    Hi guys.

    I recently followed the instructions to update to Froyo on my X8 on this forum and it worked perfectly; thank you so much!

    When I installed xRecovery and made the backup, I did this using the default 2GB card, but after a few apps and music this is now getting full, so I have ordered an 8GB card to use in this phone, but all my backup of my old 2.1 and the new Froyo folder are on the SD card.

    Can I just insert the new card and transfer over the xRecovery program and folders? I am a bit lost on this as it also has a whole load of other folder which I am unsure of.

    Thanks for your help.

    Yes you should be able to copy over the folders over to the new card, on your PC, and it should work fine. Just to be sure, copy all folders on the SD card over to the new card.

    Thanks for that, only thing is I seem to have lots of important files; for example:

    MEMSTICK.IND
    MSTK_PRO.IND
    MEMSTICKINFO.TXT
    ROOT EXPLORER V2.15.APK

    Then folders like:

    app-data
    appsaver
    backup

    so you see I am bit confused, but I'm loving Android, lol.

    If I have to use xRecovery again by clicking on the back button on startup is it enough just to copy the BACKUP folder from my 2Gb to my 8Gb stick?

    Sorry for all the questions.

    I'm not familiar with xRecovery at all, but for my Android phones I just copy all the files from the old SD card to the new SD card and it just works.
