    i want to try out some new roms but i want to make sure i save all my data. ive been backing apps by copying the from app folder in phone and the only data i can backup is from apps that have a backup to sd feature. the solution i seen most people use is titanium backup but after i change rom and re install titanium the backups i made for all my apps dont exist anymore. ive either followed the wrong tutorial or im not doing something right, can anyone give me a quick guide?

    Easiest way is to do a contact backup, and copy the entire contents of your phone onto your PC.

    Or use Titanium backup if you want.

    I don't back my stuff up other than contacts....But I have...and all I needed to do was reinstall the app I wanted and then copy over the remaining userdata into the appropriate place. (drag and drop...skip all existing files....copies over the rest)

    Guys,

    I've moved this thread from the main Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 to its all-things-root sub-forum.

    Cheers!
