    I am thinking of upgrading my firmware to the newest. Mine is currently 2.2 Kernal version 2.6.32.9 Build FROYO.UGjL2.

    Do I need to do a factory reset?
    I have backed up the usual contacts etc. If I do a factory reset, what do I lose? Have you upgraded your firmware to the newest? How do you like it?

    thanks in advance for any info,

    :)

    Well I never upgrade with old data.
    99% of all problem after an update is old settings that the new firmware cant handle.
    Make sure you have a good backup on your stuff.

    Ok, so I:

    1) backup all my contacts and everything I can off my phone;
    2) remove the "external" SD card and then;
    3) do a factory reset and then;
    4) update to the new firmware

    Does this sound good?

    thanks,

    :)

    I cannot access the backup file. Luckily I backed up my contacts separately a few days ago, but I also performed a full backup. I can't find a way to perform a recovery of the backup. Why not?
