alright guys and girls... i just got the touch pro 2 yesterday. its on WM6.1 and i like it, but thinking to upgrade to a cooked rom.

I would like to back-up my current rom for just in case. plus i like my settings right now becuase i get full 3g with my tzones package .... how can i go about backing up my current rom?

also in yalls personal experience whats the best cooked rom out there?

also could i get weather to show on my today screen with my current WM6.1 running touchflo 3d 2.1?

any other cool stuff/tips/tricks for this phone i should know about?

thanks in advance!

I would use SPB Backup. It will backup all your contacts, settings, programs, etc... It even will allow you to restore all this when you upgrade to different roms. There is a setting for Rom upgrade mode.

Can't really say there is one rom that is better than the rest. You are just going to have to see which is best for you. Personally, I've tried Energy rom, Valkyrie, Josh's perfect black, athine, itje's, and a few others, but they all had there ups and downs. sense 2.1 is the fastest out there though, and the most stable. The 2.5 is pretty cool, but too slow for my taste.

Also do a search for MaxTTM and HDWalls. HDWalls is used to make highdef background cabs, and maxttm has several graphic tweak options.

World Wide English.

SPB backups will not back up your rom per se I dont think. They will back up all the stuff that you put on your rom since you got the phone though.

There is a way to back up the stock rom but it involves some specialized tools that are available in the rom section. To restore your phone to what it is today after installing a cooked rom you would have to flash back the factory rom then restore your backup from SPB or sprite.

SPB Backup will only backup your programs, data, music, etc, but NOT the rom itself. Really, all you need to do is backup your data, and that way, you can just reload the default rom if you need to, then restore your data after that.

SPB is not free though....Microsoft has a free program that also works well called myphone.

Oh, and btw, I just flashed that same Rom (EnergyROM Phoenix 2) and lovin it.

Backup of Rom...
Did a little searching, and did come across this. I personally haven't tried it, but it sounds like it should work.

Check this out...
