    I am running the FRG01B build that was manually updated and am rooted with rom manager. I want to install a new rom using rom manager so I can overclock my phone but really do not want to lose my data/apps or have to redownload the apps (I have 209 apps installed). I have MyBackUp Pro and tried to backup everything on the phone but after it has shown "backing up apps" and it is trying to upload my apps to the online servers I am always getting an error. Here is my question: If I don't wipe data when installing a new rom, will it work and if not what will happen? Basically what I want is to install a new rom and after everything installs, my phone is the exact same except the rom itself (app shortcuts are in the same place, ect. Is this possible? Thanks in advance for any help you can offer!

    You can try not wiping data. Probs that may arise include stuck on M logo, boot looping, random FCs and reboots.

    Try titanium backup instead?

    Make sure u nandroid first before doing anything ;)

    Your apps, contact data are ask stored by google and should restore.most roms accommodate this very well, every rom I've installed have also restored all apps with no effort on my part. Not wiping is a big risk for stability,i would advise you wipe, especially if you are switching roms. Just make sure you have the back up my apps option selected in settings first, and expect it to take a long time restoring that many apps. You will have to re set up all shortcuts, no way around that.

    You'll end up with a brand new rom, same apps, no shortcuts.

    "MyBackup" in the market will save you homescreen layout.

    I wonder if the homescreen shortcuts restore when going to a different rom
