    i am rooted and when i rooted i lost all data/cache. Now my friend wants to root can i get clockwork on his phone and then install one of the roms that doesn't require wipe on his phone? he really doesn't want to lose data!

    edit: will the 1 click root do it?

    That will root it, but you won't have any custom roms installed, so it will just be stock with root.. If you want to flash a custom rom, especially going to a FroYo rom, you will definitely need to wipe..

    Once he is rooted he can use an app like titanium backup to save his data but you definitely want to wipe when you install a new rom.

    Agreed, if they just want root they are fine, if they want a custom rom then they will lose the data/cache. But unless you have 100+ apps i never found this a problem, i mean your google syncs up and keeps your contacts and calendar etc. I just made a list of the apps i had and redownloaded, but now with 2.2 they automatically download after first boot. Not sure if that works coming from 2.0.1/2.1 or if its just from 2.2>2.2.

    Pretty sure it works coming from 2.1, although I could be mistaken.
