I'm fairly new to the droid, had mine a couple weeks now running BB 1.0 and 1.2ghz kernel. I do however like to mess around and check out other roms as they become available though, and I'd like a good solution to app backup. When I flashed bugless beast I first went to my market downloads to see if they were all still there, and they were, so I proceeded to start a few apps downloading and installing and go about customizing the phone. After those few apps were done installing, I went back to download more, and they were all gone. The only apps in the downloads list were the apps I just downloaded 2 minutes ago, so I had to find all my other apps manually and install them.
I'v seen a few backup solutions out there, but it looks like a lot of them don't restore the apps link to the market, so you can't receive updates from the market after you reinstall. I would like a solution that stores all the apps on the SD card, and would either allow automatic or manual re-installation of all the apps, AND restore their links in the market to show they are installed and receive updates. Also a backup for my SMS messages would be great, but not completely required, apps are the most important. What do you recommend?
