I use PIM Backup to backup everything on my phone such as texts, call logs, contacts, appointments, etc. I put all of the backup files into a folder on the internal storage. Works well IM

Re: Upgrade Windows 6.1 to 6.5

Please note that when 6.5 is officially released, we won't get it. Diamonds are getting passed over. Customs ROMs are and will remain to be the only way to get WinMo 6.5 on a diamond.

Two questions:
1) can I restore a backup that is in Internal Storage of one device to another?
2) If I flash a new ROM, does my Internal Storage remain intact?

Re: Upgrade Windows 6.1 to 6.5

Your Internal Storage remains as long as you don't format it but hard resetting or flashing a ROM won't format it.

Is it possible to transfer the Internal Storage info from one Diamond to another?
In other words, restoring a backup, but to another device.

Re: Upgrade Windows 6.1 to 6.5

So i have finally Flashed a ROM to my phone, and I must say I am absolutley in LOVE! but my questions is, do all ROMS on this site have the Tethering hack? I am still confused on the whole tethering thing, and I do have a Sprint Unlimited Plan....but not paying the extra $15 for the Phone as mobile....can someone tell me if I need to go pay the extra money....or if my ROM is keeping my bill safe.

Go to >
HKLM/ConnectionSharing/InternetSharing/Settings

and look at ForceCellConnection
If it says Sprint, you should be fine.
If it says Phone as Modem, then you need to download the Internet Sharing cab.
You can also just tether to your pc and see if the connection on your device says "SPRINT"
If it does, you're ok.
But check the registry to make sure using a Registry Editor such as
DotFred Task Manager 3.1 or one of your choice. Then you can tether to your pc and see if the connection says SPRINT.
Most include the Internet Sharing reg edit in their ROM but you can check by doing the above.

Ok well when I am connected to the internet and I go under connection settings on my phone it says sprint...is that what your talking about? I don't know what HKLM stands for...but I am using the intxROM 2.5 [WM 6.1 Manilla 2.1]

HKEY = HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
You can go to those registry settings with a Reg Editor BUT
it sounds like your set up is fine if the connection says SPRINT
