    I was lucky enough to get a decent install of Froyo OTA. My battery is awesome, phone and apps are snappy, no lag, no voice quality or 3G issues.

    If for whatever reason i end up having to do a full factory reset, do i keep my current install or is it overwritten or something?

    just curious how it all works.

    thanks

    You loose it all. A factory reset will put your phone back into the condition it would be in if you just bought it.

    So make sure you back up your contacts and media before doing one.

    You will loose all data and apps but the system will remain 2.2 (froyo)

    I notice that after I did a factory reset and reinstalled my apps and data via My Backup Pro, my settings for certain apps went back to factory/initial settings. I had to manually reset notifications sound for example and some widgets wouldn't load on the home page. Small price to pay to get back like new performance after a factory reset.

    This is true....but a factory reset (without syncing facebook) improved battery life, processor speed, etc.
