    Hi,

    I have upgraded my partners x10 from Android 1.6 to 2.1, and I used the 'Backup and Restore' option as specified by the Sony upgrade software which I obtained from the Sony Ericsson website.

    On restoring everything I seem to have lost the paid-for apps and the associated game saves.

    3 months of Angry Birds progress have been lost. I now have one very angy bird of my own! :(

    Can anyone advise please as to how I can get the paid-for apps back without paying for them again, and also whether the old game data might be lurking anywhere... how I can restore it.

    Thanks in advance...

    According to this thread, here is how you get the apps back:

    Main: Android 2.1 Update wiped my apps.. Can...

    That might get the apps back.


    As for game progress...I don't know if there is a way to move your Angry Bird progress from 1.6 to 2.1.


    You can backup your Angry Bird data by rooting your phone and installing an app like Titanium....but I am not sure if you were to back it up on 1.6 and try and restore it on 2.1....would that data be readable? I don't know.


    I haven't looked too much into it....but I did notice this thread on a different site:
