Best backup app for galaxy?
Is there anything out there which will backup our apps, contacts etc before I flash a new rom to my phone? Is it possible in kies? I'm loath to have to link my face book and google mail contacts again

Backup apps/settings to PC? possible?
Hi all, i have seen many threads regarding backup apps such as wave/titanium pro etc but im wondering if its possible to backup to a PC?

as much as its a naughty word, i liked apples way of backing up using itunes. you simply plugged in your phone and voila its backing up into a friendly restorable format.

i just want a simple backup of my device encase i flash to others roms.

is this possible?

i don't know of such application.

but what is so bad about backing it up to the External SD card?

you want your backup to be with you all the time, so in case of "OMG! happens", you can easily Hard Reset, then restore from backup from the SD card.

once on the SD card, you can easily copy it over to your PC, the next time you hookup your USB cable.

if you want it done automatically, you can always create a script on your PC to grab X files from X folder every time the USB connects to X device

I love the backup software from PalmOS, they works automatically just as you wanted.

I never found a good one that actually works on WinMobile

in Android it's almost perfect, it just missing the part to sync the backups to the desktop automatically.

But that's a minor thing, as you can do the batch command mentioned above.

Yeah... Titanium Back-up is great. You can even try MyBackup Pro. Both are equally good.

MyBackup Pro restores all the apps perfectly but is not able to link those to the Android Market...

what do you guys use to backup all your data before changing firmware
I already flashed my girlfriend's galaxy S twice
and each time i was installing and configuring the device as she want...

Once again there is a new firmware that correct some interesting part (GPS)
but i REALLY don't want to loose 2 hours of my time to
a: install the apps my gf has
b: configure the device (font, ring tone, volume ...)

so question : what are you using to save the time of installing/configurating...

thanks in advance
