    So I have been reading alot about GB and decided to update from froyo. I made a back up with bootstrap and I really like how it saves everything no need to do anything restore right where you left off. I upgraded to Gb and thought maybe I could use this restore to put all my apps back, my screens setup the way I like and most importantly I don't have to reenter user names and passwords into all my apps. Well it bricked my phone I couldnt get past the motorola emblem. I SBF'ed back to froyo. My question is can I upgrade to gb and then restore all my stuff right back the way I had it or am I stuck setting up screens, passwords, alarms, dictionaries and all the other stuff that's a royal pita. Thanks ahead of time.

    You were trying to restore a Froyo nandroid on Gingerbread? No, that won't work. Unless you take the official GB update you'll have to re-setup everything, sorry to say. Perhaps if you use Titanium Backup to restore your apps, but there've been people with problems who've done that. Froyo and GB don't like to mix data often. Good luck!

    Just don't restore system data, only apps and their data and you should be fine.

    I'm not sure actually, I never really looked into that, I just saw it as a useful app so I purchased it right away.

    In this case you have to be exact, or you don't get the prize.
