    how to go from a 2.0.1 ROM to a 2.1 ERE ROM?

    I've been reading about how good Pete's new V.04 2.1 ERE25 ROM is and I'm thinking about making the switch, however I have a few questions first..
    I'm currently running the Smoked Glass 2.0.1 ROM, and I've read that if i want to upgrade to a 2.1 ROM i have to do a factory reset.
    Does this mean that I will lose ALL my data? Like my apps, and contacts, and everything?
    How do I go about doing a factory reset and switching to a 2.1 based ROM?

    Pardon me if these are dumb questions, but I've only changed ROM's once, and that was from stock to 2.0.1 so I didn't have to do all this mumbo jumbo of resetting and stuff. My search did not yield any concrete answers as well.

    Thanks!

    If you want to install Pete's ere25 ROM, just *literally* follow every direction on his post over at Alldroid....

    You have to wipe data, but use Astro or Titanium Backup to back up all your apps first. Your contacts, email, calender info, paid apps etc. will be restored once you sign back into your google account atfter you flash Pete's ROM.

    Trust me, its definitely worth it for ere25 IMHO....

    I think so as well.

    Make sure you do both wipe steps in Nandroid after you backup.

    Heck, I may go all the way back to stock by flashing a 2.1 SBF and build from there so everything is 2.1.

    Once you try it, you'll KNOW

    Haha, yeah basically its the MOST stable and FASTEST build I've ever used so far...seriously, the first time I flashed it (I used .sbf and RSDLite) I seriously debated on not even installing SetCPU or downloading one of Chevy's kernels....no lie.

    But I gave in cause I'm addicted to SPEED

    Not sure I completely understand the backing up the apps. If it wipes all data, won't astro be removed and the backup gone? Or does the backup go to the sd card???

    Install Astro after the update and then the backups are there still?

    Cool, cool. I don't have a stock 2.1 SBF to work from, so I am waiting for someone to build me a 2.1 SBF with my boot logo.

    Okay already confused. In Pete's thread on Alldroid it gives two main download links. One is for the update.zip (that's the ROM, right?), and the other is labeled as nandroid backup V0.3. Do I need to do anything with that download if i'm coming from 2.0.1?

    Damnit, I reflashed over and over and finally got a ROM and theme setup that I am happy with, is fast, etc and now this fancy ERE25 comes along and is going to make me wipe and start over AGAIN!

    Note: This is the fastest evolving phone-community I've ever been a part of. It seems like every week or two there is something new. Either a new version of your favorite ROM, a leak of some apps/widgets from a new version, a new kernal, a new leaked OTA, etc. I love it.
