Alright guys i did my homework and i just want to know whether is it safe to perform it ..

1st i back up my data on my andriod via gmail (contacts) ,apps /data ....SMS Backup and Restore, Call Logs Backup & Restore, and APN Backup & Restore. Each one backs up its respective data to your microSD card (in /sdcard/*appname*BackupRestore/) for easy restoration...before whipping out everything on my sd card and htc sense rom ...

Rooting the phone ......after that i'll flash a custom rom in it
backup all data from gmail/SMS Backup and Restore, Call Logs Backup & Restore, and APN Backup & Restore.

that should be all

is it correct or there is any alternative ?

I need suggestion from the android users

Cheers

After you have flashed a custom ROM, you have to reflash all apps you have used with your prevoius ROM, and then restore app data.
Or wasn't it you wanted to know?

Read that statement again... you save your backup files to the sd card then wipe the sd card. So where's your backup now? To tell you honestly, you are doing it wrong.

Tell us what exactly are you going to do and in what state is your phone right now? Is it rooted, s-off, etc.

but this statement
"backup all data from gmail/SMS Backup and Restore, Call Logs Backup & Restore, and APN Backup & Restore."

doesn't it say im going to backup data from the previous data i had ?

Andriod version (2.3.3)
htc sense version ( 2.1)
kernel version( 2.6.35.10-gd2564fb ..htc [email protected] 18-2 #1)

my phone is htc desire hd / inspire 4g
but i think its the same

isn't it senior member ?

im very afraid to screw my phone up TT__TT

NO, it's NOT the same. Desire is different from Desire HD and both are totally different from Insipre4G. Would you please use the search button before posting?

please don't get mad senior user ...

If first you decide what you want to do with your phone, understand what you need to do to get that, then read a lot to get all necessary info, you will be good to go. Just think first.

    So... you don't need to backup your other apps?

    Okay since you still have a month to prepare... check this thread. It's a bit out dated but this will get you up to speed on what you'll eventually do. At least better understand what rooting requires you to do.

    Then also read this one.. you'll need this too.

    Do your homework, it's incomplete :D

    This is the HTC desire forum. It is not 4g. Are you in the right forum? If not, we can guarantee nothing.....

    No it's not. There's a separate section for HTC Desire HD on XDA.
