    For those that keep flashing roms:
    Do you ever setup your layouts? Is that a way to load your shortcuts and widgets that you had after a wipe?

    Yeah, app + settings in Titanium. But I didn't even wipe when loading the new 2.2 leak so I didn't have to do anything but boot up and go. Kind of a gamble but I figured 2.2 Sense to another 2.2 Sense would play well, and it did.

    What rom were you using before? So you just installed new rom, no wipe or anything, restored from Titanium with no issues?

    Titanium gets my apps back but it still takes a bunch of time to get my screens setup with the shortcuts and widgets to how I like it.

    Will Titanium back that up also?

    Are there any alternate homescreens that will backup your layout so when you wipe you can be back up and running quicker?

    I just finally got my phone situated after the last rom flash and would love to experiment more but also like to have my phone laid out for convenience.

    Yeah, you can restore using the All apps + data option. Or if you want fewer chances for conflicts depending on how radical of a change you jut made with the Rom flash, you can single out certain apps (such as HTC Sense or Launcher Pro) and restore apps and settings to only those while restoring just apps only elsewhere.

    Example:
    Open Titanium > Menu > Batch > Restore All Apps With Data > Deselect All > Reselect only Launcher Pro > Click App + Data dot > Click Run the batch operation

    Now you should not only get Launcher Pro back, but also your last used configuration on all home screens. If you're just flashing an update to a Rom you're already running, just do app + data for the whole works and everything should be the same.

    Yeah it was so exactly the same, only way I knew I'd flashed correctly was to check About Phone > Software. Lol.
