    Question (And I appolagize if this has been asked before),

    I am running CM9 and loving it. Is there any way to backup the "setup" of the phone like the shortcuts and widgets I have on the home screens? Just a pain when I have to put them back on after restoring everything in TB.

    Thanks for the help.

    If you're using a custom launcher you can do this. I know Apex and Nova allow it. Just look under the settings, you'll see something for backing up and restoring.

    On CM9 you may be running trebuchet? I'm not sure if it does backups?

    To my knowledge, Apex's desktop backup only backs up icon, folder and shortcuts information, but not widgets.

    I don't know of any launcher that backs up widgets correctly. ADW may do it, but I've always had problems.
