Absolutely. Any more, when I get a new employee I just do a NAND restore on their new EVO as I keep one with all the good stuff in and my information out. I also have a NAND backup of my phone customized for me. You can do multiple NAND backups and use which ever you want.

Just put your micro SD card, that has the NAND backup on it, in the new EVO and after you root, do a quick NAND restore. It will be like you never replaced your phone and you will be back up and running in less than 5 minutes after you root.

Thought there was still an issue if you used Amon RA 1.8 for nand which backs up WiMax.img When you restore to a new phone it overwrites the new phone RSA Keys...no 4G then ??

What's the best program to do a full image backup? One that doesn't mess up 4g when you restore

So if I get replacemrnt Evo (unrooted) and restore my Nand Back up in the new device, I still have to Re root the new device or does the Nand Back up auto root it for me?

If it's the opposite of what I asked, should I root new device 1st then nand restore?

I'm no expert and still new to this coming from Windows for several years but I think you are mistaken.

I have used Titanium to restore contacts and settings. Found out settings are in Back up/restore.

I chose [DESKTOP] HTC Sense and all of my folders I made and everything in them always restore perfectly even with the missing links of the apps (if I haven't re installed that app)

I chose [Alarms} Clock 1.00 and my alarms and the tone for them were set instantly.

User dictionary is in there too.



Haven't quite figured out the contacts altho I have done both multiple times after wipes or hard resets or flashing to different roms. But I think its the one that says [CONTACTS/CALLS]

No, his explanation was exactly correct. You can use it to back up all of your system data, but that will cause more problems than it solves 9 times out of 10.

O I C! I guess that would be why I can't figure most of it out. I'm one of the lucky ones then.
