    If I wipe my phone, will the market still show the applications I downloaded in the past? I know before I could use the market I had to connect it to my gmail account.. wasn't sure if my download list was tied to my Gmail account or not.

    Thanks

    Yes your download list is tied in with your gmail account, wipe away!

    Not always. If you flash something like the 1.6+ ROM's, you'll lose your download history, even when you come back to a 1.5 ROM.

    I suggest using Titanium Backup to backup all your apps, just in case :)

    Your paid apps are linked to your Gmail account, so if you have purchased an app you should be able to download it if you wipe the phone. The free apps aren't normally stored, so I would make a note of which ones you have

    There we go. That's what I was looking for but couldn't think of it to explain it that way :D

    I take it the paid version of Titanium Backup runs a lot faster and you fully batch the backup? If so then I'll probably pay for the full version.
