    I am going to update to sholes 2.05 and I read that it is best to do a data wipe before upgrading. Is there any way to restore all of my apps and settings? I don't want to have to reinstall everything :(

    Yes. Just make a nandroid backup before you wipe. Then restore that back up file after you wipe :)

    You can use Astro for the apps, or you can use Back up Pro, many choices. You should wipe your avatar pic first, haha.

    I use Astro for Alps only. Back up pro and titanium are good for settings.

    Use Astro to backup your Apps..
    your settings, use the other 2 apps mentioned before

    I only use Astro file manager, only takes me a minute or two to get my settings back to the way I like them.

    I have... I did it when I switched from Sholes to BB.

    I flashed the Sholes ROM, restored the nandroid, then flashed the BB rom and kept my data when I flashed the BB rom so it kept all my settings/data etc. :)

    **** edit ***
    Let me clarify... I had Sholes... I un-rooted. Did a factory reset. Then re rooted my phone, made a nandroid back up of my phone, with no ROM, then flashed the BB ROM, and then restored my Nandroid backup that I had made prior to installing BB.

    Sorry for not being clear. I don't even know where my brain was when I wrote the first post :icon_eek:

    Don't use Astro. USE NANDROID!

    Make a Nandroid backup of your current configuration. Either do a simple or do an advanced and only backup Data. Once you have wiped your system to install the ROM, go into Nandroid and restore only the Data you had just backed up. This will not overwrite anything in the ROM.

    This is the best, fastest, and easiest way of doing this.

    I just used MyBackupPro -- $5 on the app store. Seems to work great so far.

    I take it back, MyBackupPro farted all over my Droid. I'll just do it the old fashioned way....

    I have switch between many ROM's. I simply use Astro to back up my apps. Wipe, personally restore my Settings, and use Astro to re-install my apps. I mean c'mon, does it take that long to restore your settings?

    You always want to do a clean wipe because starting fresh is better and less buggy...
