    *sigh* I promise I'm not really an idiot!

    1. I've re-installed something that's causing me random reboots again, so I need to get into recovery, but now I can't remember how! I have ROM Manager and Droid 2 Bootstrapper and am on Miui. I tried to boot stock recovery, but somehow that didn't get me into recovery either? :thinking:

    2. Should I want to flash to another ROM, do I use ROM Manager for that? Or is there a manual way I need to use?

    3. Is ROM Manager premium worth it?

    4. There's really only about 2-3 apps on my Titanium BU that I absolutely couldn't get from the market again. (And Amazon is really good with theirs, so no worries there!) Is there a way to get them off my uSD and save them on my PC, so I can format the SD card? (One of them was a holiday special from EA last year for $0.99 that doesn't allow any upgrades, etc.)

    Thanks in advance for your patience and your help!

    Amy :D

    Ok, I got into recovery using the reboot option in Miui. I don't know why it worked this time and not the last few times? Now, I'm booting. We'll see.

    I still need to know if I can get an .apk file from somewhere in the folders TiBU makes and back it up to my PC desktop. And then what's the best way to re-format my uSD card? PC? Or is there a menu in the phone to do it?

    You can just copy the Titaniumbackup folder to your pc and back again after formatting.

    You should format your sdcard in your PC if you can, since your phone will format it as a linux format, which your pc can't read unless it's in your phone and your phone is plugged in via usb.

    Not everyone like RM. I purchased it a long time ago and use it all the time to download/install tablet updates and create/manage backups. Your X has other apps, but many devices have only RM. You could use RM to download the next update, if the free version will let you do that.

    In order to boot into recovery via RM, you need to open a terminal app and type:

    su (tap enter)
    cat.jpg (tap enter)

    I believe if an app has helped you a lot, you purchase it to support the continued development of it. I also own TIBU. :D

    The paid version of TIBU makes it a LOT easier to batch install apps.

    +1 to buying TIBU.

    Hmmm is there a way to transfer our game data to a new phone?

    I would think it's on your sdcard.

    New phone? What did you do? :D
