    Ok, I have a really dumb question after all these months.

    When I do a complete wipe when changing ROM's, how do I get Backup Pro or Root explorer or Titanium installed?

    For example, when I wipe, I sign into my Gmail account to start syncing. I then go to market and download Backup Pro or Titanium first and then restore my apps and data but by that time th sync process has already loaded a few apps.

    Is there another way? I ask because as soon as I "sign in" it automatically begins the sync apps process and I was trying to avoid that.

    Thanks in advance!

    choose sign in later and keep the .apk on your sdcard instead of trying to install from the market.

    thanks! Knew it was simple. But BackupPro and Titanium are not in the /data/app folder. :(

    Never mind..found them!
