    Here's my predicament.

    I was previously rooted and running a custom ROM which supported Apps2SD+.

    I suffered the dreaded reboot problem so unrooted and returned my phone under warranty to get repaired.

    I'm reluctant to root and flash a custom ROM straight away incase the problem returns - as I've read horror stories of some people receiving the phone back with the problem still occuring.

    I kept my partitioned SD Card safe with everything on it and also backed it up.

    I also have 4GB SD card (which originally game with my Desire) which I could use for the time being on a stock ROM.

    If/when the time comes to root and flash the custom ROM I was using (the final version of LeeDroid) could I simply insert my old SD card, flash LeeDroid and then restore all my apps and settings like I would do prior to the repair?

    Or would the different IMEI number prevent this somehow?

    Cheers.

    Cheers mate. That was what I was hoping to hear! :D

    I didn't want to have to repartition the SD card etc if I could avoid it. I was just unsure if the IMEI number or any other changes would affect restoration of any kind.
