    backup assistant?

    Hey guys,

    Just loaded up this rom and i love it. I cant figure out how to find backup assistant so i can load my contacts from it though. Is there a script to install it? Also, what are all the scripts that we can use with this rom? I didnt see them listed in the rom post where you DL the rom from.

    Thanks for the help guys

    How is everyone else getting their contacts back in without it? I installed this ROM on my wifes DX, had to export her contacts to gmail then to the phone (not very fun either). Would like to hook up my D2 but don't want to go through all that again.

    BUMP, for any help with backup assistant.

    Pulled it from my D2, have it on the laptop @ home. Maybe the app differs between phones.....who knows?

    Guys, I don't know how to get backup assistant back, but I can tell you that like 99% of users hate it, and are excited to get rid of it. Google backs up all your contacts (if you have the option turned on). This is more reliable than Backup Assistant, and doesn't require a constantly running service like BA.

    Thanks for the input. Its just the easy way to get them back....lol. don't know how Google works but I only see contacts that I have made since I got my D2 and not "all" of them. Don't look forward to moving 250+ contacts over manually.

    Well, if you google around, for BackupAssistant.apk, I'm sure one of the forums will have a download link for it. I know it's one of the programs necessary to get an OTA update, and someone put together a download with all of that stock crap. Check around at androidforums.com and xda developers, I remember there's a big list on one of those sites. After that, make sure you set your google account to sync contacts, then anything you put in your phone will be backed up to Google's servers for next time.

    Google to backup contacts

    If you have your contacts on the backup assistant go to the verizonwireless website and login. Click on Select All, actions, export contacts. Save the file(CVS).
    Log into gmail, click on contacts, more actions, import.
    This should push the contacts to your phone and they can be edited from your google contacts.
    If this doesn't work go to settings, accounts & sync, click on the gmail account, make sure sync contacts is checked.
