    I am thinking of upgrading to 2.2 but not sure about restoring apps, I was going to make a list of what I have and fresh install them all, but two I have are paid for Launcher Pro Plus and Torque, how do I go about reinstalling them if they are paid for?

    I know its abit of a noob question but never had to do it so dont wanna upgrade until I know what will happen.

    This would work (and would likely be what I would go with) and is probably easier than making up the list but even if you have to reinstall the apps, the record of payment is still on the Google servers so you wouldn't have to pay for them again.

    You can find them under /data/app using a file manager......for the ones from the Market anyway.

    launcherpro gives you a code so you can add it in easy enough if you have to reinstall it.

    I use AppSaver to backup all my programs. It will make .APK files of any installed app on the phone, i used it again and again and never had issues with it.

    only downside is that this app is real ugly design...but it works
