    Hey this might be a noob question but i have to ask before flashing back to 2.0.1. When I flash back to 2.0.1 how would I recover all me accounts and apps? Can I just redownload all the apps i paid for from the market and will my exchange account, gmail, and etc restore or do I need to backup all this somehow and restore it?

    Thanks in advance

    Are you talking about unrooted 2.01 (damn, I hate even typing it)? Titanium will backup all your apps and app data (fast an efficiently) and restore them to your phone if still rooted. That said, your paid apps and contacts will reappear in the market (they are linked to your primary Google account) regardless of being rooted or not.

    If you unroot and have DLed Titanium, could you still use it? Think these winners will need to know that answer.

    Titanium Backup requests root access at startup. I don't think it functions at all without it.

    If you were once rooted, made a backup with it, unrooted and then re-rooted, you should be able to restore that backup.

    If you are on stock 2.1, you cannot back up with Titanium, it requires root.

    Yes you can get all the apps off the market, even ones you paid for and you won't be charged. Once you have root you can use titanium and it will backup all apps WITH the data.
    I also recommend Handy Backup (or any other app that does this)- it does backup/restore of your call logs and sms. Gmail and your contacts will be backed up by google and auto restore.

    Hope this helps!
