    I am new to working with the incredible. I have the droid x and wife has the incredible. I have my X rooted / and other mods done to it. Including bootstrap with backup/restore.

    Is it possible to do a complete backup of the incredible? if so ... How?

    Thanks !

    Ben

    To do a full Nandroid backup you will need to root the phone. Things like text messages won't be backed up in the Nandroid but you can use a variety of apps to accomplish that.

    Um the INC actually comes with an app for that purpose. It's called backup assistant. Of course I'm sure AM has other ones too if you search for backup.

    Backup Assistant is only for contacts.

    You can use clockwork backup/restore built into ROM Manager to backup your entire phone, that's what I use, and have never had an issue with it.

    To back up texts, there's a great free app called "SMS Backup & Restore", and Titanium Backup can be used for applications. :D

    All require root access except for Backup Assistant. I believe that Astro has a built-in feature for restoring apps too, though-which you don't need to be rooted to use. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

    Yeah I knew there were other apps. I don't really want to mess with rooting unless I have too. Lol thanks for the info though, Ryan.

    Oh, well that information was supposed to go to WsW-WYATT-EARP in case he were to root it, since he did so for his Droid X :D

    I'm using My Backup to back up data and apis on my Dinc. So far it seems to be working. I haven't needed to do a full restore fortunately, but I have done several partial restores. Just restored a play list that disappeared this morning.

    That leads me to a question. Has anyone else experienced occasional random loss of data such add pictures or play lists? It has happened to me a few times.
