Re: phone re-image/backup

I guess what I don't understand is the guys saying NOT to do a backup restore after a ROM upgrade. It takes literally 5 minutes to do the resore pressing like 3 buttons. If it doesn't work, it's no big deal. But if it does, it can save hours of tweaking and work. Yeah, something might not work perfectly or have some "issue down the road" but I would say 99% of the time the issue down the road isn't goig to happen and if it is down the road it really was a problem that was there right after the restore that wasn't noticed.

Also, SPB has a feature called selective backup. If you're concerned, just backup what you want restored after the upgrade and then you don't have to worry about it.

I'll say this again, I had no problem upgrading to MR1 and restoring. It might not work for you, or it might!
I was reporting as a long long user of SPB Backup and a flashacholic that doing a complete restore can have its negative issues at times, I am glad you haven't had any issues but I was just pointing out that issues on full restores because there is some files that cant be backed up on some roms and this can cause crashes, example (ET9IMED will not backup or restore on 3.04 roms and I just thought I give you a heads up since it was asked for others experiences
HTC (Imagio). Change is good and customizing is better, but always remember that backing up should still be the first golden rule...
If I am able to help you, feel free to press
