Ok, I've tried to use the HTC transfer tool. Unfortunately, it has been unsuccessful. For one, it doesn't seem to have the option to transfer apps. Seems to only transfer user data (pictures, videos, etc.). Second, when I actually tried the backup feature, it only works on other HTC phones running stock firmware. I would get a screenshot, but I don't think this phone came with a screenshot capability without a third party app. Anyway, the app says this "To get started, go to "Settings" on your new phone, tap "Get content from another phone" and follow onscreen instructions." Then the app waits for a wireless connection and asks for a pin. Obviously the other HTC phone I'm borrowing is not useful here, since it's on custom firmware and it's even older than the double shot. It just makes me laugh though, you can't really backup too much without root, but the easiest way to root requires a phone wipe. Puts me in an odd spot.
