    Restore Apps - After Reset

    I had to do a factory reset...

    Will my apps automatically reload? Is there a way to force a reload so they go faster?

    My guess is no, but if you go the the Market they MIGHT show that they were installed???

    If you go to the market and go to the downloads page (menu>downloads) they will all be listed but you will have to manually install them all again.

    I'd recommend getting Astro File Manager and doing periodic application backups with it. Makes reinstalling apps a breeze after a reset.

    Will you lose all info saved in those apps...like passwords saved in a vault app?

    Will you lose info in games? imobsters?

    In the future, get titanium backup, it is very useful for backing and restoring your apps.

    Possible that game settings will survive if they were saved to the SD card by the app. If the app used internal storage for settings then it will be gone.

    Thanks for the backup suggestions.. I wish I had know about them before I did the reset.. But I was stuck in an endless loop of FC and did not have a choice.. I basically lost all my apps because none automatically redownloaded. some ...like Quick Settings I can't even find

    It will not automatically redownload the apps. You have to either go to market under "my downloads" and redownload em or next time use astro file manager or titanum backup like it was stated

    I had to have my phone replaced.. when they did that..some but not all of my apps loaded themselves..
    The downloads only shows what I have downloaded.. not what I had on the phone before the reset
