running a lot more apps than are possible on a stock phone.

    Since you've already gone over the brink and installed custom recovery, you might as well find a ROM you like, but if you really really just want to theme the stock rom, you still need recovery to flash the theme, so, yeah. lol.

    So far I've kept the ROM as I work out the kinks. It's quite excellent, and yes, allocating a gigabyte on ext3 certainly makes the experience even better.

    At least with the ability to overclock the CPU I can run the phone on a higher density and with ultra smooth graphics. Now if only this was Gingerbread :p
