I've looked at some of the other forums on here and they all seem to have gone cold. Since it's been nearly 2 years since the last post of identical threads, I wanted to see if anyone has any additional recommendations for completely backing up and restoring a phone. Below are the threads I've reviewed. http://androidforums.com/android-lounge/503865-complete-backup-complete-restore.html http://androidforums.com/samsung-galaxy-s2-international/407541-complete-backup-restore-gs2.html http://androidforums.com/evo-4g-all...kup-restore-complete-settings-prefrences.html The reason I'm inquiring is that I just fell victim to Kies being a POS. I knew that it wasn't going to restore backup data, but I thought at least it would keep all the phone settings and configuration. I guess that would only "work" if you didn't perform a fresh factory ROM install like I did. The reason for the refresh is that my phone was starting to hang, and reboot after being frozen for 90 seconds. It started 7 days ago and I would experience this a couple times a day, and I just got the phone January 2nd. Since it was Rooted with a week after getting it, I thought the Rooting might be the issue. So here I am, with a non-rooted phone hoping the problem doesn't continue.
