    Hello all,

    I have a droid that is rooted and i have beautiful widgets on my phone. i have never upgraded my version of the program since they had abandoned the sense ui looking clock. I was wondering where in the filesystem i can go and backup the program .apk because i have to switch out my droid due to some warranty issues and i know that on the new phone i will automatically be upgraded to the latest version of the program.

    Use Titanium Backup to back up BW.

    I've used it to keep the last good ad-free handcent and have had success with it.

    if you backup with Titanium backup then they will be in a folder called "TitaniumBackup" on your sd card.

    if you use a program like Astro then they'll be in a folder called "Backups" ---> "Apps" on your sd card.

    do you have adb? if so, just search for it in /data/apps and then do "adb pull /data/apps/com.levelup.beautifulwidgets.apk ." or similar (whatever the name of the apk is on your droid. that will put a copy of the apk on your computer.

    if you have a rooted rom with busybox, you could just

    adb shell
    cp /data/apps/com.levelup.beautifulwidgets.apk /sdcard

    and that will put a copy of it on your sdcard. again, make sure the name of the apk file is correct

    No need to worry about hoarding your old Beautiful Widgets apk. The latest version is skinnable. Currently there are about 50 skins to choose from - several of which are the HTC flip clock.

    1+ and there's a Beautiful Widgets thread that also has a few "SenseUI" skins looking like the original banned version which you can download and put on your sdcard. The newer BW has, in my view, more and better features than the original version. So you can get the best of both worlds...more features and an HTC flip clock appearance if that suits you.

    Ok, it is located in /data/apps probably. If not, it will be in /system/apps. Just copy it out to your sdcard and install it from your sdcard onto your new phone.
