    Hello all,

    First off, if this is in the wrong area, will the mods please move this to the correct area. Secondly, I've searched and couldn't come up with any "good" results. My questions is this:

    If I root my D1 to 2.2, will I lose all of my text messages, or will I be able to retain them?

    I guess the question would pertain towards the OTA 2.2, but since that is sometime in the future, I doubt that anyone would be able to give much of a credible answer to that. I've been on the fence about rooting to 2.2 because of slight chance of bricking. And then there's the whole thing of voiding the warranty, but whatever. I mainly am worried about updating to 2.2 and losing my text messages, contacts, and games save status'. Especially my info for Homerun Battle 3D.

    I'm sure that plenty of you will be able to assist in "edging" me towards the dark side.

    Thanks,
    Josh

    if you wipe data and cache yes you will lose them, however you can download my backup it will save all your data and messages

    If you wait for the OTA update.. you wont have to backup and restore anything, no data is lost

    If you root and go 2.2, you have a few options for backing up. I (and many others) use titanium backup, which is awesome. I use SMSBackupAndRestore for texts and it works GREAT.. idk specifically about game save data
