Hi, long time lurker, first time poster here.
I'm planning on rooting my phone for the first time to take advantage of froyo, or one of the roms based around it. I only have one problem, I can't remember my Gmail password to recover my contacts/apps from the cloud after I root. I tried to recover it, but apparently I didn't give them a recovery email address. To reset it now, they want a security question answer, but to even get that option I have to remain logged out of any google services for 24 hours. Besides that, I'm pretty sure I lied on my security question anyway, as that's what I usually do to strengthen the security of any accounts I register.
Basically, I need another method that will allow me to backup these things and restore them to a new gmail account that I create after I root the phone. The only thing I've seen is some 5 dollar app in the market, and I don't even know if that would work given the fact that I'll be using a new account.
