    What is the best way to switch between ROM's while retaining apps and their data? For example, if I were to switch to Bugless Beast from Sapphire, what is the best/fastest way to restore all of my apps and their data? This is with a full wipe of data and cache. I want to make sure my apps keep their settings intact. I have tried TitaniumBackup, but am looking for another method. Thanks

    doesnt not wiping give you errors? i tried installing cyanogen rc2 from stock 1.1 without wiping and was stuck on boot loop. Then redid it this time wiping everything and it installed correctly. ever since then ive been doing clean wipes. and alot of instructions say clean wipe everything then install.
