Alright here i go. Ive had my droid for a while and with all the recent teasers for 2.1 and praise given to the sholesrom i have decided to flash sholes 2.0.5 to my droid. The few questions i have are: 1. Will i retain my apps and/or should i make backups with astro first? 2. Will i retain verizon authentication? 3. Will i retain my contacts? I know these are probably noob questions and i will become more fluent as i go but i just want to be sure before i go with it. Testing the waters per se. I hope to hear from someone omniscient on the subject soon.
