    Replacement ?'s and HELP
    Just received my replacement D1, is there a way to have the market automatically reinstall all my old apps? I thought that I had read somewhere that they were all linked to my gmail so they would automatically update and restore.(paid & free)

    Also, I was rooted before, when I returned the phone, I transfered everything on my SD card to a folder on my desktop, & unrooted. I am by no means "techy", what will happen if I just transfer everything that was on the card to this new card? I know I have to be careful of the update.zip file, but what about all the other folders and files? I don't even remember the root process, so back to the forums I go.

    Thanks
    Regards

    I know that you can load certain folders back on with no problem like music,pics,media etc... because I did this just yesterday with another android phone after I rooted and rommed it so I could get his personal stuff back on.

    If I were you, I would format the sdcard in the phone, then do a factory data reset. Once you have signed back into your google account, set the phone down for a long time and do not touch it until you see a "xxx applications restored" message in your notification bar.

    Then there's a couple of things you should do to your phone, enable unknown sources and usb debugging. As far as what to put back onto your sdcard, your media and clockwork/nandroid folders, but any folders on your pc that have a '.' in front, I wouldn't restore.

    Then to reroot your phone, there's a couple threads at this site and then there's this one also:
