    transfer from OG -> 3?

    What do you think is the best way to transfer content from my sd card on my OG droid to my new D3?

    copy and paste?

    since my D1 had a 16gb card I took it out and popped it into the D3 and didn't worry about transfering, and I popped in the spare 2gb one I have laying around into the D1, wiped my D1 clean, wont use it like i used to, now it will be mostly a tester device for me i'll put some of those apps that i always like on the sd card though.

    a note for transferring your D1 SD Card though:

    make sure you deleted the .android_secure folder, LOST.DIR, android, then open the DCIM folder and deleted the .thumbnails, and 100ANDRO

    that will keep old data from your D1 off the D3 and prevent any problems
    remember all the apps on your sd card are stored in that .android_secure so keeping that folder and putting it on the D3 may cause issues, I don't know for sure but I deleted all the above to play it safe.

    Create a file call called "wallpapers " on your sd card and put them into it. I use "Astro File Manager" for stuff like that.

    Edit: that's how you do it on the D1 anyway, probably works on the D2 also.

    I don't think there is a CWM Recovery available yet for the Droid3, unless there is one and I am talking out my beak. lol

    Thanks! Now, if I want to flip one of those apps over to D2 as sort of an update, and the .apk has a matching .odex file, what do I do? Just copy both over? Or do I actually install the .apk? Then what about that .odex?

    Okay thanks!
    Now I've done that I created the folder named "wallpapers" and pasted them into that folder but now im not quite sure what next. They don't show up under my wallpapers so I must've done something wrong or there's another step. Any ideas?

    Go to change your wallpaper, choose from gallery, then there should be a "wallpaper" section and your wallpapers will be in there.

    Can't seem to find it in the gallery. Is there a specific section I should be in. I put the wallpapers folder in /mnt/sdcard
    I went to downloads and found the d3 wallpapers file. I copied it and then backed out of downloads and created the new folder titled wallpapers. I pasted it in there but im dumb and can't figure this out myself Dx

    That strange... are they individually in the wallpapers folder that you made or are they in a sub-folder, they should be individual. Other than that i'm stumped, sorry I couldn't help more.

    These files have not been deodexed yet so if you would want to try any of them on another device you would have to push both to /system/app or /data/app whichever you choose.

    once they are deodexed then you will be able to install just the app, i'll try to get a deodexed version up soon, just been especially busy this weekend and barely any time to play with the D3 and mess around with stuff.

    never had a D2 so that I don't know but I can assure you, you will A LOT more room using this physical keyboard over both the D1 and D2, the keyboard is very nice on the D3

    Big,

    generally the system dump is most helpful initially for other phones. It allows folks to pull wallpapers, ring tones, graphics etc. to try on other phone.

    I guess apps would be next, again to let folks try the "new" things on other phones. Eventually the aps get pulled apart potentially for use on this phone, as modifications or eventually to theme etc.

    At the development level, the developers share these dumps from all of the phones that get released as a way to try and pick and choose what can be modded, sometimes to fix something broken on another phone, perhaps grab a library or OS file that can help get a developer over a hump on another device. A good example might be to snag audio files or drivers to help make the FM radio work on another device for which the necessary files may be missing, but the hardware is in place. The fm is not specific to the D3, just an example that has been done in the past.

    Generally the sharing of these files across all devices allows developers a way to pick and choose through the files to see if they can get help, or make mods, for this phone or other phones.
