    Guys sorry for what i'm sure is a really simple question but if I upgrade from 1.5 to 1.6 using this method Flash rom Galaxo 1.6.1 - Installation on Samsung Galaxy I presume I will loose all my apps and settings.

    Currently on O2 in the UK so i'm worried about losing message center numbers and APN names etc etc.

    Is there a way to backup the phones settings and apps then restore them after i've flashed to 1.6?

    Apologies if this has been covered before in previous threads guys!:eek:

    More seriously; when I upgraded to 1.6 I lost my APN settings. Going into the phone settings, I was able to select some auto-config option or other and it pulled all the correct settings in directly from O2. I can't guarantee that it'll work for you of course, but it did for me. YMMV, IANAL, values may go down as well as up, do not fold, spindle or mutilate, etc etc.

    Titanium Backup can backup everything. Get it from the Market. Needs root.

    I know for sure that I don't have a rooted phone...would it be that difficult to root with the below information?
