    I'm new to Android (coming from E90) and I had a few questions regarding backing up and restoring once you update.

    Will the update to 2.2 be just that - an update? Or will it be the equivalent of flashing the device meaning I will have to re-install all my apps, contacts, settings, etc... and if so, how does that work? I've noticed the market keeps a list of all the apps you've downloaded. Does it therefore allow you to "re-sync" all the apps you had installed?

    Basically just trying to gauge how much of a headache this update will be. Nokia had a backup utility for Symbian so that once you flashed your device, you just re-synced it and everything was back the way it was. Thanks for the help!

    Doesn't wipe anything. WAY easier than 2.1 was.

    Just to clarify, the "official" update isn't out yet. Should hit 8/3. SHOULD. The one everyone has installed lately was "officially" unofficial. :) And some people have reported with that one that the Flash doesn't work properly until you do a hard reset, wiping out all stuff not on the SD card.

    So I think the right answer so far is, we don't know.

    there is a fix without doing the hard reset, you have to install the new flash drive..... xda has it, its how i fixed mine without hard resetting

    it also only seems to effect people that were using Flash 10 for 2.1
