    To the people that switch Roms fairly often: What are you using to get settings and apps back as painlessly as possible? I was told titanium donated version will install all your apps back with the press of one button is that right? I been using web installer with Appbrian.. its helpful but still a pain in the ass since I have a lot of apps.

    I installed the first Froyo leak, and now I been using some of adrynalynes' roms.. but its just a pain in the ass if your doing full wipes to make installs are clean... Suggestions please.

    I use titanium free. I only restore the apps I use everyday and when I notice something is missing I will restore it. If I don't notice its gone (This method has taken me from 100+ apps to 37

    (btw titanium free you have to click install then done for each app. Not sure about the paid version)

    I also use Titanium. With the free version you have to install each app separately. I think with the paid version you can do batch installs.

    I just do the old 'App Brain' thing. I feel more comfortable doing a fresh install. Is it necessary? Probably not, but working in IT for 15 yrs has taught me fresh installs are always the best way.

    I think my biggest issue with the few ROM switches I've performed is that if I use Titanium Backup (I paid for Pro) I still lose the links within the "Downloads" portion of the Market. I'm giving appbrain a shot, but it still doesn't fix the whole market problem. Subtle, but rather annoying to me.

    titanium backs up your market links... just go to menu>more>market doctor... I donated for titanium and it was well worth it... did the update to thirdwave with a full wipe/reset and was back up to good as new in about 10 minutes... I only back up the green system files and my apps and with the paid version you dont need to click install for every app it just goes through them all with 1 click
  10. Is there a way to back up SMS. Whenever I do a new rom I always just restore missing apps+data but this does not restore my message history. Most of my work is done through email but I do have the occasional sms conversation with clients for urgent matters. So far I've not found a way to properly backup or restore these.

    for the ones that use adw launcher, there is a settings and backup feature, it saves your layouts and settings to your sd card, so once you restore via titanium, or whatnot, reload the adw settings and it will get you back on track.

    anyone know why we are such rom whores....??? i was perfectly happy with the jager 3.2 rom, then cyangen 6 rc3 came out last night and i dropped jager like it was my adopted stepbrother, then started messing with settings installing system apps, ended up doing a nandroid back to jager cause i got stuck in a bootloop, now im sitting here trying to decide if i should reinstall cm6 again, or just stick with jager..... whats wrong with me? i like all the tweaks and VANILLA of cm6, but the look and feel of the jager rom is right up my ally!
