    i noticed that the majority of ROMs (if not all of them) require you to wipe system/data/cache before you install. my understanding is that doing this will basically reset your phone back to what it was when you first got it. i want to install a ROM, but really don't want to have to go and install all my apps again and fix all the settings for each etc.

    i noticed in Titanium Backup that you can backup apps, system or both. if i were to back up both and then install the ROM, when the phone rebooted, could i just install Titanium Backup and restore apps and system? would return my phone to how it was before i wiped?

    if this is false, are there any other ways to facilitate the restoring of stuff after wipe?

    any help would be appreciated.

    ok so i've backed up "all user apps + system data" with Titanium Backup PRO/Donate. i do have some bloatware removed. the phone has the 2.3.9 original Froyo leak, rooted, deodexed, themed.

    before i am ready for a rom like zapX, i should reboot into recovery and do a nandroid backup from there, right?

    should i restore my removed bloatware? restore the original system.jar and framework-res.apk? is this necessary?
