Sorry, no way. There is no possibility to run this app on higher android - as I wrote before. It is not supported.
YOU CAN EXTRACT IT, maybe installation could work too, but you cant run it and restore your old backup...

Maybe when you use some Costum ROM based on official ROM with android 2.1

EDIT: Official infos from SE -> Not supported on 2.3+

Backup and restore of userdata

I agree in the need for a newbie-friendly backup/restore of userdata.

The official SEMC-apk sadly won't work.

This could be a newbie-friendly simple solution:

Root and backup

Download and install SuperOneClick http://shortfuse.org/

Connect the X10MP to the PC with the USB cable. Celect Charge phone.

Start SuperOneClick and click on Root. Follow instructions. If asked about your Android version is above 2.x, click Yes. Also click Yes to install Busybox.

When finished, turn off the X10MP, and then turn it on again.

Tap Market and search for "My Backup", select My Backup Root and install the app.

Start the app and allow the superuser request, and agree to some license etc.

Tap BACKUP > Data > Local.

Check the data you want to backup and tap OK. Remember the contactlist if you are an off-line person that do not sync to a Google account (now is the time to reconsider to sync it to Google).

Give the backup a name and tap OK, sit back and wait.

Did you use the Notes app, and do wish to keep those notes?

Start Market and search for GTasks and install the app.

33-GTasks.png


When installed, start Notes app. Tap on a note you wish to keep. Longtap on the note (put your finger on the screen and hold it), select Copy all in the popup menu.

35-Notes.png
36-Notes.png
37-Notes.png
38-Notes.png


Exit Notes and start GTasks. Tap on the plus to add a new task. Longtap in the text field and select Paste in the popup menu, and then tap on Done.

34-GTasks.png
39-GTasks.png
40-GTasks.png
41-GTasks.png


Exit GTasks and repeat for all your notes. When finished, tap Syncronize in GTasks.

42-GTasks.png


All your kopied notes are now available in Google Tasks, and are accessible from any app that accesses the Google Tasks.

If you are an offline-person who don't want to sync online, I can recoment Just Notepad for Android to save all your Notes as simple txt-files. Just follow the copy-paste-instruction from above. Tap the small SD-card icon to save each note as a normal txt-file on the SD-card.

Here you install your new custom ROM


Restore data

If you have your contacts synced to a Google account, tap Settings > Accounts & sync > Add account > Google > Next > Sign in. Wait for your account to sync the contactlist and calandar.

If you are an off-line person, and backed up your contacts etc. using My Backup Root or backed up call log, SMS and MMS, tap Market (and log into your Google acount) and search for "My Backup", select My Backup Root and install the app.

Start the app and allow the superuser request, and agree to some license etc. Tap RESTORE > Data > Local.

Select the data file, and check the data to restore. Sit back and wait.

    Backup and restore.apk works only on 2.1 (and less) androids. If you want to use it on higher android, it wont work.
