I do like the idea of flashing different ROMs, but am unsure how to go through getting my contacts and old apps loaded onto the new ROM. Is this possible, or do most people not have contacts or apps after flashing and have to start from scratch every time? 8)
I have never found custom as reliable stock based roms. I have found restoring my data onto stock base roms works. Sometimes I need to flash a "helper" rom in between.
Titanium backup seems to me to have made custom roms even more unreliable. But many think it's great.
At one time on some particular custom roms Google would automaticlly restore all my apps that were on the previous rom!! Just like contacts! But not ever since.
Contacts are automatically restored by google.
