Just got my Xoom yesterday. After setup, it automatically began to download apps from the market (the apps on my phone started to download to my xoom from the market). I have since rooted and now after I complete setup, no auto-download from the market. Honestly, the apps are no big deal, didn't do a back up because I can always just download the apps one-by-one. This is just a question to which I wish to know the answer (so please dont reply with "do a backup and you wouldnt have this problem"). My phone is rooted and when I get new roms for it, sometimes the market auto-installs my apps and sometimes not. Why? What is it about the roms that auto-download your apps from the market?
