A while ago I installed the Android Revolution HD 40.3 rom on my HTC One international version.
I really like this rom, but lately it's been acting a wee bit strange since it doesn't let me move/delete widgets when I have the Sense Toolbox 2.7.1 module activated.
I also noticed ARHD 52.0 is out, and I really want to upgrade, but I'm afraid I'll lose my apps and the like. For instance I have SwiftKey installed, and I really like that it keeps track of my typing statistics (words written etc.), but this is not saved in the cloud for it.
I read in their thread that I can install it without wiping the data partition (though it is recommended to do so), but I need assurance. I'm really out of practice when it comes to phone-related stuff.
TL;DR: I want to update Android Revoltuon HD 40.3 to 52.0, but I don't want to lose everything I have. Any thorough (and beginner-friendly) back-up and installation guides out there?
Sorry if this is the wrong forum to ask this, but I couldn't post in the rom's thread and cannot figure out how I get access to do so.
