I have DM 1.0 and like it for the most part. However, I get force closes probably 10 times a day. I've also had the phone freeze up a few times but can't remember if it's only been since I installed Helix or beforehand.
Anyway, now that I have a week to tinker with my phone, I see that a lot has changed recently and 2.1 was leaked and ROM makers have worked their magic.
I know the main big ones are BB, Dominator, Cyanogen, and I guess Smoked Glass too. I used MetaMorph to put Xeudoxus's xHero theme but I'm not sure if I feel I *need* a theme anymore. I just want a phone that will be super quick and stable and jam packed with goodies. But "best rom" is for a different place and time.
Here's my situation:
I have probably about 100 apps, and I know the best way to put in a ROM is to wipe everything.
I have a bunch of Contacts but that's on the Google Cloud so thats fine.
I have GV so my texts are fine, but I'd rather not lose the MMS/SMS I have on my phone still.
I have Google Calendar settings I want to be saved.
I don't want my home icons to be unorganized. Now that I use Helix, I guess I'm talking about Helix and not Home icons...
Which leads me to..:
Coming from DM 1.0, how do I go about putting in a new 2.1 ROM and keeping all my stuff and not sacrificing stability?
-Just not wipe when installing
-Do a Nandroid restore after installing
-Use something like MyBackup Pro
-Use something like Titanium Backup (Is there a difference between this and MyBackup Pro?)
-Do something else (Suggest please)
