Fairly new Droid user here (about 3 moths I guess).
I did the update manually to 2.1 and have been hearing a lot about problems with the Gallery and Google Earth and how the only solution is to do a Factory Reset.
Well -- I'm not having any problems with the Gallery - it is working fine and syncing with my picasa albums with no problems.
I don't see Google Earth in the Market, but really only looked because of all the posts about it missing. I probably would not install it anyway.
So ... on to my questions ...
If I do a Factory Reset from the setting menu -
1 - will I have to enter all my email settings again?
(I have three gmail accounts, and one email account in K-9)
2 - will I have to re-download all my application from the Market again?
(if so, will they all be listed in the "downloads" section, both paid and free apps?)
3 - will I need to go through any activation process with Verizon?
4 - will my bookmarks, saved passwords, etc. in the browser be saved or erased?
5 - will my screens be reset to the stock?
(will I have to re-add my gadgets, shortcuts and folders?)
I think that is all the questions I can think of at the moment
And ... I did try searching for over an hour and found some information here and there, but also found conflicting information in different threads.
So - any answers will be greatly appreciated.
