    How the heck do we restore our data? Titanium? That won't work due to the lack of USB Storage.

    What do? :eek:

    Here's a guess - get the SD card contents to your PC. Zip them. Do an ADB push of the zip file and then use Astro (will it open zips?) to extract them (or some similar app). Then, use Titanium to restore. Haven't tried it myself but I imagine it's what I'd try unless someone had a better procedure.

    Actually, you're the first person I've heard suggest an adb push. Something short of genius. Don't know why I didn't think of that.... Guess I'm too excited.

    Back your SD card to your computer and load it all back on to your G-Nex. Sync all of your contacts and apps to your Google account prior to activating your G-Nex also. Or I suppose if you have a MAC you can back up your SD card to your computer and zip it up and upload it to mediafire or some other site and just download it from your phone and viola.

    Or this.

    You can do this if you have a Windows PC. If you have a MAC you cannot.

    Not since 2.3 has android been an SD card for its internal mem. This will look the same in windows but function just a bit differently. I dont think there will be a prob backing up and pushing with adb.

    I think Mac users only have to download an app on the market. To the phone not the PC.
