or am I missing something? Like other users have posted, this is what I do to try a new ROM in SPRecovery: 1. Copy ROM to SD card as update.zip 2. Advanced nandroid backup 3. Factory Reset/Wipe 4. Install new update.zip 5. Restore nandroid DATA Only 6. Reboot All done. All my applications are there as well as all my data, even my home setup and widgets. No need to activate, sync, download or restore anything or even to log into gmail again. Am I missing something?
