What to backup before flashing a custom ROM?


Friday 13th of July 2012 / androidforums.com
It's been awhile since I've flashed a ROM on any phone. So here's a few questions that I cannot seem to find answers to:1. With Titanium Backup, do I want to "backup all user apps" or "backup all user apps + system data?"2. Do I need to backup the content on the internal and/or external SD cards? 3. Is there a way to backup my current homescreen layout?4. Other than SMS messages, is there anything else to consider backing up?Thanks!

dont just jump on the bandwagon and root your phone with a one click thing without DOING YOUR OWN RESEARCH!!! im tired of seeing people who rooted their phone without really understanding anything about what they are doing and coming on here shitting their pants asking ignorant questions because they're stuck in a bootloop and don't know any way into recovery except ROM manager. if you want to root your phone by all means more power to you. on a phone like the ally it will make a HUGE difference. but don't go one click root it and flash a custom ROM without any more in depth knowledge. that's asking for trouble.RootingSome Good ReadingTo Root With SOC or Not To Root With SOC That is Thee Question[GUIDE] The ADB EraPreferred Root Method[GUIDE] FroYo 2.2.1 for Root Users!

Android Forums - View Single Post - [INFO] My backup / Restore routines


Friday 28th of December 2012 / androidforums.com
I've created this thread so that when I am in a position to recommend how I would back up, I can simply refer to this thread.This thread is predominantly for root backups, however some backups are non-root (which I will identify).I will list each app and what I use it to backup and the settings I use, starting with non-root.Non-RootSMS - SMS Backup+Description: Automatically backup SMS, MMS and call log entries using a separate label in Gmail / Google Calendar. It is also possible to restore SMS and call log entries back to the phone (MMS not supported yet).

Android Forums - View Single Post - How to get more RAM (rooted devices only)


Friday 16th of September 2011 / androidforums.com
IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT THIS IS ABOUT, BEST NOT TO TRY IT!!Get more RAM and faster responses by disabling verify-bytecode!Here's a little tip that would give you more RAM on your device. Also check out the links below.AS WITH ANY MODDING PROCEDURE FOR YOUR PHONE, THIS GUIDE ALSO COMES WITH NO WARRANTY. AUTHOR HOLDS NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY DIRECT AND INDIRECT CONSEQUENCES OF FOLLOWING THIS GUIDE. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE MADE A NAND BACKUP BEFORE PROCEEDING. This is not useful in odexed ROMs & devices with 1GB or more RAM. However, this will give a performance boost in deodexed ROMs as much as odexing system & data apps. This is an alternative for odexing. It's not that you can't apply this tweak on an odexed ROM but rather, it's useless to do so.Open Terminal Emulator on phone or adb shell from PC and type the following.susetprop dalvik.vm.verify-bytecode falsesetprop dalvik.vm.dexopt-flags v=n,o=vrm /data/dalvik-cache/*rm /cache/dalvik-cache/*rebootROM devs could add this to the /data/local.prop or build.prop. dalvik.vm.verify-bytecode = falsedalvik.vm.dexopt-flags=v=n,o=vAdvanta

Android Forums - View Single Post - HOW TO: Flawlessly sync your music to your Android with Winamp! (56k warning!)


Monday 17th of May 2010 / androidforums.com
Ok guys, this is for windows users only I think... sorry mac users..You can also sync your iPod or PMP of choice as well, anything that has mass storage mode. So, after reading countless "how do i sync my music"and "it's too hard" threads/posts, I decided to make this guide to simplify the process. 1.) Download and Install the latest version of WinAmp, from here:Winamp Media Player - MP3, Video, and Music Player - Winamp(Free version works just fine! It's what I'm using here.)2.) Add your local media library folder to winamp.There are a few ways to do this, but the way I'm showing you will keep your library up-to-date automatically. Make sure you add all your folders... (Music library folder, Limewire etc.)*I also select "Rescan at startup"* <-- This will keep your library updated everytime you load up Winamp! There is also a manual scan method as well. Ok now that your library is loaded up, you need to connect your Android/PMP in mass storage mode. Make sure USB debugging is not on, unless you have the proper drivers installed. Also, remember which w

Friday 08th of June 2012 / androidforums.com
Note that if you intend to re-root after flashing the RUU you should do a backup with Titanium Backup or MyBackupPro before starting. This will wipe your device of all settings, apps, etc. Basically, anything that isn't backed up onto your SD card! This is also going to be the way of flashing firmware updates for those of you who do not get S-OFF. Either that or take OTAs, which may be problematic if you're running a custom ROM.Step 1) How to install and configure the Android SDKFirst, you need to download all of the following software:Note that if you followed my rooting guide, this is the same setup, except the RUU. If you still have all of this installed, you just need to download the RUU, everything else (SDK, HTC Sync, ROM and TWRP) are exactly the same.1) HTC Sync is needed to link your phone to your computer with the proper drivers. On XDA they link the HTC drivers by themselves. These are fine, but I can't find a direct link on the HTC site, so I'm linking HTC Sync.2) Mini-SDK is a multiple platform set of fastboot and ADB so that you do not have to download the full Android
